Thnka you. I'm very happy to hear you playing. Very touching and brilliant.
This piece is very charming and not ordinary. Everybody want to hear something special, original, something never hear before.

You hit the the target. The target is our heart.

Thanks everyone. No capo. It would also work with the capo in 5th and probably reduce position changes, but low G would no longer be an option.

< shameless self promotion > if you liked this also check my website. You'll probably like the other ottoman piece I've uploaded in delcamp, viewtopic.php?f=20&t=40702 . There's another syrtos tune I will record at some point, will let you know :)

Thanks - I have more or less got it now :) It works bothin Am and Dm I think -I am trying it in D now. Onepart I couldnt quite get right is bars 8-9 where it changes harmony radically Were you playing D - G - C?

I played the first part to a couple ofpeople and they love it!

Well, if I was going to accompany with chords I'd use d major. Or you can think of the mode as having the same key signature with harmonic G minor. I think I just did a chromatic run A, Bb,B,C in octaves. d major to c minor and back is a pretty standard transition for this makam.

Thanks - that is helpful - especially the G harm minor idea.

Thank you fazley.

Merhaba Ali. What arrangement did you use? Are there other arrangements of classical ottoman music for guitar published or performed in Turkey? Any free scores or videos on the internet?

Absolutely beautiful and very enjoyable to listen to - I just love those harmonies. :D :casque:
You played it great too - with such sensitivity and good rhythm. :bravo:

I've always liked traditional music from the eastern side of Europe. I even have vinyl records of it. Do you know that piece Koynbaba by Carlo Domeniconi? Its a great piece and I think based on a Turkish folksong.

Ali, I would interested too if you have more ideas for tradional turkish music that would be good on guitar

I found a variety of interesting tunes on the website Sxedio mentioned earlier ... http://www.neyzen.com/cargah.htm
