Here is an improvisation where I started out with a 6/8 beat created on my Roland Handsonic first then improvised a track on my Egyptian Shehata Oud over it. The drums include doumbek, daf, shakers and some low tuned djembes. I also added a bell track to add some sharp ambiance to the mix. The strings were added last via Sample Tank 4 and the Miroslav Philharmonic library. I use my trusty You Rock midi guitar to trigger midi samples and it works way better than any midi guitar pickup I've tried. Towards the middle of the song I bring in my G&L Comanche electric guitar run through my Axe FX II. The Axe FX setting combines some drive in a Marshal style amp sim with some delay and reverb.
The overall mood of this improvisation is a bit dark and mysterious. I kind of imagine someone walking through a dark mist at night seeing strange creature silhouettes in the shadows while trying to ignore them as they try and find a place of light.
Thanks for listening :-)
Here is an improvisation on my Egyptian Shehata oud. I just played whatever came to my mind at the time.
Later I added two tracks of doumbek, a shaker track and a handpan track on my Roland handsonic. The last track is on my Gibson Les Paul to add some ambient textures to the mix.
The mood of this song kind of reminds me of a person trying to summon a djinn to fullfill their wishes. Beware though, djinn always find a way to double cross you with their powers.
Thanks for listening #oud #djinn #egyptian
Here is an improvisation on my Egyptian oud. I added a few tracks of udu and hand drums via my Roland Handsonic. I also added a couple tracks of ambient guitar via my axe fx 2 and Epiphone Les Paul. Fractal background was created in jwildfire.
The overall mood of the song is kind of mysterious like someone discovering a series of strange unknown phenomena.
Thanks for listening :-)
Here is another improvisation on my Egyptian oud. I added some doumbek and other drums via my Roland Handsonic. There is also a bass track on my Musicman Stingray 5. The last track is my G&L Comanche hooked into my Ravish Sitar pedal with some distortion on it.
The overall mood reminds me of a caravan slowly plodding along through a hot desert. Thanks for listening :-) #oud #egyptian #guitar
Here is an original composition on my Egyptian oud. It started out as a improvisation on the oud then I added five drum tracks via my Roland Handsonic. Three of the tracks are a sample of a doumbek, an udu drum and the other two are a hand pan.
Overall the song has a feel of an ancient international trader traveling on their route. Thanks for listening :-) #originalmusic #egypt #oud
Here's an original improvisation on my Egyptian Oud. It starts out with oud and then a few tracks on my tar drum. Later an udu, hand pan and Irish bones are added to the mix. Towards the end of the song I bring in an electric guitar with some vibrato effects on it.
Fractals were created in jwildfire and the video was composed in Adobe After Effects.
The overall mood of the song reminds me of ancient structures being worn away by sandy erosion. Thanks for listening :-) #oud #egyptian #handpan
Here's am improvisation that started out with a beat on an empty kombucha bottle. I have to play this song now whenever I run out of kombucha.
Later I added an oud track with a ton of reverb on it to create an ambient fill in the background. The rest of the tracks include the main oud improvisation as well as three tracks on my udu, a track on my doumbek and a shaker track. Towards the end of the song I brought in my G&L Fallout with an effect that has five different octaves per note played.
Gotta keep stockpiles of kombucha around :-) thanks for listening. #oud #kombucha
Here is a little jam that started out as a multitrack drum beat in a malfuf format. The malfuf beat is a basic 2/4 groove with a strong doum lead and evenly spaced tek beats. I also added a tuned gong, some cowbells and a tambourine track in addition to the doumbek.
Once the rhythm tracks were in place I improvised to the beat on my Egyptian Shehata oud. Overall the mood reminds me of a slow journey somewhere on horseback.
Thanks for listening :-)
Here is an improvisation on my Egyptian Shehata Oud along with some hand drums. I started out with a maksum drum beat composed of a cajon, doumbek, udu and shaker. Maksum translates to "cut in half" and is a basic 4/4 style beat in Middle Eastern music. Once the drum beat was in place I improvised an oud riff over it and later a jaw harp track. My jaw harp is in the key of F so it complements my Arabic oud tuning perfectly.
Towards the end of the jam I added an electric guitar track on my home made partsocaster with a tricky delay on it that repeats each note 4 times. Thanks for listening and watching :-)
Here is an improvisation on my Egyptian oud along with some hand drum tracks added via my Roland Handsonic. The hand drums are a mix of cajon, djembes, Asian cymbols and some metallic pots. Later in the song I added a couple tracks of electric guitar on my Gibson Les Paul. The overall feel of the song reminds me of an archaeologist discovering some kind of ancient prophecy written on clay tablets of some kind. Thanks for listening :-] #oud #guitar #originalmusic
Here is an original improvisation on my Egyptian Oud. Later I added a couple doumbek tracks as well as a shaker and tar track. Towards the end I added a baglama saz track. The mood of this song reminds me of a couple sword fighters getting ready for a duel. Thanks for listening :-)
