    Alright cool dude, so tell me.

    Yeah, you can hear "Minor Swing" influences in the playing, I will find the track and send it over to you.

    Awesome dude, thanks for the vids. Very impressed to the first vid (haven't watched the second). Dude I just now remembered you were Greek.

    Also, notice the alternate picking, it's fast, both of these date back in 1940-1950s.

    Ofc, the more details the more expensive.

    btw, here's a few bouzouki solos you might want to check out.

    You'll hear odd measures, like 5/8, 5/4, etc. That's why those measures are so natural to us, Greeks, when we hear them, it's in our tradition.

    Right. But they're really nice and the one that I played in the avatar had a lot of detail abalone and etc. I think it was a honeymoon instrument or something to celebrate their marriage.

    That's true, good ones can cost quite a lot, particularly cause of the detailing with abalones, mother of pearls, etc.

    Indeed! I'd like to have one, but they can cost some serious dollars.

    The one I'm playing in that picture was custom made in Greece for a couple. It was pretty sweet.
