First off: I have absolutely *no* idea what the appropriate forum for this would be. It touches on a few things, including bowed instruments, wind instruments, and traditional Turkish/Arabic music. If a mod decides that it is better served elsewhere, please move it. ---- I've been GASsing for a fretless guitar for a while, but I lucked out when I stumbled upon a used fretless Agile at Guitar Center. The person who set it up had adjusted it out of easy playability, so I wound up getting a bargain with easily correctable flaws. It's been my intention to tune it in fifths, and to use it with an eBow for cello/viola/violin parts and flute parts. I already use my other electrics in much the same way, and am comfortable with eBow use, but I wanted to be able to slide into and out of pitches, something which is impossible with a fretted neck. So, I was on YouTube, looking to see if anyone is already doing what I want to do, and I ran across this: It's interesting in its own way, although most of the examples I found of such music treat the instrument as a one-string, vertically played instrument. I figure that I'll have to put myself through a bunch of ear-work to get a handle on it, but does anyone know of sources for learning traditional music of this sort?
