Cûmbûs ins a turkish intrument, very similar to a saucepan, but also to a banjo. She's part of a large family with many variants, exactly like banjo. I guess my cûmbûs is a toy, not a true musical instrument, cause it refuses to be correctly tuned, whatever the position of the bridge. I played something just to kidding a bit, anyway.

Happy Easter everybody!

That's really cool !!

I almost bought one of those a few years back, just for fun.

I like the split screen too, its almost impossible to find a few old guys like myself that want to jam.

Ciao Marco,
Had to run through this several times. It is just so much fun to listen to.
Thanks for all your videos.

I like your swing, Marco! Your phrasing on the solos is much like a horn player and I appreciate that! Now I want one of those little guys!

Dan, Mike, Laurence, Tom, Patrick: thank you for your comments! Patrick, you've nailed the point...I love listening to horns, reeds and trying to assimilate their language.

Most enjoyable! You're obviously one of identical triplets, and all of you so musical! ;)

I notice your Cümbüs has 4 strings (I've seen them with 4 pairs, mandolin-style) - how do you tune it? (Didn't sound out of tune to me on the recording, BTW.)
Cheers,
John

Hey Marco my old friend, I don't know what that little thing is -- BUT you sure SWING it.
Hey, Do you live around Milan? You said something about being at the Concert, which is on June the 28th.
Do you need tickets? Of course you will come back Stage after the Concert. Tell me more, so we can meet and talk. Eddy

Hi Eddy! When your concert has been announced in Italy, I immediately bought 3 tickets for me, my wife and my daughter... the latter is not only a good music listener but also a good english speaker (I can't understand/speak your language), so I've got my personal translator. I will be honored to greet you after the concert and hope it sill be really possible. Marco

John, thank you for your comment! I tune my Cümbüs FCGD, that's by fifths...easy for a tenor player. I show three pics of my instrument: please note the external device for neck adjusting!

CGDA - Posted - 05/11/2019:  09:31:39
