Giorgio Cordini: Bouzouki Technique - Videolesson language English - with TAB


INTRODUCTION AND TUNING The bouzouki is a string instrument, originally created in Greece in the late 20s. It belongs to the the long neck lutes category, and its roots are to be found in more an- cient instruments, such as the Pandouris, the Tambouras and the turkish Saz. The bouzouki’s body is round and it’s built with staves. It used to have three rows of strings, and they were tuned according to the song being played. The most popular tuning was DAD. Only in the late 50s the virtuoso Manolis Chiotis came up with the current four dou- ble string setup and with the CFAD tuning (from the lower string). He was inspired by a standard guitar tuning, actually bringing the upper four strings down a whole tone. In Greece the Bouzouki is both a comping and a lead instrument, so it’s often played either to back up a singer or to play arpeggios, melodies and complex improvisations.
