I shouldn’t have upload this,there goes my reputation…the song sounds completely out of tune.
But on the other hand it may give you guy’s some good advice: Don’t buy an instrument you haven’t played!!
I bought this Irish bouzouki at Thomann, brand name Thomann!? So it must be made in some East-European country.
The sound is more then O.K. but it came with the strings flat against the neck, so I had to make rod adjustments before I could play a single ...

The sound is more then O.K. but it came with the strings flat against the neck, so I had to make rod adjustments before I could play a single note, and….. After a while I found out the thing couldn’t be properly tuned!!, from the 5 fret onwards it sounded out of tune.
I will take it to my luthier but I fear the worst; bad placement of the frets.
Anyway I played (and recorded it M/S) with the one and only John Bonham, he on his Ludwig and me doing some assistance on Toontrack’s EZ drummer.
Jimmy couldn’t make it to the show ,so it needs electric guitar, John Paul wasn’t also at the party, so it needs bass and the Irish guest musicians missed the boat(that’s what you get with Irishmen)so Celtic instruments; Bohdran, Irish whistle, bagpipe…are more then welcome.
Robert arrived mush too late, only in time to say a few words at the end….the guys are getting’ old…

Scrumpyjoe Bob's getting old quickly now like the rest of us, I reckon he's trying to go before he pays me back the £5-00 he's owed me since 1974. Sounded like a good gig anyway even without the lads :-) +1

Super John !
I believe that it is necessary to buy the instrument in its country of origin, and especially to put the prize. No mystery :)

titi Bouzouki is Greek originally. The Irish people suited him. +1

I've always been told I have a very good ear for folk music, as I can't tell if something is in tune or not. This sounds great to me!+1

WanHu "Good enough for folk" was the battle cry of guys who couldn't get their guitars in tune. Life is too short to be pernickity. +1

Scrumpyjoe
Are you swapping between Dm and D as well as being slightly out of tune? I'll have a bash at the backing or bohdrain if you like.+1

Scrumpyjoe
fanne Indeed Joe,intro is in D and the theme in Dm,middelpart again in Dm, all tuned a few cents higher the 440 for an A(lost track of the right pitch with all this problems to get the thing in tune.Any add is more then welcome Joe! +0

fanne It all started out as an learning process to get the instrument recorded and I guess the main reason why I put this thing in a life situation was my annoyance for the tuning, hoping it would sort of camouflage the problem and indeed it became fun to do and the annoyance became less disturbing I can even listen to it now without hitting the stop knob :) +0

It's not the tune. I think it's the Gravity wave, they found today in the U.S. :)
Great track, John. And cool cheering crowd! :)
