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 ...

Love the feel in this and sympathize with purchasing instruments without playing first. This end of the world I never get a chance to play first unless a very expensive new instrument. Can still cost well over $1000 for most saxes and not a lot one can do if the intonation is crap.+1
Fantastic! Your guitar has this bombastic clear sound of Leo Kottke.+1

fanne Thanks Lenny! sorry for the drums but John insisted to play the track...and he is dead so I couldn't refuse:) +1
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! :)

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
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

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
Super! The tuning isn`t so bad, Love it!:)+1

fanne Thanks Ake! +0
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

Can you play the track player?

Start and stop, right? That's easy... if you do not have to drop your instrument while doing it.
Get to know the keyboard shortcuts and control the player without ever dropping your plectrum again.
Makes practice and jamming a cinch.
