    All I can say is WWOOOOOOOAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH D00D!!!!!

    I love the oud. If I recall right, it’s the direct ancestor of the Renaissance lute (another instrument I love), whose name is a corruption of the Arabic al-oud.

    p.s. I LOLd at the snippets of Asturias and Malagueña around 5:20-5:50!
