cobza and rebab

I love playing the cobza; it can sound like a miniature orchestra, even
with an incredibly short neck. It's the shortness that allows the strings
to fan out at the other end, so that the double and triple courses may be
plucked as individual strings.

The rebab is new, two-stringed from Palestine, and difficult. I've yet to
find an online picture of this particular style.
