saz problems
  -- best --
  -- saz with six strings --
  -- violin with azure carter, tamburi --

the saz nut (where the strings leave the pegs and
enter the fingerboard) is so worn down that it's
impossible to hold the strings in place; as a
result, two were taken out, and six remain. the
effect is that of a leaner, more despairing sound
i think. still the untempered scale works wonders
and the result is like the starts and stops of
everything else in my life.

along with this, there's a violin piece, mainly
on the high string. - enjoy.
