oud nearing the end of illness

returning to playing again, trying to think, and oddly
this is probably the most unique oud playing i've done;
it really brings out the range of the Shehata instrument.
i wanted to play in close, develop clusters; the result
isn't anything i've heard before. some of the fingering
technique is from my violin or viola playing; the right
hand is on its own. there's almost a gaiety at work,
fractured and coalescing. enjoy.

damn :-(
