Hi all, aside from a brief example given my Stelios Keromytis does anybody know of any recordings of this tuning scheme? Or songs that work well in it? I have heard "To Daxtiri" is in it but I haven't tried that song in a while.

I know its mentioned in Markos' song Karadouzeni, so I imagine it was commonly used way back when, for playing just for playing Xouzam as far as we know?

Thanks for any potential information!

Pierce

How about Karadouzeni by Gentisaris? (also called I tuned my baglama to karadouzeni).

I am pretty sure its in Karadouzeni, re-sol-la. I have actually found a variety of songs that work well in that tuning, but I am having a little harder time with Arampien!

The song Fatime-zeïbekiko, recorded in New York in 1929 by Manolis Karapiperis, but never issued, is now issued (both takes!) on the CD accompanying Stavros Kourousis book From Tambouras To Bouzouki (orp...@hotmail.gr)

This is to my knowledge the only commercial (well almost commercial, as it wasn't issued at the time) recording using Arapien douzeni.

Watch the spelling Tambouras uses for Arapien: This is the correct spelling in English. In Greek, we may write it as Αραπιέν, which I prefer, since The Arab is Ο Αράπης, not Ο Αράμπης, but some use the spelling Αραμπιέν, “transferring” the French spelling into the Greek language, which is not correct.

Oh!  And try to find and buy Stavros' book by all means, if you are interested in Discography!
