Other Stringed Instruments Video Thread....

Well the guitar forum has one, Why not OSI!

nice going, Sean! =)

here are some:

oud:
asturias by albeniz --farid alatrash--it's very old, hence the grainy quality
improv--farid alatrash again

balalaika:
monti's csardas with bala and guitar--the csardas is one of my favorite pieces in the universe
paganini on balalaika--not sure of the artist--there are some mistakes, but you get an idea of what the instrument is like

more later. =D

Nice vids beanbag, I've always dug the balalaika.

Bulbul tarang (also called Indian banjo):
YouTube - indian banjo keyboard,film song,(nagin)ravi padmanabha

Mohan veena:
YouTube - Pt.Vishwa Mohan Bhatt-PT2
Vishwa Mohan Bhatt is an interesting dude. He grew up learning Indian music but later started listening to bluegrass and grew to love it. He actually cut an album with Jerry Douglas (a bluegrass Dobro player) that merges the two genres.

Banjo (you can never have too much banjo! ):
YouTube - Duke Davis Banjo Band plays "Ida"
YouTube - eddie peabody

Misc:
YouTube - CATS AND THE FIDDLE KILLIN' JIVE
These cats are crazy. You've got got great harmonys, a tiple, bass, tenor guitar, and another one I'm not sure what it is (baritone uke maybe?).

YouTube - Eddie Peobody in 'Strum Fun'
Eddie Peobody playing a few different instruments.

YouTube - EDDIE PEOBODY In 'HULA HEAVEN'
Another one of Eddie Peobody. About half way into the vid he plays violin.... that's just sick....

the balalaika is extremely fun to play but extremely difficult to play correctly. I would be classified as a highly unorthodox player--I don't use my left thumb to hold chords and I use a leather pick, mainly to spare my classical guitar nails.

I wanted to post a video of moscow nights (the song) but all I could find were videos of the group moscow nights. they're a good group, but not what I wanted. I think itunes has a recording of the russian red army orchestra--which includes balalaikas--playing moscow nights. it's really quite pretty.

Wow, no one's posted in this thread for a while, but I felt I had to share this video again because it's soo inspiring and uplifting. Uke master Jake Shimabukuro from Hawaii and guitar hero Tommy Emmanuel from Australia just KILLING IT on live TV.
