This method and its accompanying recording are for the beginning and intermediate oud student interested in gaining a stronger understanding of makam theory and practice on the oud, while also providing advice and exercises useful for improving overall playing technique. Three beautiful and commonly heard makams are presented, specifically Rast, Mahur and Nikriz. The unique characteristics of each of these makams are described and illustrated in detail through exercises, etudes and traditional repertoire, using a wide variety of rhythms and compositional forms, and paired with audio recordings to guide you in your practice.

Some helpful background information.
No clear explanations, especially of symbols. Far too many assumptions.
It focusses almost entirely on Ottoman oud-playing and what I needed was Arabic, especially Iraqi. This was not stated in the blurb.
Clear guidance needs to be given on accidentals and the method of realising the studies which was lost on me and I am a professional musician and teacher with a degree and diplomas in music.
The pictures of the pick/plectrum were useless too.
