Full Version: Traditional Instruments
GMC Forum > Discussion Boards > CHILL OUT
Cosmin Lupu
Each morning, I get my coffee after breakfast and start browsing the GMC forum, while having a nice music in the background. This morning, I have discovered a wonderful melody played on an Asian instrument called guzheng - it mesmerized me and also inspired me to write this thread about traditional instruments.

What sort of traditional instruments do you like listening to?

For me, at this very moment:

Nice! When I was at music college, we had a drum workshop with some Tabla players, it was a lot of fun, and a cool glimpse into the music of the east smile.gif

Sitar gives me peace. I would love to get one in the future. Thanks for sharing this videos mate.
Cosmin Lupu
The pleasure is all mine mate - I feel drawn towards more acoustic instruments lately rather than the electric ones and probably this is one good reason why I felt like sharing these smile.gif

As much as most people hate them, I really like bagpipes! There's something just awesome about them!

I also really like Hurdy Gurdies (that seems to be the english name for them) I've seen them quite often in my travels to Hungary and beyond.
Again, there's something just cool about them!
Seems as though I have a thing for drone instruments!

But is saying all that, these arent instruments I could listen to a lot, not really a relaxing sound. Though I do want a Hurdy Gurdy! biggrin.gif

Drone instruments are so cool, aren't they? Sithar and bagpipes enter the same category, don't they? biggrin.gif Have you seen this thread mate?

Yeah, there's something about that droning!
I missed this thread, Its pretty interesting!
Very impressive to be able to play what you hear like that. Must be a lot of work, but well worth it!
