Oodles of Oods

This instrument, my friends, is called an Oud or Aoud.....pronounced "ood".  Don't you just love that name??
a musical instrument of the Middle East and northern Africa belonging to the lute family.
All of you who know Evan, know that he is obsessed with all things musical and plays many different instruments.  Today, Brad signed him up for Oud lessons.  He'll go for an hour and a half once a week until summer.  He is beyond excited!  Now we begin shopping for a reasonably priced one.

If you want to know what one sounds like, go here:

Hopefully I can post a video of him playing in a few weeks!

Looks like an instrument they have on Robin Hood.....the animated version! And does sound like harem music! Haha. Go Evan!!
