Musical Post for the Holiday Season

Published December 7th, 2011

Here’s a little off-topic, but on-season, post for you this week.

Some of you may know that one of my hobbies is music and a passion for exotic instruments. I thought I’d share a little of that as a sort of holiday spirit kind of thing, so here’s a little music file for you. I’m playing an oud, a middle eastern lute played with a plectrum, in an improvisation that hasn’t quite stabilized into a composition. This just seemed cheerful enough for some good holiday vibes so I hope you enjoy it!
