Continuing the discussion from Sierra Hull Mandolin Technique:
A comment I made in the Sierra Hull thread got me thinking about other plectrum instruments. The mandolin is probably the closest there is to guitar technique, but there are a few other, slightly less known instruments that also use picks. Particularly the Sarod and the Oud.
My question is, 1. would the Code team be interested in exploring some of these, or are they simply too niche and not relevant and 2. would the viewers be interested in it? I’d be interested to hear everyones thoughts.
The sarod maestro, Amjad Ali Khan
and some Oud. I know MUCH less about this type of music (though I actually do have an oud, but no idea how it works) still picked, looks like mostly down strokes!
