Watch and learn

Pretty impressive, eh?

I'm not really sure of the provenance of this music - I heard an Oud player in Tunisia once using a few similar moves and techniques, and of course, there's the fabulous Anouar Brahem with a less flamboyant percussive technique, but I don't know as much about arabic music as I'd like and I'm not sure if this even draws anything directly from it. Here's Anouar though - for reference.

I did have a post up here pointing to another bit of percussive guitar playing a while ago and I've just enjoyed the videos again, so if you have a bit of time to kill, do have a look?
