A few words about the instrument ....

Bouzouki is a laurel stringed folk musical instrument, with a pearl resonator (elbow) made of elongated wooden strips, the curtains, and a long arm, arm or hose with keys to the edge for tuning. Along the arm there are thin metal plates, perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the arm, which are wedged in a thin slot and are called knots. The intervals between the trusses define the distance of the stitch.

The modern bouzouki features three or four double strings that the musician hits with a small button on the pen. Initially, the bouzouki brought three pairs of metal strings tinted in PE-LA-PE tones (there are also reports of seven-string or eight-string tri-band bouzouki again in PE-LA-PE tuning, except that the bass PE and sometimes the LA consisted of 3 strings), while later he got fourth pair and tuning NTO-FA-LA-PE (again per pair). Previously, the tunes changed according to the music road (macam) of the performed melody. These ways were preserved until the interwar period and were gradually lost, ultimately with the prevalence of the tetrachord.
