    These are wonderful, Kevin!

    Quite seriously, make up a set of them, perhaps?

    Much enjoyed!

    Kevin,

    Terrific Middle Eastern belly-dancing music! You really made the Strad dance.

    I agree with David that a set of these would be a good idea.

    Keep up the great work.

    I wonder what Menuhin would have said about this.
    I am sure, it would have been a very positive answer, as he admired Grapelli.
    Nice start of the Saturday morning...... really, looking forward to get my own Strad.....

    Really great!
    If I may dare just a little suggestion for this "oriental" playing.. try adding a little rapid movement of the pitchbend wheel occasionally (to "glide" up to the first note of a phrase once in a while , and sometimes just "flick" the pitchbend wheel upwards (and then let it spring back to central position) right after the start of a note.

    Really cool pieces kekuja!

    I enjoyed listening to the strad in a different musical setting.

    thank you all for your kind words

    gary>I agree with David that a set of these would be a good idea.

    i have done so in the past, when playing live for dancers.
    each dancer gets a few minutes and the music must
    have at least 3 tempo changes. so the length of each piece
    ends up at about a prelude's amount of time.

    i would play acoustic clarinet, flutes and e-keyboard.
    the strad songs are a rendering of this material.

    however i am attempting to get away from playing
    mid east music per se. i'm intending to add elements of it
    to western art music (ala borodin, or say, late romantic
    incorporation of folk songs into art music).

    i would post such work to this forum but i bought
    vienna opus (VSL) and i don't think i will have a GPO only
    composition in the future.

    good ear.

    i did that with the synth oud
    and also do so playing live, but hesitated with the strad
    because using it is still new to me.
