Thank you Stafanos, for sending us your perspective on this complex instrument. The physics are constant, but every culture has a different way to use it. The Greek approach stretches my experience, and I'm fascinated. // Windy in USA

Hi windydankoff from Syros Island [near Mykonos] the capital of Cyclades Iskands, Greece.
Thanks for your kind words!
I am newer on this instrument and of course it is an Oehler one, as most Greek musicians play it, for popular music, especialy on weddings.... and outside Fairs.
The reason I am going to upload 4-6 video,  is to show the many modes except major and minor! Some of them are:
Hitzaz, ousak[phrygian],  pastorale or Nikriz, island minor and Niavent & harmonic minor together[it is the mode of the 1st melody of this video].
Also for Rempetiko (Zempekiko of 9/8 signature not the 9/8 of the West!)

Hope to discuss again!

I look forward to joining you on modal adventures through the islands! I hope my Boehm system clarinets will speak your language. (One of them is a G)
