In Fun

When I was about 6 or 7 years my dad bought an instrument that he hasn't played in a while. This instrument usually has 10, 11, or 13 strings and it is called an “oud,”. The Oud originated in Persia and played by many Arabians around the world.  The Oud sounds like a guitar but yet again it all depends on how you adjust it.  He was a little rusty but I’ve always enjoyed listening to him play it.  Over time he got better learned more songs and every night before we slept he always played it and I love every single beat of it. After a while I  was eager to learn and just like every little kid it's just a phase but it wasn't really what I wanted to do.  Till this day he still plays it and I still enjoy hearing the nice deep noise coming from the strums of the strings.
