Bouzouki or Guitar bouzouki
Hello, I’m a guitarist accompanying Irish music. I want to start learning Irish bouzouki so I’m in the process of searching an instrument.
I have several question regarding the instrument:
- Should I buy an Irish (flat back) bouzouki or should I buy a Guitar bouzouki? I know John Doyle plays the latter.
- Should I equip the instrument with octave strings on the 3rd and 4th string or put unison strings?
Any other advice would be greatly appreciated
