i just got an oud off ebay . it wasn't being bid on
It's nice to see the interest in the Oud!  My son
brought one back for me from Morocco last month
and I've been trying to learn some scales at least.
It has 6 courses tuned as follows:
D-GG-AA-DD-GG-CC which is the Syrian tuning as
opposed to full-step-higher the Turkish tuning, I 
Don't have a good source for a risha yet either,
although there are several Internet sources and
plans for making one out of bamboo.
I found CDs by Tariq Banzi and by Simon Shaheen to
provide some interesting ideas about how to play.
