you are doing a great think Ramzi


Thanks Florian. Just trying to help people out. It's a huge responsibility though, because I'm always afraid of teaching something that might not be 100% correct. I guess it's better to try and teach though (I mean, I'm not a total idiot, but not an expert either), at least something will get out there. If I make a mistake and someone corrects me, I'll learn, and post a corrected version of the video. I guess it can't be that bad overall...

Cheers mate!

I will have NONE of this. You have to choose: either Maha, or El Rumbero. I think we all know what the sound choice is.

"Foxy Lady" - hmmm.... I guess there's no "civilized" way of saying that. The word "Shalkha" might work, but I don't recommend using it when talking to an actual foxy lady. Perhaps just use it if you see said lady and you want to express your feelings to the buddies you are hanging out with at the time.

Hey Ramzi,

I think your videos are great, I also agree with Richard..

I can understand what you are saying(I think) even if i dont speak arabic, And you also use alot of time explaining and showing, wich i think is really good, especially for beginners, so its easier for them to get a grip on it.

What I find best of all though, is that you are making an efford to share and spread some of your knowledge, and still being humble about it too, thats great..

Maybe I can pick up some arabic from these videos too

Theoretically the people who started the site composed it. To me, it sounds like a watered down version of "More than words" by Extreme.

Hi Ramzy, amazing videos. I myself studied Arabic in college as a Major, here in Granada, and have been lucky enough to visit Beirut 4 years a go. Had a great time, loved it!
Let me tell you that your videos are great, you can learn arabic and flamenco at the same time!!!!
Mabruk, ya fannan!

That's great to know, Pingaloka! I'm glad you enjoyed the videos. If only I knew you were here, we would have jammed.

Pretty good Romb, but you really need some tighter pants and longer hair.

Some gold jewlery wouldnt be a bad idea either.

All of that is doable, except for the longer hair... Unless I play it like Ron.

Ramzi,

Wow! That's a lot of rumba vids. Every Arabic guitarist is going to be a Rumbero
