My YouTube Zouk Player

Three Drunken Maidens

I learned this song from an old Planxty recording. Thought I could play it, too. Here's a part of my version. I will publish the pdf with chords soon.

Time for a laugh

Here's a silly crazy hi speed version of Pink Floyd's Brain Damage played on Octave Mandolin. Not to be meant too serious, I think.


Here's Chocolate Jesus by Tom Waits

Kri - Du rosende morgon

Kri comes from Sweden and plays octave mandolin.

Here she plays an own song called "En Bergkristall". The title translates "A rock-crystal" and tells the story of a father urging his son to get an heir. But his wishes are not fulfilled as the son loves someone other than his wife, someone his father doesn't approve of. I like this one very much.



This own song means "You rosy morning".

Ragtime Bouzouki: Maple Leaf Rag

Maple Leaf Rag by Scott Joplin played on a zouk.

ZoukFest 2007 Raffle Bouzouki #4

Seems there is another Zoukfest Raffle. Here Roger Landes plays the G.D. Armstrong solid-body electric bouzouki. If you ever wanted to play your zouk like Hendrix never did, here you go.
