Overview

The Armenian Duduk: A complete guide is probably one of the few books in English that covers all you need to know, to be able to play this elusive and exotically haunting instrument. The book goes over the fundamental basics of the instrument, how to hold it, proper hand technique, and gives exercises to help develop the beginner into being able to play basic pieces. The book then moves onto the techniques used, including sluring, vibrato, and the Shake lip trills.
The book also includes intermediate Duduk pieces transcibed, including "Hovern Engan", "Siretsi Yaris Daran (the tune that was used in the "Gladiator" soundtrack), as well as some Mughamat Solos. The later chapters of the book cover the modal systems used, including Mugham and Maqam. The Mughamat system is explained in detail, and each mode is analysed and presented in their forms for study. The appendix section contains useful information on how to read music, Circular breathing, online resources, Duduk maintenance, as well as fingering charts.
The book also covers the notation system used for Duduk, and is all you need to get started playing the Armenian Duduk.
