I am listening to Bouzouki music. Just about the sweetest sounding instrument in the world. I loved this song as a kid.

They're part of the mandoline family of instruments, sound similar, a pair of strings for each note. 3 or 4 pair (two types, kinda like some bass guitars are 4 string and some are 5 string). They are used with a variety of tunings.

Another instrument I love is the Erhu (Chinese violin): »en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erhu

These cats play some unique instruments, Wayne Shorter on reeds (I've seen him play a twin tube contraption), and Joe Zawinul, who plays Sythesizers, he used to suspend one upside down and play it and one under it, at the same time. They are former Weather Report collegues...

McLaughlin played in Shakti, an acoustic guitar modified with drone strings like a citar.
