A short explanation about Baglama;
The baglama is a stringed musical instrument shared by various cultures in the Eastern Mediterranean, Near East, and Central Asia regions.
A baglama has three main parts, the bowl, made from mulberry wood or juniper, beech, spruce or walnut, the spruce sounding board and a neck of beech or juniper. The tuning pegs are known as burgu (literally screw). Frets are tied to the sap with fishing line, which allows them to be adjusted. The bağlama is usually played with a tezene (similar to a guitar pick) made from cherrywood bark or plastic.
The musical scale of the baglama differs from that of many western instruments - such as the guitar - in that, like many other non-western lute instruments, it is based on just intonation rather than equally tempered intervals. This gives a truer harmony at the expense of the number of keys playable without retuning.
