Istanbul has a long history and a diverse set of musical cultures, which include Anatolian folk music and Ottoman Turkish urban music. With thousands of guitars in Turkey, it was only a matter of time until somebody found a way to play guitar music in the appropriate local tunings using frets.

Tolgahan Çoğulu shares his experience playing microtonal guitar and curating a repertoire for this instrument. Listen to find out how to easily play microtonal music on a standard guitar using mini-frets, Tolgahan’s experience with King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, how tablature is written, and how he is hoping to fly past the moon!
