Is Oud harder than guitar?

We do not recommend using oud as a guitar in most situations. It offers better tones, but is not as musical.

Do I need to tune the guitar to play music with it?

No, you can tune it to the Oud scale on the guitar and use that for most of the music you intend to play, and Oud will always work within the confines of the guitar as well as the Oud scale.

MELBOURNE (Reuters) – Australia’s carbon tax could be cut in coming months, if the government decides it has to, and a “significant” reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by mid-century, Finance Minister Mathias Cormann told parliament on Tuesday.

“When you look at the costs to the economy you will start to see a number of benefits,” said Foreign Minister Julie Bishop, who has been pushing for an international carbon price deal. “If you had a global price, this could really reduce costs for consumers and businesses in Australia.”

She said a cap-and-trade price of A$40 a tonne of carbon in 2020 – the carbon price set by Australia at the Paris agreement in 2015 – would generate a carbon reduction equivalent to taking 2 million cars off the road, while a universal tax would generate a 5 percent carbon reduction with a value of roughly A$10 billion in economic benefits.

But she said any reduction after 2020 would be dependent on the government’s policies, and that the government still had to assess each sector and ensure its emissions were not increased on a large scale.

“As my right hon. Friend knows, the government takes a very determined view that this issue of carbon pollution must be addressed seriously,” she told the House of Representatives. “There needs to be more research into how the world is going to deal with the issue and how we may reduce the emissions impact of Australia and
