Hmm...I don't think I understand what you mean. I suspect it might be the way they use the mordent on a longer note...sometimes I think it sounds like they play it "twice" but really all they did was lift a finger and replace it.

One of my Bulgarian friends here who plays gadulka keeps telling me to make my fingers more "percussive" so that I wouldn't have to tongue as much...I'm still working on that one!

Other musicians: Yuri Yunakov (sax player with Ivo) has 3 cds out, Yasko Argirov has a good cd, Petko Radev is another, and then there's Georgi Koev, who recorded about 50 years ago and is one of the first to make a name in Bulgaria on clarinet...

The scales for improv/taxim are typically modes related to Greek/Turkish modes which are drawn from Arabic modes. The most common one I use is called hejaz, and is this:
D Eb F# G A Bb C D

That's the concert pitch I usually end up playing it in, but it can be transposed too.
