League of Peja

The League of Peja known as Besa-Besë between Albanians, was an Albanian political organization established in 1899 in the city of İpek, Kosovo Vilayet, Ottoman Empire. It was led by Haxhi Zeka, a former member of the League of Prizren, shared the same aim of achieving an autonomous Albanian vilayet within the Ottoman Empire; this organization was encouraged and supported by Austria-Hungary and directed against Ottoman reforms and against Serbs from Kosovo Vilayet. Albanian patriotic circles had been seeing a need of creating a new organisation, similar to the first League of Prizren, to include all the Albanian lands and place it in front of a national movement; the first efforts for the creation of the League began in September 1896. Haxhi Zeka was named as head of this movement by the most influential Albanian leaders in the Ottoman province of Kosovo. Albanian leaders led by Haxhi Zeka organised a meeting in Yakova in March–April 1897 as a first step for the creation of the league. There were two groups of members.

The first group of conservative and more moderate members wanted five vilayets to be united into the Albanian vilayet, the second group of the more radical members wanted full administrative autonomy for the four vilayets united in the Albanian vilayet. The League ended its activity in 1900 after an armed conflict with the Ottoman forces. Zeka was assassinated by a Serbian agent Adem Zajmi in 1902. Selim Rusi

When an open-note C-string is struck, its harmonic sequence begins with the notes; this overtone-series tuning was modified by Mick Ralphs, who used a high C rather than the high G for "Can't Get Enough" on Bad Company. Ralphs said, "It needs the open C to have that ring," and "it never sounds right in standard tuning".

Russian-guitar Open G: The tuning of the Russian guitarD-G-B-D-G-B-D is an open G tuning in major thirds; the following open-tunings use a minor third, give a minor chord with open strings. To avoid the cumbersome designation "open D minor", "open C minor", such tunings are sometimes called "cross-note tunings"; the term expresses the fact that, compared to Major chord open tunings, by fretting the lowered string at the first fret, it is possible to produce a major chord easily. Cross-note or open E-minor was used by Skip James. Cross-note tunings include: Cross-note A: E-A-E-A-C-E Alternative: E-A-C-E-A-E Cross-note C: C-G-C-G-C-E♭ C-C-G-C-E♭-G, a cross-note overtones tuning C-C-G-C-E♭-A♭ a cross-note overtones tuning that facilitates seventh chords.
