I am a new HG player. Followed by Cecilia’s and Scott’s advice I have ordered my first Hurdy Gurdy from Neil Brook, who has a high reputation of a quality HG maker. I wanted something small , but with a pick up and fine tuning for band environment.
My basic Baldrick model has 2 melody strings, 2 drowns and one ‘buzz’ string ( still need to learn proper terminology!) . The pegheads are designed to look traditional, but with ability to fine tuning- a must feature for this temperamental instrument! Six months in a waiting list and I became a proud member of HG community! The problem is…now I have to learn to play it!! But I’m feeling positive and hope to be able to produce some melody in a near future. Any advice on learning resources will help!
Thanks a lot and see you soon!
