Is it one of those self-tuning, self-regulating gurdies that applies its own cotton and rosin? If so, I'd very much like to own one.

That continuous pitch comes from drone strings.

How do you make it do the background rythm? It just seemed to start on its own. I'd like to know more about this awesome instrument!

That thing looks and sounds like the bastard offspring of an orgy involving a violin, a keyboard, a meat grinder, and a bagpipe.

Thanks and congratulations for your video. Greeting from Galiza, my nation, my nation, in the far western Europe, northwest of the Iberian Penísula. Here are the traditional instruments bagpipes and hurdy gurdy. Thank you.

It's brilliant to see these older instruments on a revival. If the french make historical films the sometimes use hurdy gurdys for background music. Anyone who's seen The Return of Martin Guerre (the idea behind Sommersby) will see a beautiful illustration of the H-G played. Thanks to everyone for the renaissance

I find hurdy-gurdy music (in the Dutch language it is called: 'draailier' - I am from Holland) amazing and beautiful, it sounds like magic. I have this question: how is the rythm sound created? Do you press something in a certain rythm or does the instrument create this by itself (I mean: does the turning wheel inside create this raspy sound)? Thank you in advance for your information!

Not really, just turn the crank and press the buttons.

Don't know the name of the piece. Heard it in Seattle at a HG festival.
