Sinfonye Hurdy Gurdy

Postby CassWheatley » Tue Sep 19, 2017 10:26 pm

Hi Folks
I have bought a hurdy gurdy for my Hubby for Christmas..... I was wondering what tuning to use please, and what the strings are..
There are 3 strings on this gurdy and 1 row of keys.

If I sit with it on my lap, handle in my right hand, I'm guessing the melody string is the one in the middle, the one that the keys hit to produce a melody.... then there is 1 above it and 1 below it....my question is, what do I tune them too..... xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

TIA

Hi there -
Ive alerted this forum to some of my facebook friends who might know more and hopefully someone can help!

(I myself play bowed strings like medieval fiddle/rebec)
