i expressed some interest in obtaining and giving a go at the Er Hu recently. my father somehow managed to contact an old friend that was willing to give away his old Er Hu.

just thought i'd share this with GG&A, please enjoy


edit: for those of you that don't know what it is:

BAHAHAHA nice! My grandparents have one of those!

It's a stringed traditional Chinese instrument. It's similar to the violin. Actually don't quote me on any of this. I barely know about the Er Hu myself! But it's very interesting to see one of these in a NGD!!

EDIT: how could i forget? HNEHD!

lol right up next to the RR

HNGD, do you play or are you just starting with it?


yeah i just started an hour ago. so obviously, no clipzzz until at least a month from now

i'm having trouble doing do-re-mi-fa-so. the lack of frets means i have to summon up all my years of musical experience with guitars and basses in ordered to actually learn that on my own.

Nice guitar, Yngwie.


you'd be disappointed to know that it's neither fender nor squier.

just a copy. a copy that i've spent time modding over the years.

Hey dude HNGD!

now, what RR is that?


It looks like a Douglas copy.

HNEHD! lol

I love the music you make with those. I never heard one in a rock song (IDK, maybe there are some asian bands that use them) but it would be sick to hear a guitar and erhu duel.

it's a korean copy. check my profile to see the brand.

HNGD dude...

I'm not big into Chinese traditional music, but damn I'll be well impressed if you can work that into a rock song.

For those who are interested in a band that uses it in their music, look up Chthonic, they use it on the song "Blooming Blades" from their 2009 album Mirror of Retribution.
