Erhu Duet

erhu_duet click to make big and see the captured “score” thanks to FFT math.

I used my newly made Erhu to play a decidedly non-Chinese drone duet. I marked out a scale I made up by ear with a marker and used a capo to clamp a $5 piezo pickup to the fingerboard. I’m assuming that its a good bet this is a just intonation something or other. I hope you like it. Now… I’m thinking of making a version that I can ebow. I have an inkling that may be pretty slick.
