    I like this Erhu, a Chinese violin. We have picked up some hot licks from what they play on this thing. Basically uses a string bridged on a snakeskin resonator. Mostly, I hear it playing a sad song. But sometimes it plays a happy song. Interesting huh ? Some people ask what is that kazoo thing they play ? Oh no, not even a kazoo, it is the Erhu. And I like it.

    I think this must be the most emotional squeeze from an instrument I have heard. This Yu-Xiao Guang guy is pretty good with it. Check the intro out. It is sad, this entire cd can be a real tear jerker, especially when appropriate.
