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
Making it, listening to it, words, music sheets, making instruments

Let me know if I can help. I would think all three strings would be tuned to D. The chanterelle (melody) one would be D above middle C and the Trompette (rhythm string (physically on top) would be the same so that you make chords as you play. Then the bass drone (The Bourdon, physically underneath) would be D an octave below the other two. Good luck Damian Clarke www.damianclarke.co.uk
