As a novice stringed instrument musician, I have got to appreciate this - eastern version of dueling banjos. Even though they are not banjo's or ukuleles, still good musicainship - not too shabby for 3 strings.

Enormous tuning pegs aside, pretty unique instruments and fast playing...impressive.

Tired old cliche or no, I love duelling banjos. It's a tune everyone can join in and have a laugh with.

My band's version includes ukulele and saxophone. Maybe we should add in some more exotic instruments! :D

I was wondering the same thing. Looks like an ice scraper you would use on your windshield LOL!

That "pick" does look like an ice scraper! Also, no frets? And some kind of sling thingy between first finger and thumb on left hand? Pretty amazing stuff.

The "ice scraper" is called a bachi.

I imagine the 'sling thing' is to help the hand slide over the neck. I rigged something like that up to help me when I was playing my electric guitar. Stage lights are frickin HOT.

No frets. I am impressed.
