    OK, this is getting overwhelming.

    I think I'll just stick to my original plan. All I need for that now is a Baritone.

    But wait! You need one of these:



    Actually I have never seen one before and it is fascinating.

    Got the new tenor in the mail today. It sounds really good. If you want to hear it in action, take a look at my new thread.

    Hurdy-gurdy

    I have seen and heard them play many time......try one hooked up to a pick up with some sampling, looping, pedals and amplified of course.

    I have not heard one play on the same stage with an ukulele.......

    Would sure be an interesting mix....

    I'm sure there are musicians out there who could make it happen..

    I rather like the sound of the Hurdy-gurdy....

    Also, it looks like Christies has/had for sale for about $1000 the hurdy-gurdy that Spencer Tracy pretended to play in Captains Courageous, "... now in a major state of disrepair ..." I assume the quote means it's junk to most people and a movie collectable to others.

    Default Hurdy Gurdy Man

    I haven't thought about this song for years.

    Hurdy Gurdy Man

    By Donovan P. Leitch

    Thrown like a star in my vast sleep
    I opened my eyes to take a peek
    To find that I was by the sea
    Gazing with tranquility

    'Twas then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man
    Came singing songs of love
    Then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man
    Came singing songs of love

    "Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy gurdy" he sang
    "Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy gurdy" he sang
    "Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy gurdy" he sang

    Histories of ages past
    Unenlightened shadows cast
    Down through all eternity
    The crying of humanity

    'Tis then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man
    Comes singing songs of love
    Then when the Hurdy Gurdy Man
    Comes singing songs of love

    "Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy gurdy" he sang
    "Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurd
    Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy gurdy" he sang
    "Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy gurdy" he sang

    Here comes the Roly Poly Man
    He's singing songs of love
    "Roly poly, roly poly, holy poly poly" he sang
    "Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy gurdy" he sang
    "Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy gurdy" he sang
    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
    You can learn by reading, but you don’t begin to know until you begin to try to do.

    There is a great deal of complexity to the construction of a hurdy-gurdy, and the sound is quite unique (and often seems rather strange to untutored ears). The instrument is an integral part of traditional French music commonly found in Quebec (Canada). Some of my all-time favorite bands feature excellent hurdy-gurdy players. If you’re curious, check out the music of La Bottine Souriante or Le Vent du Nord.
