BEST ERHU COLLECTION FOR YOU
Choose a chair of moderate height and sit with your legs flat and naturally apart. Keep the upper body straight. Put the erhu on the left leg, close to the lower abdomen. The left hand holds the erhu. The left arm is naturally bent, the elbow should not be raised too high, and it should form a 45-degree angle with the side of the body.
When holding the bow in the right hand, the index finger feels lifted, the thumb is pressed down, and the middle finger is hooked inward when pulling the outer string. Therefore, holding a bow with fingers is generally summed up as "lifting, pressing, topping, and hooking."
The bow and the strings form a right angle. The further the bow root is away from the barrel, the greater the force, and the closer the bow is to the barrel, the force will gradually weaken so that the force of the bow is even.

1. Approximate tuning
Use the A sound (440H) of a small group of small characters as the standard sound, the 5S sound in the D key.
Then, according to your judgment of the bottom of the outer string, slightly and slowly rotate the erhu of the outer peg. While listening to the sound of the erhu, slowly tune the outer string to the same tone as the standard tone the pitch.
Select the model of the electronic tuner as "erhu tuning mode," put it near the erhu barrel, and then pull the slow bow of the outer strings with relatively uniform strength and observe the tuning while pulling the strings. When the pointer is between 0 and -50, the red light is on, indicating that the sound is low; when the pointer is between 0 and +50, the red light is on, showing that the sound is high; when the pointer is in the middle of 0, and the green light is on, it is in the correct tune.

Is erhu harder than the violin?
First of all, in terms of the number of strings, the erhu has two strings, while the violin has four strings, so the erhu can only play a simple fifth chord, while the violin has a variety of chords. Secondly, the bowing and fingering skills of the erhu are more straightforward than those of the violin. In the end, the erhu uses simple notation, while the violin uses the staff. So learning the erhu is more accessible than learning the violin.
