Hurdy Gurdy

The Hurdy Gurdy is a fascinating medieval musical instrument. You play the Hurdy Gurdy by turning a crank which spins a wheel. The wheel acts like a violin bow and vibrates the strings. You play melodies by pressing keys which change the note of the melody strings. There are also two drone strings that don't change pitch which makes the Hurdy Gurdy sound similar to bagpipes.
