        you missed your chance to fill your video with your own music of playing the hurdy gurdy. that'd been a nice touch. to be reminded how the instrument sounded here and there throughout the video. oh well

            Well done. My only disappointment is that you didn't mention Jimmy Page playing one at the beginning of 'The Song Remains the Same' movie.

                  What a silly thing and queer noise... Like a demented morbid funeral version of the barrel organ.

                    Schubert wrote a lieder about the liererman who played the hurdyy gurdy and the piece has a drone like piano accompaniment with a solemn melody.

                          In Hungary it's called "tekerőlant", which is literally "cranked lute", and it's one of the peculiar instruments of Hungarian folk music that barely survived to modern times, but is gaining some new traction now among both the folk music and general tradition revivalist scene.

                            I never thought I would have watched a 32.29 minute video on Hurdy Gurdys about 32.29 minutes ago.

                                                    Kinda ironic how only poor people/beggars would play the Hurdy Gurdy but these days they sell for over a grand. I just want to earn a few silvers on the streets

Back when the site was the wild with no rules. You could find gore, porn, or full episodes of family guy. You never knew what rabbit hole you'd fall down

Some topics I have almost no interest in and know nothing about, but the way it's presented and the format you use always seems to catch my attention. Thank you, and please keep creating!
