About two years ago I picked up, on a whim, an erhu. For those unfamiliar with the instrument, it’s most easily described as the Chinese two-string violin. The mechanics behind how the instrument works is pretty different than a violin, but the actual method of playing it is pretty much the same. I didn’t know much about it myself when I bought one (lots of Amazon gifts cards can create situations like this) so of course I hit up youTube hoping to find some videos of them being played. Of course I found lots, and one of my favorites has been this cover of “Unravel,” the opening theme to the anime Tokyo Ghoul.
