Shetland Gue/2 Stringed Bowed Lyre/Jouhikko Sound Sample #2 with Viola...

Updated plans now available, This is an easy to build Bowed Lyre that I will feature on a YouTube video series in 2014
New Gue plans also included in the latest edition of my Lyre making CD-ROM
In this video I demonstrate how standard G and D Viola strings can be used on this instrument to help beginners play or for a different clearer kind of sound,  Its cleaner to play and finger and has a clearer sound.(I am not a bowed instrument player but this demo gives an idea)
