Handmade Traditional Xinjiang Uyghur Ghijek / Violin
The Ghijek is a special instrument unique to the Uyghur. It is a "spiked fiddle", meaning it is meant to be played upright, rather than horizontally like a western fiddle. It has four strings and a short neck, making it similar to a modern violin. To play the Ghijek, place the head on your leg, the neck in your left hand, and hold the bow with your right. If you are familiar with playing a violin, playing the Ghijek should come easily.
