In the music describing the galloping horse in the grassland, there are often passages that simulate the neighing of horses, such as "War Horse Galloping", "Riding on a Thousand Miles of Grassland", "New Herdsmen on the Grassland" and so on. There are two ways to simulate the neighing of a horse: one is the double-string trembling method. The playing method is: put the middle finger of the right hand on the outside of the bow, and hook the bow rod together with the index finger to make the bow rod rub against the outer string, and at the same time use the ring finger to hook inward. The bow hair is rubbed against the inner string to play the double strings; or the middle finger and ring finger are bent, and the bow hair is pressed downward (toward the direction of the piano barrel), and the bow hair is pressed into a flat shape so that it can rub the inside and outside at the same time. Two strings, in order to play two strings, these two playing methods are chosen by the player.

Erhu neighing skills

When playing, use the right hand to play the double strings, the left hand is in the extremely high position, and the first and third fingers are used to make the third-degree tremolo glissando. The following should be noted in this method: 1. The bow hair should be attached to the string, and the pronunciation should be slightly noisy; ② The left hand should not be too fast and the amplitude should not be too large. The fingers can also shake up and down quickly while the left hand is shaking. This method is generally used to simulate the neighing of horses. The other is the continuous sliding method of the inner string. The playing method is: the second or third finger of the left hand slides from the high position to a very high pitch, the middle finger and ring finger of the right hand tightly hook the bow hair, stick to the inner string, and slide the left hand from the middle bow to the bow at the same time. Point; then the left hand makes a small glissando, and the right hand cooperates with the fast continuous bow of the inner string to push the bow. When playing, pay attention to the need to keep the right arm in a relatively tense state, and the bow hair must be close to the strings, so as to make a "grid, grid, grid..." noise, so as to play a realistic effect, this method is usually used to simulate The neigh of a single horse. In the music, these two playing methods can be used alone or in combination, and the stage performance effect is very good.

Anyone who studies Erhu knows that rosin is an essential auxiliary material for playing erhu. In modern erhu, rosin is applied to the bow to increase the friction of the bow hair, increase the friction on the strings, so that the erhu makes a normal sound, basically, if the rosin is not properly applied, the friction of the erhu bow on the strings is usually slippery and difficult to make a sound, so it can be said that the auxiliary material of rosin is crucial for the erhu.
