I bought myself a balalaika and started to play with it. As I watched my first video here:it tells that I have to use my index finger for stroking it.
But that is the only video or explaination I saw that is telling to use the index finger. The others all seem to use their thumb but I am unsure mybe it just looks like that.
Can anybody tell me how it is done properly?
Also the guy who sold it to me told me to tune it to H-E-A. But everywhere I look it says E-E-A.
What is the right tuning?
