    The guy is wired! Hahah. Love it. Apparently he does as well. You've got to in order to play like that, eh? What is that, a balalaika? 6 strings? Couldn't quite make it out at that level of visual detail.

    How fun. Thanks!

    This video proves that with such old Russian traditional insturment as balalika, which has only 3 strings (sometimes 3 double strings), one can create a real miracle. He says that he plays a balalika made in 1928.
    Alexei Arkhipovskiy gives balalika modern sound (like an electric guitar has). Anyway he's a virtuoso.

    Listen how traditional balalika performance sounds

    Very interesting, thanks for sharing! Balalaika is quite a versatile instrument, I had the luck of meeting many skilled players. My russian is still not very good so my wife helped me understanding the spoken parts in the video too Great skills indeed, but please let's not disturb my beloved Paganini

    I do enjoy this version of Monti's masterpiece http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hh9-D6W3Sy4 quite more than Архиповский 's video though :P
