Chinese Plucked-string Music

The Zheng and the Qin are plucked strings instruments played like a zither. Here are some other fine string instruments played like a guitar. The Liuqin with four strings and 24 frets has a colorful and distinctive tone quality and is also used for solo performances. The Pipa is the leading instrument of the Chinese plucked strings instrumental group. Having been developed for 2000 years today it has four strings and 19 to 26 bamboo frets. The Ruan is a short neck Chinese lute with a round resonance body and four strings, played by a plectron or imitated nails. The Yueqin is developed from the Ruan, with a similar full moon shape but with a shorter neck. Sanxian, a long neck lute, is a three strings instrument with a skin membrane stretched over the resonator.
