Zither and Chinese Zither - Guzheng

Hi everyone, during my journey from page to page inside internet then suddenly I meet this two music instrument. It looks like a guitar but it has lots of string. The music instrument is Zither and Chinese Zither called Guzheng (Goo-Zheng). When I see people play it look easy to play but it is not that easy hehe.. lol haha what I am talking about easy but not that easy..hehehe k.. learning to play guitar also talk time and how about this with so many string.

Zheng or Guzheng is ancient Chinese musical instrument based on the documents written in Qin dynasty (before 206 BC). “Gu” stands for “ancient”. Zheng is the forerunner of Japanese koto, Korean kayugum, Mongolian yatag and Vietnamese. The Guzheng become popular instrument since ancient times.

Next is Zither, it is also musical string instrument, which can found this in Slovenia, Austria, Hungary, the southern region of Germany, alpine Europe and East Asian cultures. The term "citre" is also used more broadly, to describe the entire family of stringed instruments in which the strings do not extend beyond the sounding box.



Here is some tutorial from Lotte about how to play this Zither. She is really good in playing this.. So nice..watch this
