What is Guzheng?
Guzheng is a stringed instrument plucked with plectra attached to four fingers of one or both hands by tape. Traditional playing styles use the right hand to pluck notes and the left hand to change the pitch and produce vibrato by pressing the strings. Modern styles or advanced players use both hands to strike notes.
You will need bring your own finger pick (plectra) and tape for the class.
You can purchase plectras on this website.
