Guzheng, Guqin

The guqin is the earliest known Chinese instrument, dating back roughly 3000 years, and it is said that Confucius himself was a master guqin player. It has for a long time been considered in China the pinnacle of refinement and learning. The guzheng has evolved away from and alongside the guqin over time; the guqin in its modern form has 7 strings, 3 up from the original 4, whereas the guzheng has evolved to the point where it now has 21 (16, 18 and 26 string versions are also available).

In the western world the closest equivalent is the zither, which also has strings raised above a flat sounding board and is played on it’s back, but these have dropped out of widespread use, which makes the guqin and guzheng even more special and unique. Both instruments sound somewhere between an acoustic guitar and a harp, due to the strings, although they are both so distinct that this hardly does them justice.

In China the guqin and guzheng are enjoying a resurgence, and the guzheng is now the most popular traditional instrument in China. The reasons for this are many, but their popularity was given a boost by Chinese pop stars using them in their music: Cui Jian, Xie Tianxiao and Jay Chou have all used the guzheng in their compositions. It has also become in recent years the most important single instrument for Chinese composers. Our store has many examples for you to check out.

Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
