Playing Guzheng
written by Ingo Stoevesandt

“Drowning in sound” is a main kind of feeling while playing the Guzheng. The deep and powerful bass, the charming sound of the plucked high strings and the endurance of the chords are hypnotizing the player as well as the listener. Compared to other zithers of Asia, the Guzheng overwhelmes most of all with its powerfull sound. The big size of the instrument (about 1.60 meter long) does not only give a good resonance, it also amplifies each touch, scratch or unwanted slide on the strings and keeps every sound under a long sustain.
