Guzheng - Chinese Zither

The guzheng is a long, boxed zither, that is one of the most popular Chinese instruments amongst the uninitiated. It is not to be confused with the seven stringed guqin - the zheng is a reformed instrument with a long history, and is commonly used today as a solo instrument.

Capable of producing beautiful glissandos amongst other things, this is an instrument that makes for easy listening - and is one of the easiest Chinese instruments for learners.
