Zhongruan aka Chinese Guitar

The Zhongruan is often likened to the guitar, due to similarities in sound and playing method. Nevertheless, the zhongruan actually possesses a richer, fuller tone as compared to its Western counterpart. It is capable of techniques such as such as slides and tremolos as well.
