Guzheng is a Chinese plucked zither that has a history dated back to 500 B.C. It is rich in playing techniques. The performer plucks the strings with his right-hand fingernails, while his left-hand fingers apply pressure to the strings to execute vibratos, slides, other embellishments and occasional plucking techniques.

Ratings and Reviews
This app is definitely worth $2.99. It has many accurate-sounding playing techniques and is the best Guzheng app out there. Plus you can record your own songs, as well as listen to some songs and learn how to play them! It even includes instructions on playing techniques. I only wish it had more songs and a landscape mode option. Great stuff! One of my best/favorite apps.
So much fun!
You can quickly start enjoying this app. I like the fact that you can select a key signature and it will quickly set the "strings" for that key. Also like that it has a slider to select different octaves of the instrument. The demo songs are very helpful.
Beautiful but with a big problem
I love this app. I really do. I have spent hours on it. I would give it five stars, but Yao-Zhi pops more often than not. Hard to record something worth sharing with that issue. I would give it 5 stars otherwise.
