BEST GUQIN COLLECTION FOR YOU
Playing the Guqin requires more skills. Unlike the Guzheng and Pipa, the strings need to be plucked hard, which will damage the nails. The sound of fake nails is not natural enough, so your nails are the first choice. The length of your nails should be about 3-4mm from your fingertips.
Generally, the nails of your right hand are longer than your left hand. There are also some protection methods for your nails.

Attach the tuner to the peg, careful not to touch the strings. (The tuning pegs are under the head of the Guqin. )
Pluck the thickest string until the tuner displays C1 (the tuner will turn green when the tune is correct).
When the pointer of the tuner is on the left, it indicates that the current tone is low and the strings need to be tightened counterclockwise. Twist clockwise to loosen the strings.
The intonations of the second string to the seventh string are D2, F3, G4, A5, C6, D7.
The Guzheng is similar to another ancient Chinese musical instrument, the Guqin. The most significant difference between them is that the Guzheng has about 21 movable bridges under the strings, while the Guqin does not.
Is Guqin easier than Guzheng?
Although Guqin has fewer strings than Guzheng, it requires more playing skills. When playing the Guqin, the right hand plucks the strings, and the left-hand controls the strings by pressing, tapping, and other techniques. So Guqin is more complicated and hard to learn than Guzheng.
