The guzheng, or gu zheng (Chinese: 古筝; pinyin: gǔzhēng) or zheng
(筝) (gu- means "ancient") is a traditional Chinese musical
instrument. It belongs to the zither family of string
The guzheng is the parent instrument of the Japanese koto, the
Korean gayageum, and the Vietnamese đàn tranh.
A modern guzhengThe guzheng should not to be confused with the
guqin, another ancient Chinese zither but without bridges.
The modern-day guzheng is a plucked, half-tube zither with movable
bridges and 21 strings, although it can have anywhere from 15 to 25
strings (a customized version exists with more than 34 strings).
The guzheng's strings were formerly made of twisted silk, though by
the 20th century most players used metal strings (generally steel
for the high strings and copper-wound steel for the bass strings).
Since the mid-20th century most performers use steel strings
flatwound with nylon.
The guzheng has a large resonant cavity made from wu tong wood
(Paulownia tomentosa). Other components may be made from other
woods, usually for structural and decorative purposes.
The guzheng has existed since the Warring States Period and became
especially popular during the Qin dynasty. The ancient guzheng had
12 strings, which gradually evolved into it current forms.
Until 1961, the common guzheng had 18 strings. In 1961 Xu Zhengao
together with Wang Xunzhi introduced the first 21-string guzheng
after two years of research and development. In 1961, they also
invented the "S-shaped" left string rest, which was quickly adopted
by all guzheng makers and is still used today, whether in the shape
of the letter "S", "C", etc. The 21-string zheng is the most
commonly used, but some traditional musicians still use the
16-string, especially along the southeastern coastal provinces of
China and in Taiwan.
The guzheng is tuned to a pentatonic scale, the 16-string zheng is
tuned to give three complete octaves, while the 21-string zheng has
four complete octaves.
Playing styles and performers
There are many techniques used in the playing of the guzheng,
including basic plucking actions (right or both hands) at the right
portion and pressing actions at the left portion (by the left hand
to produce pitch ornamentations and vibrato) as well as tremolo
(right hand). These techniques of playing the guzheng can create
sounds that can evoke the sense of a cascading waterfall, thunder
and even the scenic countryside. Plucking is done mainly by the
right hand with four plectra (picks) attached to the fingers.
Advanced players may use picks attached to the fingers of both
hands. Ancient picks were made of ivory and later also from
The guzheng's pentatonic scale is tuned to Do, Re, Mi, So and La,
but Fa and Ti can also be produced by pressing the strings to the
left of the bridges. Well known pieces for the instrument include
Yu Zhou Chang Wan (Singing at night on fishing boat), Gao Shan Liu
Shui (High mountains flowing water) and Han Gong Qiu Yue (Han
palace autumn moon).
Two broad playing styles (schools) can be identified as Northern
and Southern, although many traditional regional styles still
exist. The Northern styles is associated with Henan and Shandong
while the Southern style is with the Chaozhou and Hakka regions of
eastern Guangdong. Both Gao Shan Liu Shui (High mountains flowing
water) and Han Gong Qiu Yue (Han palace autumn moon) are from the
Shandong school, while Han ya xi shui (Winter Crows Playing in the
Water) and Chu shui lian (Lotus Blossoms Emerging from the Water)
are major pieces of the Chaozhou and Hakka repertories
Important players and teachers in the 20th century include; Wang
Xunzhi (1899–1972) who popularized the Wulin zheng school centred
in Hangzhou in Zhejiang, Lou Shuhua rearranged a traditional
guzheng piece and named it Yu zhou chang wan, Liang Tsai-Ping
(1911-2000) edited the first guzheng teaching manual Nizheng pu in
1938, Cao Dongfu (1898–1970) from Henan, Gao Zicheng (1918- ) and
Zhao Yuzhai (1924- ) from Shandong; Su Wenxian (1907–71), Guo Ying
(1914- ) and Lin Maogen (1929- ) from Chaozhou, the Hakka Luo
Jiuxiang (1902–78), and Cao Zheng (1920-1998) who trained in the
Many new pieces have been composed since the 1950s which used new
playing techniques such as the playing of harmony and counterpoint
by the left hand. Pieces in this new style include Qing feng nian
(Celebrating the Harvest, Zhao Yuzhai, 1955), Zhan tai feng
(Fighting the Typhoon, Wang Changyuan, 1965) and the guzheng
concerto "Miluo River Fantasia" (Li Huanzhi, 1984). Contemporary
experimental atonal pieces have been composed since the
The guzheng in other genres
The guzheng has been used by the Chinese performer Wang Yong (王勇)
in the rock band of Cui Jian, as well as in free improvised music.
Zhang Yan used it in a jazz context, performing and recording with
Asian American jazz bandleader Jon Jang. Other zheng players who
perform in non-traditional styles include Randy Raine-Reusch, Mei
Han, Zi Lan Liao, Levi Chen, Andreas Vollenweider, Jaron Lanier,
Mike Hovancsek, and David Sait. The American composer Lou Harrison
(1917–2003) played and composed for the instrument. Jerusalem based
multi-instrumentalist Bradley Fish is the most widely recorded
artist of loops for the guzheng. Fish is known for using the
guzheng with a rock-influenced style and electronic effects on his
1996 collaboration "The Aquarium Conspiracy" with Sugarcubes/Björk
drummer Sigtryggur Baldursson. The virtual band Gorillaz used the
guzheng in their song "Hong Kong" from the Help: A Day In The Life
compilation. The Canadian composer Kevin Austin has written
several pieces for guzheng and electroacoustic sounds.
