So yes. This is a hello thread. I've been here a few days, and I'll probably end up looking mainly at technique threads, closely followed by completely forgetting the technique advice I'll have read.

Anyway, yes. I recently bought a guzheng (I would have aquired one two years earlier if I'd realised I could find them in Canterbury, after being given the chance to play one for five minutes during my few months teaching english in China before I started uni). I'll admit that Guzheng isn't likely to become my "main" instrument, as I generally play bass guitar and limited keyboards, but it is one which I very much love the sound of (especially having recently become interested in chinese music, as well as the usual progressive rock which I usually listen to) and do intend to use in the recording project I have with a friend at uni (who similarly takes up an obscene number of instruments for the reasoning of "I had something I thought a banjo would be nice on".

Anyway, yes. This forum looks like a nice place and quite interesting, so I thought I would join. If you made it this far through my chatter, thanks. I probably should buy a book on Guzheng playing, too. (I've been playing mine a lot for the last five days and I love it, although for the first two hours I couldn't remember which way round it was meant to go, so I was playing it backwards...)

Hehe, thanks. The music was lovely (although, my wallet might not be on the same page), but yes, I've been playing it each night before sleeping, and it really makes me feel calm. Thanks.
