Hello everyone. I fell in love with Guzheng about a year and a half ago and decided that I was going to buy one. So it's here and I do not have any clue what I am doing with it. I can only speak and read english (uh-oh, the music book I bought is in chinese) I have already followed some of Yukina's posts and tuned it and got it sounding good (I think). I even bought the same tuner. I think that I can get the music notation. I just don't understand what all of the symbols mean. I already have the sheet that someone posted on the forum. The stuff I don't understand: a horizontal zig-zag below da-cuo. the dot above or beside a number, a number above a number, the line, or double line beneath notes.

Also, since I am new, is it better to start with picks, or not, keep in mind I am a nail biter. (I know it's bad, and I should have grown out of that by now.) Thanks for all of your help so far and any you can provide me in the future.
Keith
