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
Lighter than a real guzheng
I love being able to play the guzheng anytime, anywhere without carrying around that super heavy instrument.
Audiobus and/or IAA support broken?
Great sounding with a nice interface, but unfortunately it falls short due to the limitations stated in the title. This app is more a novelty than a useful iOS instrument due to the fact that there’s no way to get its signal into Auria or a similar recording app; please fix.
Beautiful beautiful beautiful...
This app is so clear and feels like you are actually playing with the instrument just from your phone!!
