3 Strings

Trying the Tibetan Guitar

One of the most exciting things about being in a multicultural organization is that everyday is a you’ll discover a lot of new things about your new found friends and their respective home countries. And today, ‘I tried a Tibetan Guitar. It also has 6 strings, but they are grouped into 3’s, so  technically only 3 strings work together to form its distinct tone. The body of the guitar is very small, very light, it also has this shape that could rest well on your lap when seated. The guitar has no frets, but Penpa (our Tibetan friend, and co-member in our multicultural choir) said that it could play the chords that a  common guitar can. It has its own charm, complex, and mysterious.
