Chinese New Year Greetings 拜年

Since CNY is coming, I would love to wish all my readers a very Happy Chinese New Year with a piece on the Gu Zheng. The best part is, I even got my student to play it for you guys.

Bai Nian (拜年) means CNY greetings and this is an overplayed song during the chinese new year!

Sorry for the short clip as she is playing this song for the very first time that night during our usual music class.





This video is also on the same song but played by me. Enjoy!

Hi Love

Your skill is superb.

May i offer some suggestions:

1) this is on youtube, it is better you have a nice background setting to video record it. Like using a light color big cloth for your background with some subdued lighting.

2) Maybe you should wear a cheongsam to bring out more of your own chinese personality.

3) have a slight smile - your countenance is too serious.

Then you will be numero uno for the ku zheng.

good luck to you

Uncle Arthur
