Topic: liu qin

does anyone know anything about a chinese instrument called 'liu qin'. it is a smaller version of the 'pipa' and is a four string version of the western lute. if anyone knows where to find some info on tuning/chords/etc. it would be greatly appreciated. most of the info on this instrument is in chinese but i would really like to figure out how to play the one i have.

Re: liu qin

Here is a link to a Wikipedia article that might answer your questions.  There are also some links at the bottom of the article to sound files and other sites that might be helpful.
