Click here to watch the playing of Jew's harp Chords

As the world's intangible cultural heritage, Yi's oral string is known as the lightest musical instrument in the world. The oral string technology is on the verge of being lost and worth collecting. At the same time, the emotional connotation contained in Yi's oral string is also a good gift for loved ones. As Liangshan is an economically underdeveloped area, the mouth string is made by traditional technology, original tools and pure manual production. The copper may be slightly blackened after being put for a long time, and the hand-made string pieces can not be perfect and exquisite in details.

Liangshan Yi's oral string is a pure folk musical instrument of Yi nationality. The production technology of oral string is on the verge of being lost, and it has not been widely promoted to the classroom. Therefore, there are no music scores, tutorials and special teaching videos. As the technique of playing the chord is mainly used in the matching fingering of breath, tongue and mouth shape in the mouth, it is not easy to express in words and can not be demonstrated. The buyer needs to practice and ponder patiently. The key is to understand the impact of the changes of lip, tongue and breath on the overtone of the chord. For hundreds of thousands of years, almost every young man and woman in Liangshan Yi region has played the chords very well, so it's not difficult.

Basic methods of vocal String Performance:
The Yi nationality's oral string is a high-frequency pan musical instrument combining playing and plucking. The strength of plucking, the change of air absorption, the size of air flow, the change of mouth shape and the bending and spreading of tongue determine the effect of overtone and amplification. But the pitch doesn't change. Fingering is mainly to move back and forth with your thumb. The complex and fast-paced melody uses the index finger and middle finger. There is still some difficulty. When playing the oral string, the left thumb and index finger clamp the string handle, fold the face towards the lip to make it fan-shaped, place the reed tongue in front of the two lips, and cooperate with the breath and mouth shape. The breath is a slight air flow. Use the extension and mouth shape of the tongue to cooperate, control the breath in and out gently, and use the right thumb to move the top of the oral string back and forth to cause the reed tongue to vibrate, so as to make a bright Ding Dong sound. The performer uses his lips to protrude slightly forward in a barrel shape to increase resonance, expand the volume, and change different timbres by means of mouth exchange and breath control. Skilled players can express more complex rhythms and more timbres, and make each string produce its pure fourth and fifth overtones. Listen while playing, because the skills are mainly in the mouth, there is no way to demonstrate, and the words are not easy to express accurately. You have to practice and understand more by yourself. Using different playing methods, it can not only give out the lingering sound, but also give out a rough sound.
