The string family is made up of numerous instruments. Some of these are the violin, harp, banjo, pedal steel guitar, and mandolin. Instruments in the string family make sound when their strings vibrate. There are three ways to cause strings to vibrate: plucking, bowing, and striking.
This is a picture of a violin. The violin has an hourglass shape. Sound is made by drawing a bow across the strings or by plucking the strings. A violin is sometimes called a fiddle.
