Lesson Excerpt

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.
