G is for…

Guitar, glass harmonica, gamelan, glockenspiel all give good sounds.  A guitar may have six or twelve strings, unless it is a bass guitar, which has four or sometimes five or even six strings.

A glass harmonica is something of a novelty relying on different lengths of resonating tubes.  A gamelan orchestra is from Bali and a glockenspiel is a percussion instrument.  Earlier this year I saw a photograph taken at a celebration of the Chinese New Year.  The instrument in the photograph was a gu zheng or Chinese harp.
