How Do Stringed Instruments Make Sound?


Stringed instruments make sound through the vibration of the strings. The vibration can be created through plucking the strings using fingers, bowing or striking. The pitch of the sound produced by the vibrations can be controlled by varying the thickness, tension and length of the strings.
