According to legend, the instrument itself has a history stretching back 5 millenia, and it has appeared in Chinese records from 3,000 years ago.<br /> <br /> As an instrument of great elegance and refinement, the guqin has been associated with Chinese literati and high culture (Confucius was noted to have played it). In days gone by, learning to play the guqin was considered an art that every educated man must achieve. Sadly, few master players remain, though its use in the 2008 Beijing Olympics' opening ceremony has helped to spark interest and elevate its status once again.<br /> <br /> This was originally shared on <a href="http://studymorechinese.com/video">Study More Chinese Videos</a><br /> <br /> You may also be interested in:<br /> <a href="http://studymorechinese.com/video/guy-playing-the-sanxian-and-singing-a-traditional-poem">Guy playing the sanxian (三弦) and singing a traditional poem</a><br /> <a href="http://studymorechinese.com/video/chinese-violin-erhu-horse">Chinese Violin Erhu "Horse Racing"</a><br /> <a href="http://studymorechinese.com/group/daily-chinese-sentence/forum/topics/how-to-talk-about-musical-instruments-in-chinese-photo-and-dicuss">How to talk about "musical instruments" in Chinese - photo and dicussion of 乐器 yuè qì</a><br /> <a href="http://studymorechinese.com/forum/topics/chinese-musical-instruments">Chinese Musical Instruments 中国乐器</a>
