To produce music, one may either pluck ({pang}) or strum ({yach}, which also means "stroke" or "pet") the strings. The tone produced is varied by touching the string or strings at various points while plucking or strumming. The verb used for this, perhaps translatable as to finger, is the same as the one used for wind instruments: {Heng}.
