Hi everyone,Some answers:-the Qanun and the Santur are not the same instrument. the Santur is Hammered and the Qanun is Plucked.-Qanun is a type of Zither, same family.-I've started with an improvisation, ant then played a popular song called "Ishrab Kasak"-Most of Qanun players wear horn plectrums, I prefer using my nails.Thank you, and if you got more questions you can email me: qanunji@gmail.com
