Stringed instruments vary from harps to basses, violins to folk fiddles, and guitars of all shapes. Some are plucked, and others bowed. The earliest stringed instruments, ancient lyres, were found in Mesopotamia. Throughout history, different countries had their own take on how the instruments look and sound, and how they are played.
