Just to add a little more info to those who might have got mislead by my earlier post that Piano is not a stringed instrument like Violin.
Technically, Piano is also a stringed instrument.

 

No, technically speaking Piano is NOT a string instrument. A piano is a percussion instrument. Hammers that are operated by levers attached to the keys of the piano strike the strings in a piano (which resembles a harp laying on its side). That makes it a percussion instrument.

 

A string instrument is usually played by plucking the string or by gliding a bow across the string(s). Fingers or some objects are used to modulate the sound.

Chorus has nothing to do w/ mukhda. Not all songs have chorus, in fact most don't. As I said earlier, mukhda is the opening para that is repeated between antara's. Mukhda is a.k.a. refrain.

Zapman,

So Santoor would also fall under Percussion instead of string instrument right?

 

Yes, you are correct. Like a piano, santoor is also a percussion instrument.

Zapmanji, I am not so sure about the Santoor being a percussion instrument. By another definition, a percussion instrument is used for the rythym, while the Santoor plays the main melody.

Pt. Shiv Kumar Sharma adapted the Santoor to classical. Now he plays meends and gamaks by a combination of gliding and striking movements.

So that makes it a? Confused

 

All percussion instrument are not rhythm instruments, and vice versa. Maraccas, cabaas, etc. are commonly used side-rhythm instruments, but aren't played by striking something.

 

I agree w/ you, Pt. Shiv Kumar Sharma has introduced some variations in playing the santoor - of late, he often plucks the strings for special effects.

 

There are 2 separate, unrelated ways to categorize instruments:

1. Percussion, String, Wind

2. Melodic, Rhythm etc.

 

But mine isn't an absolute word, there are different schools of thought. This is just one of them, that's all.
