Chen Zhuo
- Qin Shi #137
陳拙 1
琴史 #137 2

Chen Zhuo, literary name Daqiao, was a famous qin player at the end of the Tang dynasty. He is particularly important for his explanations of finger techniques. The biography of Chen's qin teacher Sun Xiyu says Sun refused to teach Guangling San to Chen, burning the tablature so Chen couldn't learn it himself.

Chen Zhuo is discussed in Xu Jian's Outline History, Chapter 5. A. (pp.57-8).

His finger techniques are discussed in Qinshu Daquan, Folio 8.

Qinshu Cunmu credits him with four books:

  1. 琴籍,九卷 Qin Ji
  2. 大唐正聲新扯琴譜,十卷 Datang Zhengsheng Xinche Qinpu
  3. 補新徵音,一卷 Buxin Zhiyin
  4. 琴法數勾剔譜 Qin Fa Shu Gouti Pu

In addition, Shilin Guangji quotes an essay called, Qin Talk by Military Official Chen Zhuo.

Further details in preparation.
