Yueqin originated from Ruan, and then gradually changed. In the Qing Dynasty, Yueqin was completely different from Ruan. Compared with Ruan, Yueqin was simplified and slightly smaller in size. Yueqin has a sharp and high-range sound, and is often used for solo, instrumental ensemble, or to accompany song and dance, opera, and rap music.
