The gourd flute and flute are a good time for Achang youth to talk about love and find lifelong partners during the slack season or various festivals and gatherings every year, as well as the usual labor. Whenever this time, no matter where the young men go, they will stick the March Xiao at the back of the neck in the collar, or pin it at the waist. 

No matter in the village, next to the village, or on the way to the street, as long as you meet a girl you love, you will play the music that you can listen to, and ask the girl to stop for a while, and then come up to chat and ask the girl's famous name. If the girl is still out of love at this time, and consciously knows each other, she will respond skillfully. The young man understood and offered to send the girl home, but the girl replied, "If you want to send it, you have to send it to Zhaizitou, and you can't send it halfway." So the young man happily played the flute, sang folk songs, and accompanied the girl home, pure and innocent. love begins here.

The legend of cucurbit

Whenever the sun goes down, the young men, after dinner, are busy washing and decorating, they quietly come to the house of their beloved girl, play the gourd flute, and use beautiful tunes to entice their sweethearts to come out to meet. The girl was flustered when she heard this kind and familiar tune, and hurried back to her room to dress up. Then go out for an excuse to have a tryst with a lover. If it is the first visit, the girl's sister-in-law or mother will open the door warmly and invite the young man to sit down by the fire in the house, and the family will avoid it. So the young man and the girl sat by the fire pit affectionately facing each other, or sang love songs duet, or whispered, lingering love words, and broke up reluctantly until the rooster announced the dawn.
Throughout the ages, I do not know how many young people in Achang have used this magical gourd flute to attract beautiful girls and become friends with Qin and Jin.
