Yoko demonstrates some of the techniques of playing the Koto. The strings are plucked with three picks, called plectrums, which are attached to the thumb and first two fingers. The pitch of the Koto is determined by the placement of the bridge or oji.
The Koto must be tuned for the key of each piece of music. There are no frets like a guitar. Yoko demonstrates pitch variation, including Hikiiro, Atooshi, and Oshihanashi. She also demonstrates Zuzu, Syu, Walen, Tsukiro, Utsu, Chirashi, Tremolo, Arpeggio and Glissandi.
