Cheng Yujian 成玉

Cheng Yujian1 (Song dynasty) is credited with at least two important qin documents

  1. Finger Techiques (指法 Zhi Fa)
    An explanation of finger techniques, included in Qinshu Daquan, Folio 8 (Qinqu Jicheng, V/157-160).
    These finger technique explanations include an unusually large amount of commentary.

  2. Qin Essay (琴論 Qin Lun)
    A lengthy essay included in Qinshu Daquan, Folio 10 (Qinqu Jicheng, V/206-8);
    This essay is discussed in QSCB, Chapter 6c7 as well as in Chapter 6b3

As yet, no further information.2

 
Footnotes (Shorthand references are explained on a separate page)

1. Cheng Yujian 成玉磵
Cheng Yujian (11820.xxx; this jian is not in my computer) apparently lived during 1111-1117, but there seems to be no information about him other what may be in the two surviving essays mentioned here. (Return)

2. There is a brief quote from his Zhi Fa in Wang Shixiang's article on Guangling San. (Return)
