The sitar belongs to the stinged instruments. May be that should be stringed instruments. You could also say plucked string instruments.
A sitar is a stringed instrument, originating from the seventhcentury. Typically, a sitar is about four feet in length.
The sitar's curved frets are movable, allowing fine tuning, and raised so thatsympathetic strings ( tarb , also known as "taarif" or "tarafdaar") can run underneath them. A sitar can have 21, 22, or 23 strings, among them six or seven played strings which run over the frets: the Gandhaar-pancham s…itar (used by Vilayat Khan and his disciples) has six playable strings, whereas the Kharaj-pancham sitar, used in the Maihar gharana ,to which Pt. Ravi Shankar belongs, has seven. Three of these (or four on a Kharaj-pancham sitar), called the chikaari , simply provide a drone : the rest are used to play the melody , though the first string (baajtaar) is most used. The instrument has two bridges ; the large bridge ( badaa goraa ) for the playing and drone strings and the small bridge ( chota goraa ) for the sympathetic strings. Its timbre results from the way the strings interact with the wide, sloping bridge. As a string reverberates its length changes slightly as its edge touches the bridge, promoting the creation of overtones and giving the sound its distinctive tone. The maintenance of this specific tone by shaping the bridge is called jawari . Many musicians rely on instrument makers to adjust this. Materials used in construction include teak wood or tun wood ( Cedrela tuna ), which is a variation of mahogany, for the neck and faceplate (tabli), and gourds for the kaddu (the main resonating chamber). The instrument's bridges are made of deer horn, ebony, or very occasionally from camel bone. Synthetic material is now common as well. The sitar may have a secondary resonator, the tumbaa , near the top of its hollow neck. uning depends on the sitarist's school or style, tradition and each artist's personal preference. Generally, the main playing string is tuned to the tonic (approximately B#/C - D#/Eb), called Sa or vaad and the drone strings both to that tone and to the samvaad or second note, which is usually the perfect fifth. The sympathetic strings are tuned to the notes of the raga being played: although there is slight stylistic variance as to the order of these, typically they are tuned: . I Sa= C, . VII Ni= B, . I Sa= C, . II Re= D, . III Ga= E, . IV Ma= F, . V Pa= G, . V Pa= G, . VI Dha= A, . VI Ni= B, . I Sa= C, . II Re= D, . III Ga= E, (the last three in the upper octave). The player should re-tune for each raga. Strings are tuned by tuning pegs, and the main playing strings can be fine-tuned by sliding a bead threaded on each string just below the bridge. . Chikari strings: Sa (high), Sa (middle), and Pa. . Kharaj (bass) strings: Sa (low) and Pa (low). . Jod and baaj strings, Sa and Ma. In a "Gandhar Pancham" (Imdadkhani, school of Vilayat Khan) sitar, the bass or kharaj strings are removed and are replaced by a fourth chikari which is tuned to Ga. By playing the chikari strings with this tuning, one produces a chord (Sa, Sa, Pa, Ga). To tune the sympathetic strings to raga Kafi for example: I Sa, vii ni (lower case denotes flat ( komal ) I Sa, II Re, iii ga, III Ga ( Shuddh or natural, in Kafi the third is different ascending and descending), iv ma, V Pa, VI Dha, vii ni, I Sa, II Re, iii ga. However, there is a lot of stylistic variance within these tunings. ( Full Answer )

A Sitar can have from 18 to 20 strings. Only the strings that goacross the frets are played. This would mean that only about 8strings on the sitar are played at any one time.
I am a sitar player, and the way we play sitar is by sitting down, and putting one leg over the other and balancing the sitar on the leg that is slanted. We can't look at the frets on the sitar; we can only hear them, which makes it even harder. The sitar isn't that heavy, but sitting down for long… periods of time can hurt while balancing an object on your leg. ( Full Answer )
The sitar is played by strumming or plucking its stings with a wire "pick" called a mizrab. Getting into detail, you hold the instrument while sitting with your legs crossed. You ballance the main tumba (body) between your foot and your knee. When playing, you usually strum with a "pulse" or raga. …This pulse is continuous and allows the sympathetic or resonating strings to constantly play. A note is played by positioning your finger on one of the curved frets and strumming the string your finger is pressing. The curvature of the frets allows the sitarist to pull the strings downward making a unique effect. ( Full Answer )

Chickens will sit on a ceramic egg. They have no way to tell that the egg is bad.. See link below for this definition:. Nest egg. The allusion is to putting a real or china egg into a hen's nest to encourage her to lay. The connection between this and the 'savings' meaning isn't exactly clear. It… may be that the idea was that the egg that was put into the nest could be later retrieved, after the hen had laid. ( Full Answer )

A sitar is a melodic instrument, played in and around India; it produces droning sounds as well as played notes, and is essential to much Indian classical music. Guitars originated in Western Europe, notably in Spain. Both instrument names descend from the same root as "zither". Indian music featur…ing sitars became a fad during the 1960s, and many guitarists tried playing them, or hired sitarists to play on records. George Harrison took lessons with Ravi Shankar, and played sitar on Beatles records, and his own Wonderwall Music . Robbie Van Leeuwen played one on some of his Shocking Blue records. A "sitar guitar" was developed, that played like a guitar but had resonating strings and a sitar-like drone. Steve Miller rescued one from a parts barrel in the mid-1970s, put it back together, and played it on "Wild Mountain Honey" from his Fly Like an Eagle album. ( Full Answer )
The length of time it takes to make a sitar depends entirely on the complexity of the instrument you've designed, your existing skill in sitar-making, and how many hours a week you can devote to designing and building the instrument. Building a proper sitar in the traditional fashion may take days …to weeks, even for a master. It is a labor-intensive, highly detail-oriented craft based on time-tested techniques. If you are new to the art, you ay be able to make a sitar on your own, but years of practice and apprenticeship are the only way to truly master the craft. ( Full Answer )

Under relativity, you cannot. From your reference frame you appear to be standing still but from another person's you might appear to be moving. According to Einstein, there is no way to tell who is correct, in part because neither is "correct". Both reference frames are equally valid. This is one o…f the most fundamental principles of special relativity (along with the fact that the speed of light is constant) ( Full Answer )

Perhaps the chicken didn't understand that the egg was infertile. I would recommend you take the chicken to a therapist as it could have grief issues. If this doesn't help you may want to consider adding a duck or goose egg to the nest. This could ensure a pleasant surprise for the hen.
Probably because the seat next to you was vacant and you did not smell bad or look frightening to her. There is a slight possibility that she thought you may be someone pleasant to make conversation with.
