There are several methods of playing the balalaika, with the most common being the strum. Strumming is the playing method used with most music. Unlike playing the guitar, you do not strum the balalaika over the center of the soundboard. The soundboard of the balalaika is a relatively soft un-finished wood. Strumming over the center of the soundboard would disfigure the soundboard. The balalaika is strummed high on the soundboard near the neck.
