To cause the strings on a stringed instrument to vibrate by picking or pulling them with fingers or a pick. This is a common means of playing the guitar and similar instruments but also applied to the violin family (pizzicato) and, on occassion, the piano. The harpsichord is also a plucked instrument although it is plucked by a jack rather than the finger.
