俠女彈琴記 Lady (Superwoman) Style (tentative translation); silk strings, metal strings

俠女彈琴 - a serial fiction/reality story/book
episode 1::

I heard of a "俠女彈琴" style
I like it, I like it.
Just the name already is good.
No more, this or that sadness type of guqin songs.
Rather, the Tang style, 俠女 could avenge injustice, in the middle of the night, she takes her sabre/epee and runs after those sleazy no good enemies, make them tremble with fear - or even she comes back with a chopped off head or two, etc. 

This is "feminist" before such a term was necessary to take place.  Its rather, women just like men, they settle the score too - not in a hidden stealth/sneaky way - but here I come, dont mess with me, because I will come after you if you irked me enough.
