Abstract: This is a methodical means on how to learn to play the kankles in the way Western Aukstaiciai and Zemaiciai traditionally play. Kankles and the playing of the kankles and their music, handed down from generation to generation, have reached modern times in sufficiently authentic. In the Western Aukštaitija and in Žemaitija (Lowlands), the purpose of kankles and its music had been different. This instrument was used for playing everywhere and for various occasions: at weddings, funerals, church, harvest festivals, May dances etc. Three types of this instrument are known in entire area where kankles are existing which are situated in the geographic zones stretched from the south to the northeast. According to the classification of the traditional kankles by R.Apanavicius, kankles of Western Aukštaiciai and of Žemaičiai (Lowlanders) are attributed to the second type. They are distinguished from the first type by a much bigger body, having a flat bottom (sometimes six sides), sharper carving of the thick end, and a larger number of strings. The carving of the resonance hole of kankles with a rectangular thin end is usually oval. Their body is made higher and has a rougher appearance. The traditional number of strings is 9 to 12, but can also have 8 to 14 strings. Kankles is painted black, dark grey or brown, and the top flat panel is usually a little bit brighter. Players of West Aukštaitija and Žemaitija used four or five left hand fingers to play 9-or-12-stringed kankles. Fingers were laid on every second chord and moved up and down (to silence the chords). The second finger (with its fingernail) of the right hand or a plectrum (special wooden piece) was used to pluck the strings the outward direction (sometimes inwards)
