She has a piano, and you know, I strum a little. I have a song there, a genuine Russian one: 'I shed hot tears.'
У ней клавикорды стоят; я ведь, ты знаешь, бренчу маленько; у меня там одна песенка есть, русская, настоящая: "Зальюсь слезьми горючими..."

“Hang it all!” Lyamshin swore, and sitting down to the piano, began strumming a valse, banging on the keys almost with his fists, at random.
- Э, чорт! - выругался Лямшин, сел за фортепиано и начал барабанить вальс, зря и чуть не кулаками стуча по клавишам.

Suddenly she rushed and opened a little, old, out-of-tune piano that was in the room, and began strumming on it and singing.
Вдруг она бросилась и раскрыла маленькое, старенькое расстроенное фортепьяно, бывшее в комнате, забренчала и запела...

A Raw Youth
Dostoevsky, Fyodor
With breast bared, he sat on a bench, and singing in a thick voice a street song to a dance-tune, he lazily fingered and strummed on the strings of a guitar.
С обнаженной грудью сидел он на лавке и, напевая осиплым голосом какую-то плясовую, уличную песню, лениво перебирал и щипал струны гитары.

“Again!” cried Lyamshin, “I've strummed enough for you.”
- Опять! - крикнул Лямшин; - довольно я вам барабанил.

Thus passed the second hour, while the guitar was strummed or the gramophone gave out the contents of the album of light music into the twilight to which they had again accustomed their vision.
И вот истек второй час, в течение которого то звенела гитара, то граммофон посылал легкие мелодии в эту комнату, к полумраку которой присутствующие опять кое-как приноровились.

She was even quite a little lady, up to reading, embroidery, chattering, and strumming on the piano.
Была она уже настоящей барышней, весьма ученой: читала, вышивала, умела болтать и бренчала на фортепьяно.

He is tremendously enchanted by this man because he is ... IN A ROUGH FUR COAT WITH A ROPE ROUND HIS WAIST, SINGING AS HE STRUMMED A LUTE.
Его восхитил этот человек. ... в одном тулупе, перепоясанном веревкой, поющего и играющего на лютне.
