What is THIS!
Something I found in the violin book of a musical I'm playing at the moment.

Hi guys,

I found this in the violin book of The Addams Family:

Can anyone explain what this means?

Here's a "hint" - I'll leave you to solve it - and a quote:  the famous glissandi natural harmonics in the score Stravinsky's Firebird are all found on which string?

By the way - welcome to the forum - introduce yourself to us all !

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

Thanks Guys,

I understood the sul G and the natural harmonics, but I just wasn't sure whether to go up and down or just continue going up.

I'll look up the Firebird properly at some point

Up and down, just like Stravinsky's Firebird.
