I am curious to know what these 3 sounds, produced by a fiddle, are called:

Sound 1

Sound 2

Sound 3

  • In non-technical terms, how is sound 2 being produced? Mar 23, 2018 at 8:43
  • I can't play them :( Mar 23, 2018 at 13:58
  • When you click on a link, in upper right corner there is an arrow pointing down, when you click on that it gets downloaded, its just a wav file.

1 Answer 1

  1. Ricochet or Flying Spiccato bowing with a harmonic note at the end.

  2. Tapping / Knocking on the wood of the violin, probably with a knuckle from the bow hand.

  3. Heavy Staccato or Marcato, stopping the bow on the string.
