X:1 T:Lost Goose N:From the playing of Eck Robertson (1887-1975, Borger, Texas) M:C L:1/8 R:Listening piece Q:"Very Quick" N:The piece is imitative of a goose honking--the 'd' to 'g' interval inthe 2nd and N:sixth measures is the 'honk', especially if a little too much pressure is put on the N:bow on the 'g' note, so that it scratches just a bit. The harmonics in the 1st, 2nd, N:5th and 5th measures are played on the 'G' string, 1st position, with the 'd' harmonic N:produced with the 4th finger, and the 'g' harmonic with the 3rd finger where the 'C' N:note usually is.
