I am currently working on Stravinsky's Firebird Suite and I have the sheet music for the 1919 "Re-Orchestrated" version. There is one particular section that neither I nor my private lesson teacher know how to play. The section begins in the fourth measure of the fourth line in the "Suite de L'Oiseau de Feu" (the first movement), one measure after #3, measure #14. If anyone speaks French, you might be able to help me here as well. Below this line it says "Glissez sur la II. corde", followed by an asterisk and at the bottom of the page next to a corresponding asterisk, it says "En L'effleurant du doigt, les sons harmoniques notes se rroduiront [could also say "aroduiront," but I don't think so] alors automatiquement." My private lesson teacher thinks you have to play the passage by using artificial harmonics, but he isn't sure. If anyone has any answers or suggestions about this, including pointers on how to play artificial harmonics, please let me know. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I've figured out what the French means, but I still need help making sense of it all. If I understand correctly, it says to "slide on the D string," as well as "The touching of the finger, harmonic sounds notes are reduced then automatically." If anyone knows exactly what this means, please let me know. Once again, I would also appreciate any tips on how to play artificial harmonics if that is indeed what must be done in this passage. Thanks!

Cheapguitar, must you advertise merchandise under the same topic as me? Start your own topic, please. Your post does not relate in any way to this discussion.
