*simple for others - working two octaves up on the low string,
taking it down from there - on the high string it's up a fourth
again with the fcf'c' tuning
*then playing around with the tonalities and trying not to slip
up - not to repeat too much - watch the glissandos bringing it
all back in tune - not too many of them
*a form of (acoustic) shape-riding, watching watching control -
almost slipping up - not quite - the sonority of the viola
takes care of that - trying not to cheat either
