Bartok Pizzicato


                                                              notation for Bartok Pizz

Bartok pizzicato, or snap pizzicato, is produced in two ways. The first way is to place the forefinger of the right hand underneath the string an pulling upwards and releasing so that the string snaps against the fingerboard. The other way is to pinch the string pulling vertically upwards and releasing creating the snap against the fingerboard. The second technique creates a sharper attack sound.

  2. After years of wandering through the wilderness, desperately trying to forage for food, I arrived here. My salvation; my holy grail. Never before have I felt the euphoria of basking in the light of a Bartok Pizzicato. This is the closest I've ever felt to God and his glorious vision. Thank you, and may you rest among the disciples of the Lord.
