Matt Woodbury/Mimosa Playing harmonics on the fiddle? (29) RE: Playing harmonics on the fiddle? 06 Mar 01

It's been years since I did this piece, but it seems to me that the A harmonic is to be played by touching the the A string lightly at the octave (you could do it with a fourth finger extension), and the D is played by touching the A string the same way where you would normally finger the D in first position. (isn't the symbol over the D a diamond, and different from the A harmonic?)

Like I said, it's been years, and I don't think I could still do it from memory, but try that and see if it sounds right.
