Hoagie Carmichael’s SKYLARK on Etherwacve Pro with assistance from an actual skylark.
I played this little Elizabethan (Jacobian?) ditty using a variety of articulation techniques, but especially to demonstrate the utility of a fanning motion with the fingers across the edge of the volume loop field to achieve a crisp plucked sound (when that seems desirable.) Listen especially to the first note and to the leading notes of the first few little phrases.
Shouldn’t this technique become a standard for theremin players?
Once through and press “save.”
Variations over a simple loop.
