Should ricochet bowing be included here? Turidoth 21:19, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

Title is wrong[edit]

Spicatto is wrong: it should be Spiccato! I would have corrected it but I don't know how you can correct article titles! Can someone do it for me? Thanks.

And I agree - just trying to do the same, but not finding an edit option for the title. AB

spic. at the tip of the bow?[edit]

Since when is spicatto played at the tip of the bow? It's played at or near the balance point of the stick. J Lorraine 07:36, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

Yanked it. One more mystery: why should we "see also" piccare, which, we're told, is Latin for "pick"? What's this got to do with spiccato? +ILike2BeAnonymous 07:59, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

Yes, that is odd. I suppose it's some etymological twist of fate that adding an "s" to the latin for "pick" makes the latin for "spiccato" while adding an "s" to the english for "pick" makes, uh, ... "spick" ....  ???? I will take it out. J Lorraine 09:04, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

Abbr element in sound file description[edit]

I know that the sound file is pretty darned amazing (since I uploaded it!), and it might be unbelievable to some people that it's played on a cello. However the abbr element wasn't really designed for that sort of thing, and works a bit differently on screen readers from the way it works for sighted people. When I turn abbreviation announcement on, the version with the abbr element sounds like this with JAWS, which IMO sounds plain weird: "Hans Goldstein (Yep, a cello) and Mellicia Straaf (piano)". Therefore I've commented the tag out for now. Graham87 04:56, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

I'm sorry about that. What about the tag produced by Template:H:title: "Hans Goldstein (cello) and Mellicia Straaf (piano)"? Is that less disruptive? -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 05:39, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
Yep, that works for me. Graham87 04:00, 10 October 2010 (UTC)
