Reply To: Bach Cello Suite No 6 – prelude

Awesome indeed! Bravo!
I recorded an EWI version years ago (it’s on youTube) so this prelude was one of the first things I have tried on the melodica, but I still have troubles with big jumps: are you involving the left hand or is it just great right hand technique?
I have recently started to have a look at Violin Partitas and it occurred to me that we could better emulate bow movements on broken chords by having a “sluggish” fingers’ movement, what we would call an extreme “tenuto” in Italian, to the point of having arpeggio’s notes overlapped for a short time: maybe this could create the effect Oscar was wishing for, what do you think?
