Natural and artificial Harmonics, or Flageolet tones, may be produced on the violin. The natural harmonics are obtained by placing the finger quite lightly, and without pressure, upon the string, and bowing with great care. From the middle of the string upwards towards the bridge, and also from the middle towards the nut, lie natural harmonics at the nodes of the string. The sign indicating that a note is to be played as a harmonic, is either o, flageolet or son harmonique.
In the case of harmonics which yield a note differing from that stopped by the finger, the actual sound produced is indicated by the sign
G string.
