Based on a newly developed method that combines finger position tracking and spectral analysis of the concurrent acoustic record, we studied the accuracy and variability of pitch performance in eight skilled cellists and the role of acoustic feedback in their performance. The tasks required shifting movements between pairs of notes and separated by various distances (pitch intervals) on a single string at the rate of 1 note/s. The same tasks were performed either using the bow, providing… CONTINUE READING
