Item Description Skinner has given examples at the foot of the page of the forms of bowing he developed: the 'straight slur', the 'arrow' and the 'loop'. In each case, he describes when and how to use these devices. The setting of the melody is interesting - unusually, it is scored for violin and piano or 2 violins and piano or 2 violins and cello. Normally, Skinner's music was reproduced on two staves only, as piano music.
