Item Description Skinner has included fingering and bowing marks in this variation of The Bonnie Lass o' Bon-Accord. His 'straight slur' bowing devices are marked in bars 3, 5 & 7. The squiggle or 'loop', seen between the last two notes, tells the player to drag the bow. This gives a particular type of sound.
