How do you play the monochord?
There are a variety of ways that you can play the monochord. The simplest thing to do is simply pull your pointer finger toward you across the strings. Do this with the pointer fingers on both hands and alternate hands. With practice you can be quite smooth and create a sound that seems to have no beginning or end.
You can get different tones by engaging your fingernails on the strings or just using the pads of your fingers. Try playing soft or hard. Move your fingers closer and closer to the bridge and notice how the tone changes.
