bow shape

Postby FedeFavali » Sun Mar 17, 2019 9:27 am

Hello everyone,
I would want to put the shape of a bow above some staff of a piece that I wrote for viola.
Do you know if there is some special font where I can find such a type of symbols?

thank you very much!

Just curious–

What does the shape of a bow above the staff signify? Any directions for a player are usually done with text, so as to be perfectly clear. I found a drawing of a bow on the internet and attached it to this post. You can add it as a graphic. There are others you can search out.

Thanks!
I want to use ordinary sound, wood or wood+ordinary sound so I wanted to find three drawings to indicate them.

Thank you again!

so, ord., col legno, and... how do you play "ordinary sound" AND col legno?
there are already standard text expressions for this. why try to reinvent the wheel?
