As stupid as it may sound, I really feel a bit sad right now after writing it. I miss this so much. Creating these beautiful melodies simply by pulling the strings was a strange form of empowerment. Different than just listening to a recording from someone else. You could play a high note and then give it that sad sounding vibration by pushing the string with your finger. You could make it sing.
I didn't know how much I miss it until I got prompted into writing about it. Is it weird to feel sad?
