How To Play the Musical Saw

While in Chattanooga for Mary Robinette Kowal’s birthday bash, Ken Harrison (Mary’s esteemed father) played his saw for us. He also gave us a brief tutorial on how one plays the musical saw, and I caught it on camera.

The bonus bit at the end is for all my fellow Trekkies out there.

    Thank you for sharing this video! I hope I get to meet Ken Harrison some day. He gets a really nice sound out of the saw. I hope one year he might come to play at the annual NYC Musical Saw Festival (www.MusicalSawFestival.org).

    All the best,

    Saw Lady
