previous illustration / next illustration Enticing the Flock to Set Out for the Frontier (引群出塞 Yin Qun Chu Sai) 上一圖 / 下一圖

11.55 - 12.08 on Shen Qi Mi Pu CD 6 #8

Title in Shen Qi Mi Pu (1425):
Lining up with Clouds to Set Out for the Frontier
(排雲出塞 Pai Yun Chu Sai)

 
1425 Section 21 has the same tablature as here; it is short, but with a feeling somewhat like a march.

1546 has this as its Section 20, entitled Drawing the Flock to Set Out for the Frontier (引群出塞 Yin Qun Chu Sai). It is the same as at right except for the second cluster: as at right and in 1425 the open string is the 4th string, making a dissonance on la and ti; in 1546 the open string is the 6th string, making an octave on mi.

The mistake that caused the misalignment, which continues until Section 23, began with Section 13 (q.v.).
