    Question Need to identify this symbol

    Does anyone know what the little o above the 'A' note means?



    Thanks in advance,

    Looks like the composer wants that note to be produced via use of harmonics.... (Don't know though, as I am but a brass player and not a string player.)

    Yep, that's a symbol for a harmonic.

    the bass player touches the string one octave above the open string low A (his preceding note) and it slurs automatically up to the octave harmonic. (notice the slur marking, meaning it is supposed to be played in one bow)
