I dunno if folks here have seen the above before but it's a bit funny, Sting plays the theremin badly in this piece but it doesn't matter because he sings good..ie

I think Sting played the theremin rather well. He did not attempt precision, and as an effect his playing was....well.....effective. It's a great arrangement (loved the fiddler) and as usual he sung good.

......sang well??.........wudeva!

How did you like the little doll effigy thingee stuck on the top of his E'wave?

I too thought it was good for the piece. To use a word I hear a lot when talking to people about theremins it gave what they call a 'spooky' sound, which was in keeping with the effect they were trying to create. I keep now playing this YT clip. Great. Thanks for posting it!

PS. Doll thingee? Whatever floats your boat!
