Yellow song check-list notes: "Taksim or tah'sim and sha'ki are the names of specific musical forms, the first free in style to show off one's virtuosity, the second stricter in form. A remark interjected by an auditor toward the end is a form of applause. Sometimes shifting pitches are done deliberately by stretching the string with the left hand--it is not a wow in the machine except at the end of the cut."
