This is always a matter of taste really. I deliberately wanted to take
the soft edge off, as sometimes I think people smooth this melody out
till it's nothing by mush. However it is difficult balance to get right
and the instrument I used with the 'bite' is fairly consistent for the
whole piece, although there is a sort of acoustic illusion that
makes it seem to vary.
