Scene 6 of the Yu Ge scroll

Scene 6: Loudly sing a fisherman's song
From the long scroll Yu Ge Tu by Bai Yunli, illustrating the melody Yu Ge (Fisherman's Song)

The related passage in the qin melody is in harmonics, mostly quite high.

欸乃 Ai nai (also pronounced ao ai), translated here as "fisherman's song") is also a common title of the ruibin tuning Yu Ge.
(Listen to Melody of the Fisherman's Song [Yu Ge Diao].)
