Now, I have had my cello for about three or four years, but it was not until a month or two ago that I really began to study the instrument. I bought myself Book 2 of the Suzuki Cello School and got down to business, and then school happened and I neglected my practicing. Today, though, I finally got a chance to go out and get Book 3 (and on the way back stopped at Rita’s for some Swedish Fish ice…I was mildly disappointed that it does not contain real chunks of Swedish Fish) and I sat down and continued what I had started two months ago. After a day of crocheting, cello-ing, and playing Okami on the PS2, I am afraid I cannot expend any more brain power for a thoughtful and insightful blog post. I figured I might as well show you instead what I have done with my cello.
DISCLAIMER: My bowing position is horrid. Blame my small fingers, my fine motor skill problems, or my inability to follow simple photo instructions on how to hold a dang bow, if you will, but I promise I will try to work on that. If anybody has any tips, feel free to share them, but I swear I am bow-impaired.
So without any further ado, here is Boccherini’s Minuet on cello (please try to enjoy!):
