A Dream Come True





Yesterday after church I got to play a friend's cello.
It was
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Much fun!!!
I LOVED it!!!
Because I play the violin I it was a little easier than it would have been if I well didn't!
But it was also harder to play in a way.
For one the strings are SO heavy you have to press down a LOT harder than you think in order to not get harmonics.


And you have to
STRETCH
your fingers REALLY far.

It was also a lot heavier than my violin.
Emily couldn't hold it up so that's why she looks rather uncomfortable in the photo.

Anyway that was what I did Sunday afternoon.
I also have some more photos that I took but I'm going to edit them first.

P.S. If I don't look happy in the picture I really was I was simply concentrating VERY hard.

NO FAIR! I want to do that!!!
Oh well... it sure looks like you had a great time! And Erin, your technique looks pretty good for not being a cellist! :)
