So, what about the new 'cello, you ask?
Well, first it needed a few days to acclimatize and settle in. Then, I needed a few days to make some initial accommodations to the new size, feel and most of all, setup. It came with a set of Spirocore chromesteels, a much brighter string than I generally play. Oh, my. I think every one of my faults is amplified.
But I love it. I really, really do. And after a few days it's training me to be more careful about my bow speed and placement. I think I'll leave these strings on for awhile, at least until I have a chance to hear them outside the practice room.
Now, since I've missed a few Tummy Tuesdays and have hundreds of tummy shots of the Cousins, I've put together a slide show. Somehow this little Popper etude just put me in the mood for looking at kitten pictures. Hope you enjoy it - both the kittens, and my debut on the Patriot.
It's Tummy Tuesday. To see more of the (feline) sunny-side-up variety, visit LisaViolet.
