My dream has come true: I have a cello. It’s shorter than I expected: around 4 feet tall, with the 3 inch metal stand stuck in its bottom. I have no idea how to play it except like a bass, and I haven’t played a fretless bass in 20 years. The notes of the strings are different anyway, so I can’t play your standard basslines even if I remembered any.
I know someone who knows how to play, so I’m going to take a few lessons to get the hang of it. I’m renting it for three months. Look out Yo-Yo Ma.
