TRUST ME YOU’RE NOT
Okay, so I’ve been posting about a certain someone’s Kickstarter quite a bit recently while otherwise neglecting this blog (finals are over, so I shall return this week). I rarely, if ever, endorse anything on this blog, but I truly believe that Joshua Dent deserves to make this album. I only have a glimmer of understanding of how it is to be a professional cellist, but I do believe that if there is no fraternity in music, then it cannot be made.
In this spirit, I ask you to at least check out this page, watch the video, as well as music samples, and share all of these things with friends/family/followers even if you cannot/do not contribute! His music is really phenomenal and inspiring, and he’s an excellent person of character. I really want to see him succeed in this. The page has six days left and I believe that he can make it.
Hi! I’m relatively new to the cello and have been using Helicore strings since I’ve began. I’m thinking about buying new A and D strings, but there are too many kinds of strings for me to select from. I narrowed it down to either Jargar, Larsen, or Evah Pirazzi. From your experience, what strings should I get if I really want dark sounding strings that also have the capability of playing light/cheerful songs?
Thank you so much!
Love your blog.

singingpterodactyl asked: I have been playing cello for six years, and have just now started having problems with my bow grip. My top fingers start creeping up the bow until my hand is distorted and tense. There's a lot of grip helpers, but they are all different and I don't know which one to try.
