(excuse the kitchen in the background. that’s where the light was good.)

I think Eric might die if he knew I had nicknamed his wonderful cello “Cheeto”, but really it’s a compliment. No, it’s not really that orange. In fact, it’s less orange than most similarly-hued instruments. I love it. It’s small in the hand (and in the case), and very balanced. Plus, I really like Cheetos®. One could say that I love them. Nearly as much as I love this instrument. He has my cello for the next few days, and I’m hoping that something works out in trade. Just in case, though: I am accepting applications to be my benefactor. Perks include free cello lessons/recordings for life and my eternal gratitude.

  1. How beautiful!!

    A question for you (sorry, I couldn't find an "email me" button): I played cello in grade school and part of high school and now after *cough*-teen years, three kids, and a cross country move, would like to start up again. Where should I start? The cello is still in good shape, but the pegs slip so it won't stay in tune. Should I start with scales? Songs I used to play?

    Thanks for any help you can offer!

    Hey Monica! Start with taking it in to your local music shop and get some new strings. Since strings are expensive, maybe you should develop a relationship with them just to make sure you can come in and have them manhandle the pegs for you. Otherwise, it's too easy to break $150's worth of strings in a day.

    I wrote a post about coming back to the cello here. Perhaps there's a little info for you to get started up again. Welcome back to the cello! We've been waiting for you. 🙂
