    I make my living playing the cello, and like most musicians, if not all performing musicians, I’m home with no concerts for some months. I’ve been working on some video projects to keep myself in shape. I’m playing the guitar a lot as well. Currently I’m working on a crazy blues project with a bunch of old friends, I’ll post that when it’s done. Anyway, check out this video my wife and I made two days ago. I’m starting to understand iMovie!

    Love cello.

    My oldest son played in HS, and I bought him his own, but hardly ever got to hear him outside of concerts, where you're hearing everyone

    He claims he still plays, I should see if he'll play some for me after all this

    So many people say the cello is their favourite instrument. Maybe your son ( if he’s not working) will have time to practice now!

    Lovely playing by both of you.

    I was expecting the more famous Concerto in Em - but I was pleasantly surprised. Well done!

    Very nice. I love cellos. More woody soul than anything else i can think of.

    Excellent, sounds beautiful. I have a proclivity to cellos when compared to other “stringed” instruments.

    Ah, thank you for the clarification. It was the key signature of Bb (or Gm) that threw me.

    But excellent playing none the less.

    Thanks.

    Well done. If I were ever ambitious enough to take up a new instrument it would definitely be cello.
