I finally got up the gumption to rent myself a cello, and get myself some lessons. I am quite excited. I have scheduled time to practice most days of the week. though I want to make sure I don’t over do it.
This wasn’t on my goals for the year, but I think that is ok. I have toying with the idea of learning the cello for many, many years.
Things I didn’t expect when I started learning cello 2 days ago:
- I would be sore, so many muscle I never use
- Tuning is hard, but there is an app for that
- That an hour of practice would pass so quickly.
- I am not tone deaf 🙂
I definitely need to do some finger strengthening and I really want my calluses to develop faster they are tender … I am sure you will hear about this more as the year goes on, dear reader.
