There's always room for cello!

New hobby for me: I rented a cello!

When I was studying music at McGill, I played the double bass, so it's not an entirely new experience (although tuning in 5ths will take some getting used to). But while I enjoy jazz bass, I was never really a big fan of playing classical bass, even though I enjoy classical music. So I figured the cello would be a good instrument to pick up and use some of what I already know for something a bit more expressive.

New cello!

I'm sure my position there isn't even close to right, I've had it for a couple hours and haven't had a lesson (or even found a teacher). I can play scales, and a few bits of Bruch's "Kol Nidrei" that I remember from the bass...

(I also took a family portrait.)
