So grateful for God's unexpected blessing this weekend! We had a music gig on Saturday afternoon, but I accidentally snapped the A string on my rented cello on Wednesday. We planned to stop by @longandmcquade on Saturday morning and grab a new string right before the gig. It turned out that the rental had another problem, so the kind salesman switched it out and gave me a Yamaha cello instead. Then we started talking, and he recommended that I think about purchasing one soon, instead of renting for too long. I explained that I don't know much about them, and the idea of finding one was a bit intimidating. But he recommended a cello that he just happened (!) to have in stock. He let me try it, and wow! It was absolutely GORGEOUS and such a big improvement on my original rental. AND it's within my price range for a cello! So I ended up walking out with a much nicer Carlton cello, which I'm going to try for a month and then decide if I want to buy it. Then I got to play this cello at the gig! It was SO easy to play and sounded sweet, vibrant, loud, and expressive. Isn't God so good? If I hadn't broken a string, I would have missed out on this blessing. I love how God just showers His children with blessings. Totally undeserved. "O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him." Psalm 34:8
After a long day of practise I use to do a run through.. After this recording I learned that I am not listening the orchestra part in my head... I don't know why the sound doesn't match what do ( I am neerd in electronic stuff) Some rhythm things I must to calm down, in some spots I am rushing and I miss the seance of rhythm. What do you think? Still 5 weeks for the concert. #100daysofpractice#practise
Redcola and @shortstorycollective are cohosting SPLNTRD WOOD again. These guys rocked the house during a private event at our studio a few weeks back and we can’t wait to have them again for the next Massivemuse. Not to be missed! The link in our bio will take you to the event. .
#100daysofpractice Day 34: I've been having some pain in my right foot recently, I'm assuming because of something wrong with how I'm holding the cello. So, now I'm trying to keep my feet as flat as possible and see if that helps. And now I'm also noticing how much feet look like flippers in socks :)
