Thanks for your contribution anyway megomoo - are you thinking of cello or violin? Theres a chance that a may be able to aquire a cello from someone i know and i would so love to learn, but musical expertise is very limited so ive a lot to learn!

hey Petra,


i play the cello, and have been doing so for 6 years, its not terribly hard, if you are determined enough you could easily teach yourself the basics with the help of some books [img]smileys/smiley4.gif[/img], really there is no way to see which instrument is best for you, i think you should just try out each, like hold a violin/viola, and see if you would be comfortable holding it that way,[img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img] or you can go the easier way, and sit down and play the cello.anywho, if you have anymore cello q's , private message me :O)


Cheers,


Krystian

I now have my cello and went out and bought a bow yesterday. What a gorgeous instrument. It soundsgood even before i know how to play it! Now i just need to organise a teacher. I wonder if Oli Kraus has an hour or so free each week!![img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img]
