Re: PICTURE POST II!

I'm not excellent anymore. I haven't played seriously in 12 years, and haven't even picked it up in 2 or 3. Maybe I can knock out a crappy Minuet this weekend or something to see how much my skills have deteriorated.

Also, I love when my mom's cats do this:

A cat honor guard? Most excellent.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

^Playing a stringed instrument is actually rather unlike riding a bike. To be good you have to play every day, and while I did learn young enough that I know I can still play, it's definitely not the sort of thing that just comes back to you after years of not playing. Playing the cello and riding a bike are similar in that both involve placing an awesome piece of human technical and creative achievement between the legs, though.

I used to play the violin and my sister played cello. I did not envy her having to carry that thing around!

Yeah...I was always small for my age as a kid. It's hard to be cool in middle school when your musical instrument is bigger than you are!

It's part of why I'm teaching myself the ukulele right now.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Speaking of your ukelele lessons, how are they going? I hope you feel more confident in your skills by now. If you ever post a YouTube video of you playing the thing let us know!

I was horrible at it and haven't played since high school. I switched to piano and enjoy that sometimes.

It only stings if you hit the wrong sharp.
