Well, I finally got back on the cello after the longest “unexcused” absence since I started playing.   May it be the last.

Last night – new scale: E major, 2 octave.    The scales helped me get back into the habit of bowing.   Did not use the metronome my first day back.     The one thing I noticed is that my cello sounds unusually nasal, and actually I had noticed that before I took a four day break.    

This morning, worked through the Bb in Kummer #35 as a review.  As you recall, some of them are better done as extensions while others are better done as half position.
