I am working my way through this right hand exercise. I want my up-bow slurs to sound better. Been working with the metronome, which had been a missing element lately. As I go, I am trying to be more playful and move my body more organically. I tend to be to stiff and controlling with the cello, afraid to make mistakes.
This has obviously reflected issues off the chair. I always felt that I have been measured on the wrong scale, and developed a sense of over-cautiousness when I should be more risk-seeking.
