I’m calling off what is left of cello practice because I’m doing something wrong in straining my neck, particularly on the right side. So, after I calm it down, I’m going to work through the Kummer through measure 12, and see where my neck starts straining. I have done what I can to ensure a good balance and a stable position so that I can at least reduce any confounding causes. I suspect my music stand may be a touch too high, causing me to look up at the wrong angle. I’ll try that once I get back on it.

Otherwise, things are going pretty well. Doing more 3 octave scales now. C major, D major, Eb Major, and E major. I need to work on feeling on top of my left hand, but primarily my mission is to keep that bow moving!
