When I haven’t played in a couple of days, I have been suggested to try the following routine (and what I did last night)

* Scales in first position – just to get re-grounded. Re-establish first position

* Scales using the standard fingerings with all the shifts – C major and D major

* Some pieces I had worked on before

Then,new stuff.   What do you do when you’ve returned to the cello after a couple of days without?
