I can play all kinds of instruments ... you name it and I'll play it for you. The only condition is that you don't behave like all my friends ... dunno why they always cover their ears or run away whenever I start playing ... :sticktong

surely there's someone in the forum who knows how to play a cello...

well for inspiration you can read a self-biography of an amateur cellist..

http://www.smithsonianmag.com/smithsonian/issues00/may00/bookreview_may00.html

I read it like once... unfortunately due to attention-deficit I don't remember a lot of things from the book except

- the guy started learned cello at 30 years old
- he plays a lot of chamber music with other amateurs
- he enjoys it very much
- he works very hard at his hobby
- even if he don't always do well he keeps working at it

i think visiting an active cellist forum can be quite helpful, even just to lurk around while you are searching for info.

also, i believe that listening to recordings can be quite beneficial even if you are new or self-proclaimed tone-deaf etc.

Hmm... Percussion, Trombone and Chinese Orchestra Dizi player here.

I was trained for the Reed Pipe (or Sheng they call it), but I couldn't be bothered to devote myself to it.

Its said dat Trombone players have no problem with the Baritone and Euphonium. Its da damned fingering dats annoying me. Gimme da slide anyday.
