Cello Tips

2nd finger

The first post in the Cello Tips section of my book website is up! In today’s post, Intonation and the Opposable Thumb, I write about how the position of your thumb on the neck of the cello can help your intonation, vibrato, shifting, and general relaxation.

While composing my post, I experienced the amusing challenge of trying to take selfies of my hand. This is probably an activity best performed by two people, not one! Next time I need a photo like this, I’ll try to time it around when my husband is home.
