Are you a violinist or violist and do you enjoy low basses, chamber music, and maybe solo or Basso Continuo parts? Then this video is for you.

This is how you stop the notes on the violoncello da spalla. Just like on the violin: 0 1 2 3 4.

This is essentially all you need to know when you pick your own violoncello da spalla from the case, go on stage and play.

And then you start touring, getting nice reviews, start recording as a soloist or chamber musician, get invited to lecture all over the place, start to earn more and can afford to work less (if you want) and go on holidays. Why not? That's what happens when you decide to be one of the few, rather than one of many 🙂

Play the video I am comparing both VDS and a Viola 412mm. You will learn a lot.
