In 2004 I started playing cello again after a 45 year lay off. My experience on cello to that point had been 6 years in school from the 6th grade to the 12th
in school orchestra and an all city youth symphony. Through the years I played trombone in band in school and intermittently afterward.including several
40's style dance bands and more recently a couple of college jazz bands and also at church. I also play a fretless electric bass hence the name
bobmrbassman and have been playing that in church for 17 years. I tune and finger it like a cello except, of course, an octave lower.
