This is a diary of my love affair with the cello.

Shaky and nervous

I've always known that my vibrato is shaky and nervous but I had very few ideas on how to correct it. I'm ok with a few slow notes but it starts to get very jerky when the tempo goes up and it involves shifts. This video by Alan Harris is the best I have found on Youtube. I'm pretty excited about incorporating some of this.

David Finckel has a set of video lessons that are pretty awesome - on

I've been practicing one of his vibrato exercises and have noticed a difference.
