How To Play Basso Continuo On Violoncello Da Spalla.

Have you ever felt thirsty for even more fun in music?

Maybe you even felt you could enjoy a more important role as a violinist or violist but you did not want the extra work associated with playing as a soloist on the violin?

Okay. I can understand and I agree with you.

Here is why.

Me too, I love music but I love making violins too...

And I have to confess, I love going on holidays, specially on sailing holidays.

So, extra work does not really suit my agenda...

I found a nice trick.

I enjoyed playing as a soloist specially on the violoncello da spalla 10x as much because:

1. Whoa... Can you imagine this amount of sound hitting your body right in the middle of your chest? You feel like you are a musical instrument yourself...

2. If you mastered even the violin, your technique is 10x as enough for playing violoncello like this, hence, not much extra work is required if you play as a soloist (Okay, except for the Six Suites, where you would probably have to practice the suites 4-6, and the Menuet of No.2).

3. It does not require ANY extra work if you play Basso Continuo, like in this Haendel.

The funny thing is... no extra work. But they suddenly start paying you more than when you play in the Tutti.

(And then you can go on holidays more frequently. That's where it get's even more fun).


If you are an instrument maker and you don't feel like playing Basso Continuo, you can still benefit from offering this opportunity to the musicians in your country.

Yeah... I know what you think.

In any foreseeable future XYZ Philharmonic is not going to introduce violoncello da spalla section and therefore there is no interest. Not really so.

It's not for symphonic orchestras of course :)

It's for those who like to play as soloists and chamber musicians, specially the earlier repertoire. These musicians get inspiration from music and from the primary sources rather from what's on the audition menu.

In fact, this is why a group of smart instrument makers have joined me for a spalla making course online. It's lot of fun. If you scroll down my videos, you will find couple of testimonials from these makers.

LIKE my page if you liked, I hope, this video. Enjoy.

P.S. If you are not playing any instruments and not making them but simply love music, thank you.
Music cannot survive without your passion for what musicians and instrument makers do.

Strings Magazine

From our friends at Shar Music:

The children’s song “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes” has been used over the last sixty years to teach young children anatomy and to get them moving as they point to each part. The tune is actually a good advertisement for how we, as violinists and violists, should make use of our bodies as we play—from the top of our heads down to the soles of our feet. However, movement sometimes is derailed because we have chosen non-ergonomic equipment, especially in our choice of chinrests and shoulder pads.
