I have a Karl Hofner Cello (3/4 Bass?) Marked 1964 Germany. Can you tell me where I would have this appraised? It has no strings or bridge. It does not have cracks, but does have some chips on the neck.

Hello Joseph , I really like to watch how you share shitfting cello on youtube. But please show me where should I put my thumb when i shift? thats means what position should I use Thumb position? Do I have to leave my thumb on Note G ( 6th pos) if I want to play note A ( finger 1) , play note B ( finger 2) , play C( finger3) ? Please give me answer. Thanks.

Joseph, So glad to have your expertise on virtual sheet music! My son is 11 and plays Cello. I am concerned for him because I don't think he has proper playing form especially with his bow arm and hand. Could you do some video's on this? Unfortunately his teacher is not addressing this. Tone is vital, but if you are playing in a position that will cause damage your arm or shoulder in the future, it must be addressed now when they are developing their playing.

Thank you!

Hi and thank you for your comment! I am sorry it might have been overlooked for a long time... Joseph has already posted a new video about shifting on May 7, 2014, and I hope you'll enjoy it:
