Cellists

I’ve been playing the cello since I was in the 4th grade. Originally, I picked up the viola in 3rd grade but for whatever reason I didn’t like it very much. I don’t know know why. I just didn’t. So stop wondering. I always enjoyed playing my cello but I never strived to be as great as those who get paid to play.

Yo-Yo Ma is by far my favorite celllist…just listen

What we’re all familiar with, right?

Then you have the electric cello played by Carol Thorns

A little different…but still beautiful.

I thought I’ve seen & heard everything.

Apparently not.

OMG…how have I not discovered Apocalyptica?

This is a really good mashup.

Yeah, okay, so it’s almost 9 minutes long but you can fast forward through it.

I’m pretty sure I heard this one on the radio:

so maybe I did hear of them…I take back what I said about not discovering them.

Here’s their official youtube channel in case you are interested.

And we can’t end without a Guns N Roses cover…

because they will always be my fave band.

There you have it. No videos of me, lol. Maybe one day.

    I saw Apocalyptica live once... when they opened for METALLICA. Hell of a show.

    I love the cello. It has that deep, "I have a chest cold" vibration. . . Great GnR cover!
