Daily Prompt: Strike a Chord

I love music. I love music of most any kind. There isn’t a genre that I have not found at least one song that I liked in some way. When it comes to musical instruments I prefer string instruments. A bow slides over strings, notes float in the air. Fingers strum and stroke strings to produce passion and fire. Keys of white and black press out rhythm and time, sadness and smiles. My favorite cellist of all time is Yo Yo Ma. The man is the master of his instrument. If I could play any instrument it would be the Cello. The deep evocative sounds, the timbre in it’s frame.

Add a human voice with clear pitch and melodic notes and it is even more beautiful.

  1. i absolutely adore the cello, in fact i originally wanted to play it instead of the piano, but my mother was concerned about how a short, skinny 7 year old was going to carry it around, hah ;P it’s an amazingly beautiful instrument and i applaud anyone who has the skill to make music with it!

    1. I never really thought much of the Cello until I heard Yo Yo Ma play and now I have a better appreciation. I have started listening to a few other artists, but there is something about the way that he plays that is just “spiritual” in a way.
