Ok you know the youtube video of you and a friend playing Piazzolla Histoire du Tango.

Well i was playing it as i was washing dishes; my cat (Thorne) walked up hopped on the counter and started to meow along!surprised

He was actually pretty good, it was absolutly amazing!! He has never done anything like that before!

I'm going to try to get him to do it again and record it!!cool

I find that really funny! I have 2 cats, Diva and Dillinger. Dillinger my male cat loves music. When I practice my guitar he jumps up on my lap and head butts the strings and paws at them. He's starting to do that with my violin. Last night my wife was saying we got to get this on video. She brought out the camera then he took off. He's a lazy cat but sure perks up when I practice. It's like he is high on something and does the meowing too.dancing

It's really funny for sure. Just got home from a solo flamenco guitar style gig and always feel sorta wired after a gig so I took out my violin started playing, sure enough woke Dillinger up and he jumped up on my lap, I yelled to my wife to grab the camera and he ran off. We''ll catch him on camera soon enough. It's really cute. Cats sorta talk like stringed instruments. I'm going to have to look this stuff up online. Another funny thing is the people above us at our apartment have a dog and we are starting to hear him howl when I practice violin. I don't know if that's a good thing or not but I have been putting in some really long hours practicing violin.

LOL, that is hilarious. I hope your neighbors don't give you a hard time. If so you might want to look into one of those thick metal practice mutes. Good on your ears too wink

You'll get him, you just might have to be sneaky about it!!!, like if you have a digital camera (I think everyone does now n days) Set it up to recored before you start practicing. So when Dillinger comes around he will have no idea!devil

Though you may end up recording and deleting alot.dazed

Thorne i have to be sneaky about recording as he gets shy, which funnily enough is completely opposite from my beardie Echo!tongue

I as well have a cat and she is alot smarter than most give her credit for. I would suggest setting up your camera but not turning it on for a few practices. Let your cat get used to seeing it up while you practice. Once your cat is comfortable with it there THEN start recording.violin-student
