I was Googling to look for cello videos to watch fingering and bowing. I came across this  video. This is done by a violin store. I am not advertising the store. But it is interesting.

There is interesting info on setup adjustments in the talk at the beginning. After that there is some really nice fingerboard work and bowing in the songs she is playing.

The first song is actually a bluegrass song! Bluegrass cello!

This cellist’s fingers are flying on that fingerboard during parts of these songs.

At the end she plays two cellos that are the same. The first one has not been sold, but the other one is her cello. She was demonstrating and explaining how the cello sound changes and grows with you as you play it, like the violin and viola.

This is really an interesting video.

She is very talented and unique.

@Mark I wish I could play 1/4 that good! Her fingers fly over those strings. She and the cello are one. That is what I want to feel like. I actually gently hug my cello before starting. If I get messed up, I stop and give it another gentle hug. Does nothing for my playing, but makes me feel good, and like I am connected. Weird, I know.
