I was digg'n around in the 70's and found treasure!  

Jethro Tull's "Aqualung" (1971), performed by the Hampton String Quartet. 

...just goes to show we can play this, too! 🤗

 

A little unexpected Pop-Rock (wish I'd found a better recording), Supertramp's "Logical Song" (1979), performed by Felice D'Amico - very fun! 

Just Being Contented Smiley Have some fun!

Love finding some of my favorite music played by strings!

My teacher on viola

She's also a permanent member of the Bootleg Beatles:-

I think she's hiding behind "George Harrison"

@Gordon Shumway -

Thank you!

Great "Mr Blue Sky" (love ELO) - love your teacher's viola! 

Love The Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby", too. 

BUT... Eleanor Rigby is the 60's (not the 70's)!🤭

How about a Father & Son Cello team from Italy? 

"Stairway to Heaven" (1971 Led Zeppelin) - performed by GuerzonCellos, Enrico Guerzoni and son Tiziano. 

All the effects are ACOUSTIC!

...Violists may be interested, too!

I can't help but want to give merit to where it's due, so here's another Cello performance!  Great inspiration for 5 string Fiddlers, Violists and Cellists! 

"Layla" (Clapton/Gordon - 1970 Derek and The Dominos), performed by RMS Cello Big Band! 

 

 

Maybe more swing'n than rock'n, but couldn't resist.

We're YOUNG at Heart! 😉 

Maybe I am turning this into a Cello thread, but these guys are GREAT! 

"Immigrant Song" (Led Zeppelin 1970) - ACOUSTIC performance by DeGambas. 

 

"Smoke On The Water" (Deep Purple 1972), performed by Melo-M! (also Acoustic!)

Pick up some new techniques?
