John serves as our senior string specialist in the White House String Shoppe.
Cello, guitar, banjo
Well, being the senior member of the String Shoppe Staff, let's just say a long time!
I love the tonal range of the cello.
The 3rd Movement of the D Major Bach Gamba Sonata (recommended recording: Bernard Greehouse and Syliva Marlowe).
Yes, I have two groups. The D'Arez Trio and a crossover quartet called "Riffwood."
Pick up your instrument every day. String instruments can be unforgiving if they are ignored.
The cellos, of course! I also like the Andrea Tartini green rosin and Pirastro Schwarz dark.
