This week’s photo challenge prompt is “tension”.
As a beginning cellist, I’m learning about proper bowing technique, proper finger placement, proper posture, properly reading the music – all of which is lost if one’s cello is out of tune. Tuning is done by adjusting keys at top and or bottom of the instrument that carry the strings over the bridge. The bow is also tightened or loosened to produce the proper tone.
Each of these maneuvers is dependent upon … tension!
Obviously, I did not take this photo, but thought it was such a good representation of the strings, bow, and tension adjustment areas. The “feature photo” is my own.
