String-player mentality…(hugh sigh)…

@Gene says,”String players can be very frustrating. ”

Nicely put <hugh sigh>

As much as you might like their playing, keep earplugs on hand so that the riffs don’t make earworms in your head that hang on for days. On the other hand, you can get to know that area of the entire orchestral repertoire so that you can hear it in your head any time that you want. Imagine getting to hear Mahler bass parts, for example, practiced endlessly. And you can learn to appreciate the physical agility and strength that it takes to perform at a top level day after day.
