Its the afternoon of the University Concert and My A has been getting worse and worse over the last few days, what does one do? with a tiny notch in the string around the 2nd finger position I am being driven slightly crazy by the irritation of having my pads ripped to shreds by the ever widening hole. So a new Oliv A will have to go on before the concert.

This was in hindsight a rather poor move as performing Mendelssohn’s Elijah without being able to use the A string properly ass it slips down so much was quite some failure, however it did make the epic piece just a little more exciting as runs up firstly went up the d string before switching across to the E! Its a good job my hands are large enough to stretch or I would have had no chance!

Good fun However
