|1||[on learning to cope with different tuning protocols for cello and bass, both of which he plays] When sight-reading music, the note you're looking for falls in different places on the neck of each instrument, so your brain has to compensate to be proficient in both. I gladly focused my attention on the bass and wired my brain for an instrument tuned in fourths.|
