"Tender%20Toes%2C%20Viola%20and%20Cello.pdf  Omitted the G# in the cello, and added Emily's changes."

"That last double stop for cello is still as impossible as it was in the first iteration of the score. You could leave the cello on the low E, and give the G# to the viola instead (get rid of the B and keep it a double stop; the sound will still be…"

"If I understand you correctly, the cello eighth notes (three-and) in measures 3,6, and 7 should be light. (I would kind of like the G dotted half note in measure 4 to be tenuto with expression (am I saying that correctly?)) The quarter notes on the…"

"I just did a "quick and dirty" and recreated what Charley had in his score.  I merely wanted him to see what John had offered regarding the clef changes."

Bob Porter replied to Charley Hankins's discussion Very short piece for viola and cello
"Charley, Your little piece has generated a bit of attention. Just for the fun of it, and for my own edification, I fixed a few things that seemed out of place, considering how you set things up. I changed a few notes in the cello part to move more…"

Tim Marko replied to Charley Hankins's discussion Very short piece for viola and cello
"Charley, This is what John was suggesting.  It keeps the part from going into extreme ledger lines and has an overall neater appearance.  (Note the clef changes). Hope you don't mind that I did this.  Hope it…"

"If you use C4 as a designation for middle C, the viola and the guitars low c is C3.  Because it was in treble clef, he actually wrote a G#3.  In alto clef this places the note on the first space of the staff.   Does that help?"

Tim Marko replied to Charley Hankins's discussion Very short piece for viola and cello
"John has a good idea.  Most advanced viola players are able to read treble clef, so when you extend the range, it's not uncommon to switch clefs.  The goal is to keep the page clean and eliminate ledger lines. Cellists often move to…"

John Driscoll replied to Charley Hankins's discussion Very short piece for viola and cello
"I would start in C-clef, switch to G-clef on the 3rd beat of measure 5, and back to C-clef on the last beat of measure 17 "

Tim Marko replied to Charley Hankins's discussion Very short piece for viola and cello
"The only thing I see is your final double stop in the cello.  To play this would involve spanning a string, so it wouldn't be playable as written.  If you lower the G# an octave, or raise the C# an octave it should be alright."

Charley Hankins replied to Charley Hankins's discussion Very short piece for viola and cello
"Is it ok that the viola is written a few lines above the clef?  Is that standard?"
