Tough to get them into the rock/punk/folk/loop thing. In fact, it seems to be pretty hard to get anyone in to it... :) So I have just followed through on my on my four year old threat and bought an old Kay 3/4 size plywood cello. I dated a girl for a while who was a phenominal cellist and started giving me pointers. With the cheater tape (you know, that yellow tape that novice violinists use as fret markers) I find that more of my left hand technique translates than I would have thought, but the right right hand technique is a bastard. Now all I need is to get some kind of pickup thingy in there and let the loops begin!
