    Is there a violin player around - also Cello?

    I am looking for impossible and possible double stops for violins, alto and cello. What must I keep in mind? Or is there a website around with info on this subject?

    I will bow for any useful answer,

    It's a very good question, Raymond. SecondSelf, thanks for the link - as dense and difficult as the text is on the page you linked to.

    Worrying about what's really possible with double stops has stymied me also at times - My "solution" has been in the traditional keyboard oriented musician manner, which is to say, as someone much less concerned with what's possible than with sounds good - and that's been to go ahead and write it the way I want! -hehe---then if the music is performed at some point by live musicians, the whole question about double stops can come up again and be solved by the real live musicians having to deal with what I've written.

    I am a keyboardist and this isn't exactly what you want Raymond but worth a look. I've referred to it for playing techniques and to have a listen to real people play real instruments.

    (A good book with lists of playable multiple stops is the Sammy Nestico book "The Complete Arranger". You can download it for free at scribd.com (if you have an account with them or a facebook account) but its worth buying if you're going to use it a lot.)

    All the best!
