    • Notice in the first video, the cellist that falls asleep is the one playing the bass line. Inside cello joke, sort of like this

      Bart Simpson and Pachelbel

      And the Bach Cello Suite #1 is the most overplayed cello piece.

      • LOVE the simpson pic… totally need to be a music nerd to get that one…

        And yes, the Bach suite is the most overplayed piece… which is why Steven decides to up the ante and make it more fun… I LOVE his playfulness with music… the guy obviously loves playing his cello.
