    The stage
    yo homes, swan is a feminine word in French so it would be la cygne. Its a beautiful piece but as a somewhat beginning player maybe you should just stick to the elephant.
  3. That's a really difficult piece, I don't think 30 minutes a night will cut it. I play about 3-4 hours depending on the day and I wouldn't touch it yet. But I thought the same thing about the Koussevitzky Concerto and I'm slowly working through it.
  4. Sorry, but you're wrong.

    It's le cygne.
  5. There is a version of The Swan in the bass version of Solo Time for Strings BK. 4 by Etling. It is transcribed for bass and, like all of the selections in the book, will help with playing in positions, especially on A and D.
