How Not To Play The Cello

If someone had told Camille Saint-Saëns that there would come a day when people would use a mouse to play his music he would have been a very confused composer. The Berlin Philharmonic has created a neat flash game that allows one to try to do just that. The game gives me a great deal of anxiety, as I keep running out of room on my mouse pad and making horrible squeaking noises on the instrument. Maybe non-musicians will enjoy this more than I did, but I'm seriously anxious now and must go play my double bass to reassure myself that I can, in fact, make nice noises come out of it.

3810 points... I'm switching instruments. They should do one for the french ha'orn, but with a really small circle moving really fast where you have to keep an even tinier circle inside it at all times and if you don't you lose.
