String Quartet Arrangement Advice

Hi folks!

Hope I'm not intruding on the group, I'm not much of a classical string player but I'm looking for advice from some. I'm working on my first string quartet arrangement and I was just wondering of some of you folks might be so kind as to take a look over the score and let me know if you see any glaring errors or idiosyncrasies.

Cello

Hi All, 
I am a cellist and have been playing for over 5 years. I am looking for some fun pieces to play. I am not as far as I want to be with my playing as I've been kept back for a while now. If anyone has any suggestions that would be much appreciated. Many thanks!

Choral Piece for SATB+Piano

Hey guys, I'm a new member of this group! I wrote this piece (called "Speak to Me") for the 2019 NAfME Composition Competition. Unfortunately, it did not make it in, but my high school choir was able to perform it for our winter collage concert this past December! I'd appreciate it if you guys would check it out and give me feedback! (It's my least viewed score with only 5 views, lol). P.S. you might be able to tell that I was listening to a lot of Eric Whitacre at the time that I wrote this XD P.P.S. If you would like to know the backstory/inspiration behind this piece, feel free to let me know!

My second composition! :)

 Well, that sure was quick.... my second piece... A study for classical/acoustic guitar, the instrument that i really play! Dont be fooled by the simple structure because it is hard, especialy to make a good fingering (probably gonna take some notes out to make it more simple and playable for guitar). Inspired by me i guess...? I just went with my flow and followed a great deal of advice from my first piece. Structure wise i feel it is obvious - A in D locrian (say whhaaaa)/pentatonic minor as well (in some parts) with a modulation to Bb major and a bridge to section B in D minor with a bridge to repeat the study until the coda. Sounds like a boos theme who went to brasil for carnival to me lol.... but idk...well enjoy! :)
