Whatever piece you find here, but not for cello, you can easily edit for cello. Here's one.

I'm new here and still not very good with the software, but I saw a discussion about the lack of scores for cello in the musescore community, so here's one of my own adaptations as an exemple:

All you have to do is change any instrument in any sheet you'd like for cello, make sure the clef is right, select that instrument (line) from the begining to the end of the sheet and adjust all the notes at once clicking up and/or low on your keyboard. When you are satisfied with the notes (I like to play it lower, darker, whenever possible), you are set.

You can also change all the other instruments in a symphony (select the instrument line + up/down until you have it harmonized with the cello part) or convert a whole symphony for a cello orchestra.

I thought this post could be useful for newcomers. If this is a repeatitive subject, please moderate and delete. :)

Viola/Bass duet?

Would anyone happen to have any viola and bass duet pieces? Me and my friend are looking for something that is beginner-intermediate*, and the bass part does have something more than quarter notes. I'll also be okay with a Viola/Cello part, as long as it doesnt go below a low E. Thanks!

*We've been playing for about six months, and the hardest we've done is doing Moana songs (like 4 songs in one score). I'm sure we could also figure out a intermediate piece too.

The double bass

A double bass goes to a psychiatrist.
Double bass: Doctor, someone told me I sound depressed.
Doctor: Let's hear it!
Double bass: G - D - ,A - 'E.
The psychiatrist's face darkens.
Doctor: I refer you to a good friend of mine. He will operate on you.
Double bass: And what will become of me then?
Doctor: A cello, a viola and a violin.
