Playing Bach Cello suite prelude 1 and I've been having just awful squeaking on the A string but this helped me just realise maybe I have to anticipate the switch, try to make the movement minimal (Also helped, another video, telling me that you shouldn't think of the strings as different levels, but as a hula hoop roll of notes)

Merci beaucoup :)
