How many violins do you own? I'm talking about instruments, here, not ceramic frogs playing the fiddle. Although in the comment section you can tell me how many of those you have, if you'd like.
Mine have really piled up, and I'm not what you would call a "collector." I just couldn't let go of my grandmother's fiddle when I bought a new one. Then when I bought my Italian, I couldn't let go of my modern because I wanted it for teaching student group classes and playing outdoors. Then, I ended up buying my kids fiddles....
Today we'll just stick to violins. E-mail me if you have ideas for the poll! This one was from Larry Samuels. Thanks!
I'm coming down with a nasty cold, and just made a run to the store to stock up on various remedies.
But dealing with a cold before a concert or recital is one thing, dealing with a nasty case of the nerves is another. Which brings us to this week's poll:
If you answered 'yes', please tell us what and why. And if you answered 'no,' tell us why not.
So we know that a lot of people have an entire instrument menagerie. What other instruments do you play, besides the violin?
For this poll, you can choose more than one option, so pick the all the ones you play. I tried to think of everything, but I probably left out SOMETHING! If so, just tell us about it below in the comments!
