December 23, 2007 at 1:25 AMI have been nice this year (if you take out those times during orchestra practice where my stand partner and I swayed to the music of the flutes a little to enthusiastically while we were counting several bars of rests, or when we organized a "viola only" potluck snack during intermission)...
For Christmas I would like:
1 - Absolutely perfect 100% of the time intonation
2 - Vibrato on the Cing
3 - A better bow-hold
4 - Effortless shifts to the end of the fingerboard
5 - The ability to memorize a piece after reading it through ONCE
6 - Arm vibrato
7 - The original Tertis Model viola
8 - To win the concerto competition
I hope this is not too much to ask :)
Luis - Probably for the same reason that most violinist want a Strad... :)
