Last night, I was experimenting with a few chinrests I ordered from Dov Music, and found playing my viola without a chinrest very comfortable.
I'd like to continue experimenting with this, but I wonder if the weight of my head (which supports the viola, not my left hand) could damage the wood, or if perspiration, etc. could destroy the varnish?
Has anyone else tried playing this way? If so, what were your results?
Thanks a lot,
