Okay, with the holidays upon us and Christmas coming so soon... I gave in. When asked what wanted, I said another instrument. So the journey begins...
Do I get a viola, cello, or stay with just the violin?
I'll give you my thoughts on each of those options:
Viola- Too similar to the violin in my opinion and I'm worried that it may screw up some things for me when playing the violin. But it's got a beautiful sound to it and there are some things that would be fun to play on it. And, I think I would progress faster than I would with a cello, because it's similar to the violin.
Cello- Could be difficult to learn. Beautiful sound and so many things playable on it. And maybe after a few years I could be playing the suites. It's the one that in the end, I would want to play.
Staying with just the violin- My future could be focused. But it could be boring and I may have more oppurtunities being able to play two string instruments than just one.
So.... Can you give me your input everyone? Opinions, stories, experience, other options?
Thanks so much and I'm looking forward to hearing each of your thoughts
