At an evening's gathering of church band members, our musical director seriously broached the subject of my taking up the viola to complete our string group (we have four violins - me included - and one cello). Eager to help, I readily said yes and bought a viola the following day. Now that the excitement has settled, I wonder how I will fare with this huge new instrument.
Are there violinists here who, for one reason or another, have opted to play the viola instead? Are you happy with the choice or have you found that you love the viola more than the violin? Or is the violin still a better instrument for you?
