I especially love the way he uses ponticello. The stuff that he plays is not all that hard but he has a great feel for it. I would love to hear more dynamics in his playing.

It is all still very difficult to me, but it seems that you and Jean and all the other greats must reach a point were the degree of difficulty doesnt play into your selection of piecies .  

I know that some of the music that moves me the most, and  I mean deep (chills down your back , or uncontrollable smiling.)  can be some to the simplest rythams. 

I think it all goes back to putting a piece of yourself into what you are playing,  and no insrtument allows you to do that like the violin. 

Of coursre thats just my thoughts on the subject.

It's like the lowest string on a Viola. It's a C-string

So you would play open string C, D,E,F   open string G,   and this gives you a one octave lower capability right?

Actually doesn't give you an octave but gives you a fifth lower which is not that far from an octave, just a major third away. 🙂

So does a five string violin give you the full range of a viola?

Yep. It's like having a violin + a viola in one instrument.

Does it make you eligible to be the target for viola jokes? blink
