That sounds like it could be worse. Outside players have to get up to move close enough to the stand and turn.

Every post on the last page got 5 stars, except for Emily's, which all got none, so I've given all of Emily's 5. Clearly she's the only person rating posts here!

@Gordon Shumway - Thanks! 🥰 

 

How about a Box Fiddle?  Love this!

One last one for today, on YouTube video about a church organist who ended up playing Starwars music, "A friend told me that her late father went to the local butcher's funeral and the organist played Bach's "Sheep May Safely Graze"".

When traveling, always put your violin in a viola case.

That way, no one will steal it!

Have fun fiddlin'.

@Mark - Every time I see your signature, "

Master the Frog and you have mastered the bow.

Albert Sammons".

I get this image in my mind!

The Frog on the Snail is my favorite find from Tumblr - had forgotten about it.  I'll have to go back & use it with the Frog Irish Critter Tunes!

I know that I've said it before, but most of the viola jokes that I have learned were taught to me by violists. :)

Thanks for reminding me. I never get enough. Though, I must be clear, I love viola. :)
