I recorded this little set on my new viola. An old accordion tune titled "Reine de Musette", paired with "Happy Time Waltz".

Any comments are welcome!

Thank you.

That was fantastic! I cannot add any more than that! Thank you. You are receiving a Critique Badge. I notice you do not have one.

@Worldfiddler -

Those were BEAUTIFUL! 

Where did you find these pieces? 

How long have you had your viola (I've only had mine a couple days)? 

Have you seen our "Party Room"

The 'Christmas' Party is the only one closed -

the rest are open and will hopefully inspire you to join us.

@Worldfiddler -

I just saw what you have shared on YouTube! 

LOVE IT ALL! 

AND... you played a 5 string for Ragtime Annie!!! 

I have waited a LONG time, well since I started playing the violin, to find someone else that plays a 5-string & YOU are FABULOUS! 🤗 

Sorry, I didn't realize you've been playing VERY WELL for quite some time! 

Thank you, for taking time to post here - you are truly an inspiration to me! 😊

Woah! It looks so effortless when you're playing.

Glad you shared this with us, it's inspiring. Proof that you can do just as much with a viola than a violin (… and that I still have quite some way to go until I get anywhere near this ! ;--) )

@Worldfiddler Great playing! These tunes go well together.

@ELCBK - I've had the viola a few months now.
The tunes are "Reine de Musette", an old accordion tune by Will Starr, and the 2nd tune is "Happy Time Waltz", made popular by fiddler Kenny Baker.

Worldfiddler,

I agree with SharonC, those tunes go together very good.

Both sound very good,

Thanks for posting.
