I've taken the plunge, and bought a viola :)

Numerous reasons why I did so, but or now, suffice to say I like the instrument very much.

EDIT : I have uploaded it again, this time with better audio quality.

Here's what I came up with : a little piece that (to me) was more suited to viola than violin. A cover of "Somethin' Stupid", sung by Frank and Nancy Sinatra.

Any comments welcome!

Thank you.

You play your viola very well. Your, "Something Stupid, is really nice. Thanks for sharing this.

@Worldfiddler -

FANTASTIC! 

Sounds wonderful! 

Great to have another Fiddlerman forum member turned to the 'Dark Side'

With 20/20 hindsight, I can see @ABitRusty could've started a "NEW VIOLA PARTY"! 

Tell us more!

...anyone else thinking about it - maybe a 5 string VIOLA? 😁

I like how as you slide the notes you are fading them out...that is great!  Thanks for posting this!   I dont think I would have paused on a tune list with this in its name...but once I started listening I thouggt how cool.

@Worldfiddler Congrats on your new instrument!  Nice playing! I agree with you—the way you’ve played it, I think the tune is better suited to the Viola!
