And now, for something completely different (but still viola related).
Spent about 45 minutes trying to adjust the Wolf Secundo (thanks @Retired) instead of using the Kun. Seems pretty good now and we will see. My practice of about an hour was all improv while I concentrated on tone and how the viola felt with the Wolf shoulder rest. With only less than two days before I won't be playing for awhile, I just wanted to hear and feel the sounds that I was able to make.
Tomorrow, the viola goes in to have the nut and bridge reduced in height and Wednesday, all my teeth come out. Between the two, there will not be any practicing for awhile! I'm already feeling withdrawal! But on a happier note, my quarterly medical testing was completed on Friday and the results are that my cancer is currently stable with no need for panic at this time!
Only just spotted this so I hope all's gone well for you; there's never any queue jumping at the dentists. You'll soon get over it in a few days and I'm pleased to learn your cancer results are stable long may they remain so. Good luck and you'll soon be practicing once again.
Kind regards, Colin.
@JohnG Wishing you well & quick healing from your dental procedure--glad to hear about your test results.
While you're healing, you can look through your wonderful Mueller Rusch book. Did you think, all those years ago, that you'd save that book to pull it out now to play from it?
Characterize people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words.
Wow, you sure had a long day!
I was pretty much awake thru all the cracking and crunching of my surgery when all of mine were removed, so I was back home a bit quicker. (lol) Unfortunately, a few weeks later I had to return because they missed some fragments - probably not unusual being I opted for a teaching Hospital. 🙄 Hopefully you won't have that issue.
Isn't it ridiculous how we get so attached/addicted to these musical instruments?
Maybe you can have someone pick it up from the Luthier for you. Or maybe it's just a good time to search the forum, watch some YouTube videos and plan on what you'll play next.
Good thing you'll be fine in time for Halloween Candy!
...maybe not peanuts for a while, but there's always Peanut Butter, or Nutello!
