@wtw I haven't been there for a while. So I am unsure.
I considered viola for a long time .... I had a cello for a few years, and wanted to do viola because of the sound... IN the end I was not making progress with violin so I dug into violin only.
Regardless you are always welcome here and we all like to chat about viola.
Vibrato Desperato.... Desperately seeking vibrato
wtw, it isn’t you. I tried to join it, too. I then noticed there is a viola section here. Makes sense for the Fiddlershop people to just include viola and cello with this because it saves them having to have one or two more forums to monitor, plus, it makes it easier for us to chat about and ask questions about all three in one forum.
They call me, “Mellow Cello”
