Hi, My name is Bob and I am just starting out to learn the Viola Ive had books for a few years and I now finally can afford a decent low end Viola buying one from the fiddlemans shop. I also play the Guitar and the Harp (well I did till my wife had a horrible accident and I sold it to pay for her surgeries and i have never been able to afford another since they cost as much as a decent car.) I have buit guitars a violin or two and some dulcimers. i like a good tune musically, I dont care about the genres. 

So Hi everyone and I hope to learn a lot.

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Welcome to the forum. Did you get your viola yet or are you getting one?
You are welcome to visit us in Pompano Beach any time. 🙂
Very cool that you make instruments too. Sorry to hear that you had to sell your harp to pay for surgery, it's hard to believe that can be necessary in todays society.
