Hello there from off the grid in Terlingua, TX

I turn 50 next week and teaching myself.  I love the sound of the viola so moving.  Hopefully now that i have a place to play I start playing.

Hi, Carrie!

It sounds like you are doing viola. Welcome to the forum and viola. I agree, the viola is very moving and such a misunderstood and under appreciated instrument. 

You will find many violists here and plenty of members willing to help, encourage and just brighten your day. We look forward to your participation.

Welcome to the forum.

By the way, I have sent you a welcome email with information, links and tips about the forum. You already did one item that was suggested in it, you introduced yourself, 👏👏👏👏.

@carrie - Welcome from another late learner of the viola! Been learning and getting help, guidance, and support here since April of last year. It's been a trip on a never ending road. It's a great place to learn and share experiences!

Welcome to the Fiddlerman Forum! 

Great to have another Violist join us! 

I started with a 5-string Violin, but now I've
been playing a 5-string VIOLA, since February. 
How long have you been playing? 
What kind of music do you like to play?

Hi Carrie. I too am new to the forum but just wanted to say that it's nice to see more folks picking up viola and/or violin as "over 30 adults." I have you beat - I'm 66 and just starting with violin. I am loving it but it is challenging. Looking forward to hearing from you on here occasionally and following your progress. Tom
