@JohnG -

I agree with you completely about Violas. 

I think if you, me & ABitRusty keep at it - we may see more Fiddlers turn Violists by the end of the year!

...now, if I could just convince people about the benefits of a 5-string. (lol)

@JohnG Your Castle Kelly sounds great!  Your bowing looks excellent! A year later, & here you are - a Violist!  Elmo in the background likes it, too smile

Characterize people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words.

Thanks @SharonC, I find it hard to believe that I've stuck it out this long and that I'm actually getting better! I was wondering if anyone would notice Elmo showing his approval!

The old curmudgeon!

I really enjoyed listening and I thought you made it look like a breeze. Also the string crossings and slurring at the same time looked fiddly. I liked stringy’s comments too. Not sure what it is about the violin but I’m there every morning even if I’m feeeling rubbish about my playing. Well done johng looking forward to more of your videos and to seeing even more great playing !!
