I had this viola lying around the house that I never used, I finally ordered some viola strings and strung it up tonight. Boy violas are huge! Took me a bit to get the fingering spacings down. When I switched back to my violin I felt like I was playing a 1/4 size instrument. It was interesting being able to play part of a tune in normal positions but having to figure out how to play the B part on the lower strings ... anyways then I added a bunch of other stuff on top of it ... let me know what you think.

Great tune and well played.

Thanks everybody, it was fun trying to figure out how to play it in the same key. It's also good exercise in stretching your pinky.
