I'm not sure if this is the right topic to post to, but let me know which is the right topic if it isn't.

I'm wondering how many parts are usually written every time there's a fiddlerman project. I know he has a few violins and occasionally some violas and cellos. However, the number of parts each instrument gets is unknown to me.

I do intend to try to score group ensembles using that set up sometime in the future.

No specific rules but I think a lot can be done with 4 parts.

Okay. I'm thinking when I arrange, I'll have to include viola parts, though how many is pretty variable. I'm thinking that there are times that I might be the only violist participant if I do participate. How many violists do participate in a fiddler man group project? If I include a Cello part, what are the chances a cellist member of the fiddlerman forum would turn out?

If you simply make 4 parts, you can convert them to tenor and bass clef as well.
Usually most of the submissions will be violins.

You mean Alto and Bass clef, right? Violas don't use the tenor clef. Cellos and maybe Bassoons do when they play higher notes.
