Hi violists!

This is Mustang, a violinist from the Fiddlerman forum. I've been playing violin for close to 4 years, but I would like to get a viola one day.. and a cello. Hehe. smile

 

So... there's Fiddlerman and Violinman... but what about Celloman? Huh, huh? cool

Welcome to "The Dark Side" Mustang! wink

I think I already joked around with Pierre about "Celloman," but if I recall correctly, he said it was already taken.

Feel free to look around and be a part of this fledgling site. We could use a few more warm bodies in here.

Okay, where's my cookie? The Dark Side is supposed to have cookies. :p

Aww, he can't be Celloman too then? What about Bassman

 

I love that we can have bigger avatars here. cool

I don't know if I would be the seventh violist though. xD

 

I actually am probably going to be playing viola very soon, because I'm in a group that's playing at places to raise money to go on an orchestra trip this spring. We're supposed to be a quartet, but we have 3 violinists and 1 cellist. No violist. So I volunteered to play viola if I can find one soon enough, because I know (kind of) how to read the viola clef. My friends were like, "Okay, you do that then. We do need a violist."

Lol laugh

Hi Mustang!  Happy Viola days.

Let us call this a "a soft side" and not dark side.

 I tried to buy those too. They were taken confused

Should I increase the avatar size on Fiddlerman.com?

I don't know if I would be the seventh violist though. xD

Aww, that's too bad. It would have been cool for you to be Fiddle, Viola, Cello and Bassman!

Yes, the avatars should be bigger on Fiddlerman.com too. sf-smile

There needs to be something done about this shortage of violists!

theres already an "all things strings" run by Strings magazine

Bach : As the greatest expert and judge of harmony, he liked best to play the viola, with appropriate loudness and softness

True, but kind of long right? I'm neglecting the ones that I have let alone getting more. 🙂
Plus I don't have time to learn to play Bass and Cello. 😉
