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

When you play your fiddle tunes on the viola, are you playing the same NOTES as in the sheet music, or are you simply playing on the same (relative) strings - i.e. - 1st-

3rd, etc.

 

Just curious, since you've transitioned so quickly from fiddle to viola. I would still be picking out notes very slowly after changing clefs...duncecap

Im just playing them the same as I would on Violin as far as strings go. Some of these cross over well since some tunes like Will the circle be unbroken never uses the E anyway. Remember the Viola shares 3 of the same strings and as for reading alto clef its coming along nicely. Not all that different then read G clef
