Originally took Viola lessons on a student loaner in ’63 when in Junior College, then life intervened. I now have one on order (cheapy but with good reviews) that should get here next week.

Sorry that this site doesn’t have more interaction, but happy for its resources.

@Violaman – Interesting, may have lost some posts. I had responded to this with a note saying that I have been active and a link to a youtube video to “prove it”.

Here is one.

Still playing my viola, and loving it. Here is my latest video, from about a month ago, number 12 in the series! A Shaker tune, Simple Gifts. This is just 5 months after starting up this adventure.

I like this tune. I do it on my violin, viola and cello a lot. It is a fall back of mine.

@Ripton and @Mouse – Glad you like the tune, it has turned out to be one of my favorites. I know I heard it many years (decades?) ago, but only recently did it re-enter my consciousness.

I am always surprised when someone does not know it because it has been around for so long.
