A few months ago, it seems more recent, someone wrote me about fiddling on the viola.
I've done that. It's not as easy as fiddling on the violin. The bigger instrument takes more enerfy and strength to keep up with speedy players.
If you play viola, you might consider playing fiddle tunes on the violin, like Kathy Aagard, the Asst. Principal Viola of the Florida Orchestra.
My thought is that the viola could be a great jazz ax. Like the baritone sax. A unique voice and its own reason for playing jazz.
Until that happens, you might check out my info on Viola Fiddling.
