TOPIC: strings and "atmosphere"

Re:strings and "atmosphere" 9 years 10 months ago #6460

Ummm...well, in terms of performances, I played a fair amount, but as far as practice...uh, um, well, lets just say that my violin had a nice vacation for about a week or two.;) My viola was working over time, though.

Hey Godbless, which do you prefer to practice/play? I find that since the fiddle is my newest "toy" that's the one I get the biggest kick out of...especially if it sounds half way decent....Still love to pick up the mando and guitar...but the fiddle is still sooooooooooooooo challenging.......and I like a challenge! :) ;)

I kind of go back and forth (since I'm of course NEVER indecisive;)). I like the deeper sound of the viola, and the fact that it's a little bigger than the fiddle (which is sometimes a good thing and sometimes bad), but viola usually plays either harmony or a classical version of backup, but not nearly as exciting. The fiddle I think is a little more versital, and is a little more fun. It's a bit more challenging, but I just love the treble sound of it, and all the different things you can do with it. It usually is stuck playing second fiddle (pun intended) to the guitar and the piano, but you'd be suprised all the different things you can play on it. But then, everyone needs a violist, so if you play the viola you're essentially a shoe into any quartet or strings ensemble on the face of the planet. So it balences out.:)

I've been telling my worship leader at church we need a violin for some of the tunes. There are a few Tomlin and Casting Crowns tunes that have violins in them. They add the depth and feeling that can't really be conveyed on a guitar.
