This is only my second post so I hope I’m not being too presumptuous. I’ve played violin for many years and love the physicality of the instrument - you literally resonate with its vibrations. I also love that you completely control the intonation, which is something I miss with the guitar. However, in retrospect, I wish I had concentrated on either the viola or cello (both of which I play). I love the deeper register and sonorous sound of each. The viola is more difficult to play, in part because it requires larger hands, and the repertoire is limited. So, if it couldn’t be my new-found love, the guitar (!), it would have to be the cello. Every instrument has it virtues and I wish I could play them all. Kudos to all of you and thanks for your perspectives. I appreciate all your comments!
