I dunno...see, the first stringed instrument I ever played was bass. It is my true love...gaia needs to make a bass part of the enchanted strings. Anywho, the point to this story was, I played viola before violin, and then ended up playing viola in orchestra for a semester. Even as a total beginner, it sounds sooooo much better than the violin. But aside from that pointless rambling, good luck with your studies, and someday you'll be on the CSO stage, yes?
