Will Advice on instruments (19) RE: Advice on instruments 14 Mar 98

Murray makes good sense, as usual. One note about the fiddle, though. My cohabitant started playing about two years ago. She plays piano and has a good ear, but has never played any stringed instrument before. Within a day, she was enjoying herself and within a week, I was enjoying listening to her. She is still playing and I am still enjoying.

Now, I'm both biased about the player and have eclectic tastes in the music that I like (some of which is quite tasteless), so take this for what its worth. But if you pick up a fiddle and it seems to fit, then do it. (And if the fiddle doesn't seem to fit, try calling it a violin and see if it fits better).
