Thread Name: Violin or Viola for adult beginner?
Subject: RE: Violin or Viola for adult beginner?
Sorry, when I wrote "folk tunes", I meant folk songs. Instrumental tunes, as typical for instruments like the concertina, may be much more difficult to play on the viola than on the violin (which is sometimes hard enough, if meant for "folk virtuosos").

In the end it depends on a session leader who knows what to do with the instrument.
