Subject: RE: Violin or Viola for adult beginner?
The same thing applies to the cello, except that the spikey bit can cause a lot of neck damage.
By the way, one way to avoid a lot of neck/shoulder problems is to play tha old-fashioned way against the shoulder as I do. It does restrict you to first position, but few "folk" tunes go out of that anyway. I do get up to top "C" my way.
