It’s not so simple. Violin and viola are not really the same, and the quality changes throughout the range, from relatively simple movements to more complex and even complex-sounding combinations. So, if you want to make changes in quality, there is a whole range of things you can try (although you will never get a real ‘true’ Viola).
If you have a viola-shaped peg as a string holder you can make a change in tone by using a small violin’s end cap instead of a regular end cap, or by bending or twisting the end of the cap to make it larger and thinner – or you can just pull back the end cap and use a tiny end cap to make the neck change. If you’re doing a change in tone with the string holder, you might need to make a small mistake in your string or change your string tension to the correct setting, so a ‘good’ viola requires a good amount of practice with different strings to make the correct tension and release.
To test different strings for their quality, you can play some of your favorite songs through the viola and see how your sound differs as a result, or read the section I called the ‘Viola-Tuning’ article that comes with the D-S Strings book.
I hope these lessons help you choose a good viola for your playing!
I am a big sucker for beautiful and inspiring patterns. This is one of my favorite patterns of all time: a beautiful lace crochet scarf pattern made with the “Uptown” style. For those who would rather crochet that way, I have included a PDF tutorial and a written tutorial. The scarf is great for any occasion, and can easily be adjusted to match your favorite outfit.
This pattern has been updated to include instructions for a “no-skimming” stitch option.
For a little bit of inspiration this week, we asked you to share your favorite “funny pictures” from your childhood. Whether they were funny because they were clever, funny because one of your parents was a hilarious and amazing person, or funny because of what they were trying to say, we hope you enjoyed your time with these.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
Predicting the impact of climate change on the entire world will take more than just forecasting temperatures, according to a new study from Columbia University. The findings, published online this week in the journal Nature Climate Change, show that climate scientists must also take into account how
