Quote from: Heather Harrison on April 29, 2007, 12:10:10 PMI haven't ever played guitar, so I wouldn't be too familiar with the differences (although I know the tuning system is different). Taking up two instruments at the same time might add to the difficulty unless the instruments are quite similar to each other. I took up viola and violin at the same time, but those are more similar to each other than viola and cello. My main focus is the viola, while I play the violin just to get some variety (and to get used to reading the treble clef).On these instruments, I would strongly recommend that you see a teacher; it is all too easy to pick up bad habits, and the feedback is useful. These really aren't do-it-yourself instruments.If you want a bowed-string instrument that is more similar to the guitar, the viola da gamba might be an interesting choice, although it might be difficult to find lessons. Most varieties have six strings and the tuning is similar to guitar tuning. I'm thinking of trying this some day, but probably not until I have more experience.Heather
