A brand new viola in a fiddlemaker's shop. Viola players are often the butt of musical jokes, specifically about how its tone is not as loud as violin or cello. Punchline is usually, "they burn longer."

    I love your crop. Shane brought one home but it didn't stay long. My ears were splitting. I wish I had been more encouraging. He picked up the mandolin and had it figured out in no time.

    My daughter played viola in the Annapolis Children's Symphony Orchestra when we lived in Annapolis. This brings back great memories. A very nice shot, Don.
