Physical therapy helped a lot, but I’ve lost so much ground on both violin and viola that it’s just frustrating to pick it up nowadays. Thankfully, I can still play guitar and am learning banjo.

You’re almost making me want to keep it... But... there’s that guitar waiting for me to buy it. (Little voice in my head saying, “Would it really be so bad to have both?” Bad voice! Bad, bad voice!!!
I played viola for 8 years, I was drawn to its sound in elementary school.

I'm sticking with guitar, even when the little voice tries to convince me to take up viola again.

Frankly, six strings and being able to play a song without accompaniment is so nice.
