    Thumbs up

    I thought it would be interesting to see how many players of each stringed intrument we are talking to. I play only the violin. What about you?

    I don't know how this survey is going to work...I picked violin, because I couldn't pick more than one...but I'd say I can also play the viola...nearly as good as I play the violin (just can't read the clef fast enough...)...

    Good point Nox. I think everyone should put down their primary instrument. I play piano as well, but mainly violin. Piano is a stringed instrument, is it not?

    I think it&#39;s percussion...not strings.

    Well piano has strings, and the harpsichord you could count to plucked instruments, but the newcoming fortepiano and so on was now counted as new section "keyboard instruments" but Nox is also right, it also appears in percussion instruments... the limits are like often merging.

    I counted for violin, because I thought it was strings here, my major is the piano.

    Ah and Nox, viola would have been better to vote that we had more viola votes .

    Talking

    Violin completely, but I&#39;m also quite proficient on the kazoo

    I tried the viola a long time ago, but I can&#39;t read the clef anymore. I would&#39;ve stuck with it if I could&#39;ve afforded one way back in high school.

    My primary instrument is piano. (Piano is a percussion insturment FYI)
    But since this is a strings-only poll, I voted violin.

    Hmmm...Only violins so far.
    IF I hit a wrong key its becaus i kind of like it that way.

    Violin is my first instrument, bassoon second.
    I might be starting to have a look at viola, and I would LOVE to play cello!!!
    I've always wanted to play cello, I love bass instruments, but I was only able to contact a violin teacher when I first started playing (without going private, which my parents couldn't afford) but I've grown to love that now.
    I still remain very jealous of my form tutor, who is a music teacher and brilliant on the cello!
