For the A – Z Blogging Challenge… V is for Violin.
Is there a difference between the violin and the fiddle? There probably is, but I don’t know about it. I do know that fiddle players have a much different style of music than violin players. I love listening to fiddle music, lively tunes that you can’t sit still for (unless you’re the guest of honour at a wake).
I like classical music but seldom stop what I’m doing to find any and listen to it. Of all the instruments my favourite is a relative to the violin, the cello. I like the deep bass. It’s mellow and smooth – much the same way I like my coffee. Music is a continual education, not unlike learning how to make a great cup of coffee. I had piano lessons as a kid. Tried drums later in school, but it didn’t seem to become a passion with me.
What instrument would you most like to listen to? Have you ever written about someone playing an instrument? Give it a try, describe the music in words.
