Reason #62: I am going to take up the fiddle and take it around the room for a spin. I was torn between trying the cello (such a beautiful beast of an instrument!) and the fiddle (yes, fiddle, not violin), but finally decided (I think!) when a friend of mine asked what I'd like to do with it and whether I'd like to play with other people or in other places. While I may not have such plans at this point, I can see them developing in the future (should the music and I take a liking to each other), so why limit oneself before one has properly committed to the learning? A fiddle it is...with fun, upbeat music to start.
