Matt Woodbury/Mimosa How did you choose your instrument? (69* d) RE: How did you choose your instrument? 06 Jul 00


I took violin lessons for 8 years, then swithched to viola when i went to collge, because my violin teacher said I needed a bigger instrument and they didn't make bigger violins. I switched to voice a couple years later, thinking I had better control over my voice than my fingers (since then I've learned control over my voice is counter-productive).

I tried to learn guitar to accompany myself, but never got comfortabl;e with it, and gave up. About 4 and a half years ago, I found an ad for harp lessons that included a rental, and the rental could be applied to the purchase, so i went for it. I still have the original 26 string harp I first rented, but ende up having a 20 string harp custom built last year. His name is Richard, but I call him DICK. He talks to me, insists on taking trips, and tells me what songs we have to do together.
