in thread I play the following instrument(s)...

I'm afraid I can't allow you to do that, sir. There are already too many people out there playing the Viola as if it were a Violin as it is... ;-)

I voted Voicebox because it's the only thing I'm currently in practice with (and, I admit, because I was tired and failed to spot "other stringed instrument"), but I still describe myself as a violist. It's a culture as much as it is an instrument.

Of course, my Java-enthusiast friends say I have the same attitude about Perl, but that's a different story.

    Well gee, I'll just have to... I dunno ... grab this here cello and try and fit it under my chin :)

    If only I could sing, I could make happy music everywhere I go.
