Where a violin standsEdit

Violins are the most popular string instrument in an orchestra. Usually, half of them get the hardest parts to play out of everyone. Why half? The violins are broken up in two sections. The First Violins, and the Second Violins. The First Violins, or the Firsts, get the high notes, most of the time they are faster than the rest of the group. If yoyu play them wrong, they can and will screech. The Second Violins, or the Seconds, have the lower parts. They have a lot of notes in common with the viola, the next deepest instrument in a string orchestra.
