On the Stopka, the distance from the nut to the "regular" first finger position seems greater than on my viola. This throws me off a little, and I find myself lapsing into some old bad habits, like pressing too hard with my fingers, pushing my left wrist out, holding the neck in the web between my first finger and thumb. Lots of things I worked hard to fix, now broken again. I guess I can get used to whatever instrument I have, but oh, I'd made such progress on these little things! I'd hate to see them go down the tubes.
