"Actually a Cello and Viola share the same tuning of C D G A . However a violin tunes to G D A E and a double bass tunes to  E A D G. Also most instruments within an orchestra have different tunings. Each one plays a part based on it's…"

"Yep, that's the beauty of alternant tunings. You will find one you like. Then try another. Then another.....another one..... and still more.... Best to keep a video library of all the songs you come up with. And before you start to play…"
