Árendás Péter describes ways the viola is used in traditional village string bands of the Carpathain Basin. Basically there are three possibilities which are referred to as „viola” (using mainly the C-G string), „kontra” (using mainly the G-D strings), „kontra-viola” (also using mainly the G-D strings but using intervals smaller than a fifth). He provides us with examples from his field collection work in Northern Hungary and Transylvania.
