CAn you play guitar on a violin?

if you flipped it, could a violin be played like a guitar?

Violin and guitar are very different instruments. Each is specifically designed to be played a certain way. I've seen old-time fiddlers play the violin from their hip, so you can certainly flip it to a different position. Violin players sometimes pluck the strings in a technique called "pizzicato". So it's technically possible to hold a violin in a guitar-like position and pluck the strings.....but it certainly won't ever sound like a guitar.

Aside from the fact that a guitar has two more strings and is tuned differently, there are some construction details that make strumming a violin impractical. First, there is the curvature of the bridge. A violin has a highly curved bridge to enable the bow to play single strings. This makes it more difficult to strum all of them smoothly like on a guitar. The narrow violin fingerboard makes it difficult to finger more than two strings at a time...so full guitar chords are impractical.

Then there is the lack of frets. Without frets, the plucked notes on a violin have no sustain...they're partially muted by your finger. A violin relies on the bow for long sustained notes. A plucked note quickly decays.

A violin uses the same tuning as a mandolin, so if you tried to play "guitar-style" you would need to use mandolin chords. Yes, it's possible...but it won't sound like anything you want to listen to.
