In appreciation to USER Frizz I "borrowed" some information on an Interesting Career that might be considered by others.

Become a "LUTHIER" .. a REPAIR CRAFTSMAN of String Musical Instruments. My experience was only as a Violin student through my school years. I experienced the need of a Luthier to refurbish my fiddle.. and give it a Strad appearance.
Here is one old Work Shop.

Image
When you enter this one a little bell on the door will sound

Image
You will find the master craftsman at work like this.

However, if you enter this modern day one in Green Bay you will be greeted with music and a 360 degree Tour of his shop. Like this.

CLICK RIGHT HERE and enjoy a personalized Tour

Thanks Frizz .... Any other careers that some might pursue here?

Those horse tails always keep coming off. Laughing ... Laughing
This instrument should be difficult to repair.

Never saw a "Harp.. Guitar" before. It looks pregnant and beautiful. I wonder what it sounds like. ... Question ... Question It looks difficult to repair and costs big bucks.

Not certain this Guitar Player, who would have been 73 old this year .... had any Guitars repaired at the Work Shop... but, he sure helped sell a lot of them.

Image

If he were living today (at 73) what lyrics would he have written for this particular song... "ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT" for the SENIOR CITIZEN VERSION of today. Check it out.

CLICK RIGHT HERE NOW and follow the lyrics and the music Not easy finding this stuff. Laughing ... Laughing Enjoy! .. No.. not me playing the guitar.

Playing guitars and repairing them are Great careers... if you are good at it.

Pat Metheny's Picasso guitar could keep a Luthier quite busy.

Here is Pat playing it.

Speaking of guitars and guitar players, Jeff Healey passed away yesterday from cancer at the young age of 41.

Thanks for the info ... Jeff healey died a little too young ... was a Canadian blind jazz and blues singer-rock guitarist. For those not too familiar with him here is one photo I retrieved.

Image ...

Musician reports and Singers might be an opportunity to start another Off Topic on Music and performers... just a thought. I have lots of music stuff from this old Baritone. Ahem...

Does my Mountain Hammered Dulcimer fit in this category?? I hiope it never needs repair. It was a bear getting tuned in. I bought a handmade on while in Colorado in December. Now if I could get UN-lazy and start reading music instead of playing by ear. LOL I'll call upon Frizz to fix `er right up then Wink

Reading up on Luthiers and their trade, I am tempted to build my own violin. What an achievement that would be..., now if I could only play the violin, it would really be great.

Why not give making your own a chance? You can do it.. You don't have to be as expert as this guy.

Hey Fu, I have three mountain dulcimers! Maybe we can start a WGA band, LOL. Create some kind of cache with a logging requirement of playing "Rock of Ages" (in honor of our least favorite kind of hide!)

3?? KEWL!! Are they regular Moutnain dulcimers or hammered??? I was so excited about getting my first. Do you give lessons?? I need lessons BAD!!! LOL Would be a long way to drive to learn Very Happy

I'm all for a stringed band. I need a case for this thing though. Not the easiest to lug around. I can manage "Rock of Ages a Tribute to our Least Favorite Caches" Heck.. I'm trying to learn "Music Box Dancer" by ear!!

Trudy... sometimes you just have to practice like this little 11 year old... In fact you provided it in another Off Topic thread.

Check it out here... of this Dazzling 11 year ..
