Stay in Tune
By Luthier Patrick Podpadec
It's been a couple of weeks since the last issue was released and we have had nothing but a lot of very wet weather. The rivers and surrounding ground is pretty much filled to capacity. Kind of like my patience with this rain. I know April showers brings May flowers, but enough is enough already. (Listen to me, like I'm telling Mother Nature what to do).
I am trying to think of ways that I can improve my explanations of my articles so that the readers can learn more . I have found in my experiences that it is easier to learn from sight and actual hands on techniques than just reading about a subject in a book or magazine. I hope to be able to develop a“video system” for the readers of the voice and other interested parties, so they can learn more from my articles.
Last week I was able to set up a booth to show people what it is that I do at The Blue Sky Folk Festival. It was held at the Unitarian Church in Kirtland Ohio on Rt. 306. It was their first event and it went off great! Good musicians, good food, good weather and good times were had by all who attended. Please put a reminder on your calender for it's return next year.
Please consider that this venture will take a considerable amount of joint effort to be come a reality. I need the input and feedback from all interested musicians, repairman, luthiers, readers ,etc. so that the 'The Liam Guitar Video Repair School” can become a reality. Please feel free to join in with thoughts and suggestions.
Looking forward to hearing from all of you!
