    I'm also on the hunt for an inexpensive saxophone (not so easy to find...). I just want to do my best Tim Capello imitation, once before I croak.

    Also have an ongoing project to build an electric 3/4 Contra Bass out of mostly found materials. That one is taking a while...
    I think I'm now inspired; I was planning to buy a new lower from dwkfym, but now I'm scoping ebay for a starter violin. Aww, who am I kidding? I can (and probably will) do both. There's a boatload of sub-$40 violins on ebay, I assume they are crap - can anyone recommend a decent sub-$200 instrument?

    For starting out, a crap violin isn't as bad as having a crap bow. The cheap student instruments are serviceable, but those plastic bows and fake rosin that come with them are for $%&*.

    Make sure you get a real horse hair bow and real rosin. The plastic ones won't even squeak out a note.

    My brother was a kick ass progressive guitar player for many years. He taught me to play bass to bands like King Crimson, Gentle Giant, Genesis, Tool, and Pink Floyd. I had a great time learning how to play. I feel that I have become very solid at long last.

    Lots of new things, here. I'm working without a script, which is why I sound so much like Obama. This was take 7 or so. Forgot to make the damned thing make noise in this take, but the wine was getting to me.

    The former will surely lead to the latter.

    Really hoping so. If it turns out she's into bass players, I'll go mad.

    I used to play the harp. Yes, the upright instrument played by Harpo Marx.

    I played for several years in elementary school and picked it up again in high school for fun. When I was attending U.T. Austin, I somehow persuaded the harp teacher there to let me take her class despite not being a music major. It was the only thing I got a A in that year.

    Someday when I have $1,500 to $3000 to throw away, I will buy a used Troubador harp and pick it up again.

    Grand harps are just too damn expensive.
