Many of us like to listen to music while we work in the shop, but this guy takes it to a different level! Be sure to watch all the way to the end to see his inventory.

Inspiring! I have a former neighbor who is a luthier, maybe we can work together, but I’m not sure how to replicate the facial hair thingy. The fake beard would get in my way and make it pretty hot to work!

My thoughts: I would love to have one of his (or their?) instruments. I had to watch it three times and saved it for another down the road. I found that I could not watch it without tapping my feet and smiling. The chisel and the mallet have a good beat. I loved the down to earth shop. The bird most likely loves his nest and the beat as well as the shop and his neighbors. It might be wise if the man playing the instrument also wore safety glasses. If you have to loose your hearing because of your tools you might as well let music be part of the causes of the loss. When you can no longer hear you can no longer hear the music so you might as well enjoy it while you can. It really does seem like the two men and the bird all march to the beat of a different drummer. Anyways, thanks for the post Charlie. I really did enjoy it.

OPA! Thanks for the link. I think that was 7/8 time. last week a Greek- Australian drummer, guitar player, singer and wood turner was out to the place trying a few of my guitars. On the table he drummed 7/8 and 9/8 times, very infectious!

He then launched into the Zombies “She’s Not There”, a tune I had completely forgotten. I looked it up and I’m adding it to the heap. Showing my age I guess.

Great tune, Bill! I hadn’t thought of that one in a while either.
