The desire to play music

Posted by haystack on Friday, May 17, 2013

I was very fortunate to have the instruments available when I was growing up.  Dad had mandolin, guitar, fiddle, dobro, and banjo that I could play with, as long as I was careful with them.  I can remember, at about 4 years of age, plugging in the radio, amplifier and dads lap steel.  Something shorted out, and all 3 of them were smoked.  Dad, when he was 14 was playing square dances on a fiddle he had made out of a wooden cigar box.  He cut the hair from their horses tail to hair the bow he had made.  I was sent this link by a friend that I flew helicopters with in Vietnam.  It shows the ingenuity of people, who, when they want to play music, will find a way.  Reminded me of Dad and what he did so he could playr music.

If the link doesn't work go to you tube and look for the Landfill Harmonic Orchastra. Jim
