4to5to6 Posted July 9, 2015 Author Share Posted July 9, 2015 (edited) I've been involved in music and the music business nearly my entire life. Here's the common expression that I have always heard: "The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where pimps and thieves run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side." attributed to Hunter S. Thompson I must say that it is sure relaxing to play the concertina... if I can just find a decent one at a decent price... I will say no more!!! A lot of guys like Robert Pich, David Robertson, Chris Algar, to name only a few have been an awesome help! I've searched (harassed) the world! But... are these musical instruments or antiques? Maybe both! I'm finding out. When I come up with my $500 carbon fibre model that sounds smoother than an Aeola, with unbelievable action, lite weight, even response, speed, balance and dynamics.. and with an indestructible bellows also made of modern materials so that you can leave to whole thing in the back of a boiling hot car all day... look out! Maybe I'm a dreamer... but... Don't worry... Right now I'm only in it for the joy of playing a tune. To me that's priceless! I'm flat broke and still trekking along with my completely unrestored and out of tune but awesome bone button Lachenal. No cash right now, but I feel like the richest guy on earth discovering what can be done with this wonderful instrument!!! I'm just a musician therefore no beans to count... Give me a gig!
