Two weeks ago I got weary of cooking every night for myself and decided that it was too time consuming, so on my ritual Sunday afternoon grocery store trip I shopped for the would be ingredients in one giant kettle of soup that would last me through the entire week of building classical guitars. My soup making skills leaned particularly hard on my Peace Corps experience in Jamaica.
Classical Guitarist Parker Scinta
I am looking forward to hosting classical guitarist Parker Scinta at our Solo Guitar Night this Monday, February 18, 6:30pm at Perk Up.
Today I was staring down my miter joints as I inlayed the purfling in one of my classical guitars. It's a very exhausting thing - applying the binding and purfling to a guitar. Of course, it would be a lot easier if I didn't care about the outcome. It was about 3pm, and like lots of people in my time zone, I was beginning to lose concentration.
It's good to be productive. Some of it is hard work and some of it is ingenuity. By the end of this week I will have a couple of guitar frames hanging in my humidity room ready to get fitted for both their top and back. It's so much faster than I had previously been building guitars, yet my process has changed very little.
