    Landfill Harmonic

    I saw this story about kids who formed a symphony playing only homemade or recycled instruments. The human spirit is an amazing thing and the need to create is indomitable.

    That is wonderful!
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    Wow!! I'm really glad I watched that. I just made a post about my favorite neck carves, which is so incredibly trivial compared to this.

    Inspiring...

    I have my daughter's old student grade violins in 1/8, 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 sizes... I bought them off e-Bay when she first started playing. It was cheaper than renting, and I figured I'd sell them when she out grew them. I never got around to doing that. They are collecting dust in the basement... I'm going to try to send them to this organization...

    Shawn, This is an amazing video/story. I have a few instruments that are not working right as well as some strings, etc. I'm going to look into sending them theses items.
