Keeping Them Poor

Keeping Them Poor And Doesn’t Require Theft

Ah, the timeless wisdom of the Orient. True then and true today. 😆 And yeah, some of us know this truth, don’t we, Tyler?

    Hahahaha, yes! It is very true. My self-inflicted poverty and thriftiness prevents me from buying too many instruments, but I certainly drool over them and imagine "what if." I know many guitarists with thousands of dollars of frets and strings hanging on their walls.

    I thought you'd get a kick out of this. 😀 And yeah, between one of my wives' drum collection and my bass and harp, it gets a bit crazy and expensive.

  3. Tyler, the Portly Politico Says:

    Dang, I can only imagine how quickly the costs of a harp can skyrocket. Drums are a big money sink, too. I have been using my little short-scale Ibanez bass for years; I picked it up for $150. I need to invest in something a bit more professional, though, but I like what I'm able to do with that little bass.

    Oh yeah! My harp's a custom 32-string, lap/pedestal and pricey to redo. And again, yeah; the wife is a hand drummer, so we've a room full of bongos, congas, djembes at the like.

    Funny though! My bass too is a short-scale.I've a Hofner violin bass. But damn do those flatwound strings hurt my wallet.

    Dude, that is awesome. We'll have to jam sometimes.

    Ooooh, a Hofner! Very nice. I love my little short-scale Ibanez. It's super fun; my students call it the "Baby Bass," haha.
