    Current Setup:
    Not really a player--I have been building violin-family instruments for 17 years, now, (only one double bass, so far) and learning to play a little as well. Primarily hymns, by ear.
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    I lead music services with a 12-string guitar, and play violin/viola for personal pleasure.
    Influences and Teachers:
    I really like listening to Gary Karr, Edgar Meyer and their ilk, but I am not a bassist-- I'd just like to be able to make instruments that sound that good. :-)
    Hobbies and Interests:
    Building violins, violas and other violin-family instruments
    44 years pyaing guitar-- still not much good. :)
    40 years teaching Bible. Not bad at that... co-pastoring a couple of small congregations.
    35 years welding, fabrication, teaching welding and related subjects. Pretty good at that...nationally certified as an instructor, inspector and supervisor.
    35 years married to the same wonderful woman. Getting better that that all the time, with her help.
    17 years building violin-family instruments. So far, one bass, two cellos, 11 violas, 11 violins and 6 five-string fiddles. Gaining on this one, instrument by instrument.
