    its cause we are gear heads and also seek understanding in things.

    I used to work part time at a music store and the best if ever ran was when we had a bass player assistant manager (who was really the manager) myself and another salesman bass player. One of the reasons it seemed to work was because we all has Sound Reinforcement experience, studio experience either as a sit in or engineer, played Horns back in high school, or orchestral instruments, all played guitar as well, understood what polyphony meant regarding keys. It was a smooth operation. Now its run by a bunch of guitar players and I heard that they were going to be closing that location soon due to the poor numbers.

    I am an insurance adjuster, love it for the time off, second only to being a teacher.
