My mom came to visit me this weekend and it was great. We met some very cool people who are going to "adopt" me and tell me places to go and people to meet and be there if I need anything. I have lots of support and I think it's great!
Monday after school, our class made a trip to go see Carl Becker, a prominent builder here in America. He is 91 years old and still building! He of course does some things different in the process of building. And he doesn't use a bending strap to bend his ribs. He uses lead! It was nice to have met him, but I think the only thing I regret is not playing one of his intruments or his dads. That was the only thing missing during the visit, yes he had great craftmanship, but I still don't know about the sound. Some people from the Strad magazine interviewed him recently and might be coming out with an article soon. Brian pulled out some of his old Strad magazines, and it seems they write an article about him about every decade.... tonight the guys and I are going out for chinese! :)
This weekend is a bluegrass show going on at the Cozy Cove which hasn't been open since I've been up here, so we will see how jumpin' that is.
