Carlos has the burn to learn dobro guitar. The only problem is that he has no use of his fingers on either hand, so  I figured out a way to velcro the special slide to his one hand and a velcro pick like a thumb glove to his other, and voila! Smiles as big as the Grand Canyon.

Music soothes the soul again and a good day was had by all.


I moved my store to a new location. I am now at 3294 NE 33rd Street, Ft. Lauderdale, FL, at the end of Oakland Park Blvd and A1A. It is half a block west of Blue Jean Blues Night Club and also two blocks from the beach with art galleries, over a dozen small restaurants, and some cool little shops.

The new store offers twice the retail space, as well as rehearsal and lesson rooms. I plan on having open mic nights and music on the sidewalk on Friday and Saturday nights. All in all, it’s a new life style for me and my store, and I look forward to helping all of the South Florida musicians with their amps, guitars, and keyboards, as well as doing musical instrument repairs and sales. I am looking for consignment guitars and amps. I also want to connect with all the local luthiers and have a common place to sell locally-made instruments.
