Due to a longer lasting tendinitis that started basically the week after my last update on this topic, I have so far not been able to work on this project. My arm is better now so I expect to be really working on the project when back from our honeymoon that starts this coming week.
Good thing: My uncle has agreed to do the painting – so as soon as I’m back from China we will sit together to decide on the final layout.
I have been traveling since I got the kit, so no real progress other than thoughts (but isn’t imagination a real big portion of the fun? – Like sports – half of it is mindset, that’s the 50% I do)
Anyway – I did promise a pic – so here it is:
I did not yet talk to my uncle (see previous post) on this, but I did have some thoughts – if you want to challenge me with better ideas – go ahead and post:
My current view on design (I will of course also take any recommendation on tech stuff – but in the end I will try to match my own sound expectations) is right now an abstract pic showing a view from stage into audience; i.e. people, light, night sky.
Challenge me – just use the comment feature. Final word will of course be with the my uncle who has to do the art.
I should be home this weekend (at least for part of it) and will then unpack more of the kit and share details.
…since I found (made?) the time to blog here (or actually also on some other blogs I write for).
Anyway – as this is my day off (kind of – at least it’s my birthday) this is the chance to promise myself to blog more.
=> New project: I’ll build my own guitar!
Will post pics soon; my great wife followed my wish and gave me a “build-your-own-guitar-kit” as today’s present. I had thought about doing this for quite a while already and now decided it’s finally time to stop thinking and just start doing.
Although this first attempt at building an own instrument is based on a kit, I already have some things in mind to really make this piece kind of unique – i.e. I will ask my uncle (he’s a great artist – check www.maler-helmut-ried.de) to paint it using his fantastic abstract methodology. I really hope he loves the project and will support (I guess he will).
Don’t know how long this will take, I guess 3-4 months should be feasible if no real issues, but one never knows when starting something completely new.
Stay tuned on pics & progress report while I will occupy my spare time with reading on how others overcame obstacles while doing/trying the same.
