Of course, what I'd really do if I wanted to spend all night fighting off girls would be to join a band instead of making instruments. My (single) guitarist friends tell me that life in that particular fast lane is good!
Funnily enough, I was talking yet again about starting a band the other night over beer with a 22-y.o. singer who was really keen. We would call it 'Dokukinoko', which means 'poisonous mushroom' and do mostly rock and punk. Imagine a cute Japanese babe screaming 'Fell in love with a girl' by the White Stripes into a mic at a thousand and one decibels in an underground club. Sadly, it was probably only the alcohol making us take the idea seriously...
I knew there were rivers, just figured rowing wouldn't be a big thing...
Well if you told them that you'd hand made the guitar you just played, you'd have no time to escape the ensuing avalanche...
Well you've got nothing to lose, try it and see what happens
