    Re: Bach Strad...rebuild or not?

    I only practice a bit - with the pressures of work and family - and play along to a great group of guys on a CD, and nothing else. Playing in public? Almost never, only occasionally in church - the opportunity just isn't there.

    But I love what I do get to do.

I had to find creative ways of playing - a friend's house, when everyone was out, practice mute, even contemplated building a shed on our cliff of a garden lol!
    Sounds like the story of many trumpet players. Wife said it was her or the horn. Still, sometimes late at night when I'm laying in bed listened to an old jazz station, I thing to myself, I sure do miss that wife.

    Seriously though, Sorry to here about the marriage. Glad you are playing again.

It just isn't any fun to play without performance/partners. My kids are too young to "get it" and the wife is not musical. Thanks again.

    My Wife is not musical

    I just play for myself
