ShortCircuit... have you tried Delcamp guitar forum? Might want to join and I'll meet you there... plenty of classical guitar music tabs, sheet music, guitar luthiers, guitar lessons, etc.... great place and I've been a member for a long time...

If I could do my life all over... I'd be a concert pianist and give up everything else, but still have a love of sailing...

Nick, you had a good mix of hobby and career. I wish I were not tone dead. I don't mind to have yours. My son recently graduated in Aerospace and works in Sikorsky now in CT.

However, if I could do it over, I would be a fireman. I can be called Hero and but yet I sitting at the firehouse 90% of time. Best of all, I can be retired at 45 and get paid the rest of my life. You can beat this deal.

rockDAWG... Thanks!!!

Yes music is my passion and it has shown up in my daughter and son... she playing piano since 3 years of age and did her first piano recital at University of Washington at age 6... my son is a classical trained first chair trombonist in three concert orchestras in Savannah... he is musically gifted with 'perfect pitch', he will be getting my sailboat here in Seattle when my assignment ends... my wife is a violin player and a Elementary school Special Education teacher in Savannah, GA.

Aerospace has been very good to me but it's just a job and although I'm good at it as I'm sure many others are... it is not where I thrive... I recently came back from China and had the opportunity to enlist at the Shanghai music conservatory and after being there 5 months became more the reason I wished I made music my lifelong career instead of engineering... but se-la-vie... we all need to live on with the choices we've made... glad your son is doing well, he has a rewarding career ahead of him, many challenges... Sikorsky at West Palm Beach, Florida is where I worked along with Pratt & Whitney (UTC Corporation) right out of FSU (1978)...

I know many firemen and policemen and they all love their jobs... I give them many kudos for the work they do and put their lives on the line for us! ++++1

All depends on where you are and what market you are in. My brother does quite well with a portrait and wedding business in Maui, but I would not want to try to make money at it here. Of course in Maui you can doe lots of wedding a week, as they are every day and only last a couple of hours for the most part.

Re: What are your other passions?

Oh forgot to add, shooting... Now I live on 32 acres (mostly wooded)... we have our horses at home, we also have a very nice (safe) area where I can re-learn to shoot with a certain level of accuracy. The silver one is the wives p238 .380(Christmas present for her in 2011)... the black one I just picked up during the "hype" is a p938 9mm... these are small (in size) weapons, and difficult to get accurate with... I am sure it'll come though. You know the zombies are coming right?

Re: What are your other passions?

Cross country skiing.

Gardening, I am the default chairman of a community garden, please somebody depose me.

Cooking, I will be eating spinach tonight picked from the community garden a few days ago, it was 20 deg F today and the spinach is still growing?

I work when a project interests me, and mentor or teach when anybody asks.

Bird watching, I should really bring a bird guide book with me when I sail.

This year I have promised myself to get back to painting.
