Hello everyone. I seldom login, but today I saw something that people might get a chuckle from.

I was going through amazon looking for "violin stuff". Anything violin. Rosin, strings, cases, pegs, tail piece...everything. Then an electric violin caught my eye. So, being the inquisitive shopper, I entered "Electric Violin" and started a new query for those. I narrowed my search for 4 stars and above. Further narrowed it to $200-$1200 dollars. About 150 different items appeared.

I sat down with a nice cup of coffee and started just looking. About halfway through, there was an item that really almost made me spit out my coffee. A wood Chipper. Now, The person who did the key word for search engines certainly knows the frustrations of playing a violin. violin-studentbunny-headbang

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.
