Sold a few guitars and made some new friends this weekend. The highlight for me was when my vendor neighbor Soaring Eagle came over after I had started playing a 3 string brownie pan guitar to ask me to turn it up and play more often because 1. it drew customers to not only my booth, but the booths around me; and 2. he just plain loved the music. Ducktail Run and the two other festivals going on in the county, the Jonesboro River Rally and Fairmount's James Dean Days always brings in huge crowds and it was a blast. I always enjoy watching the face on the guys who loudly say: "that's not a real guitar, it's something you hang on the wall." after I politely explain that it is a working man's instrument made in my shop and I'd not be ashamed to play it next to somebody playing a pricey guitar made in a guitar factory. They start to say something else but, by then, I've had the opportunity to plug it in and show them what it sounds like. After that, I have made not only a believer, but a new friend. Once they hear what such simple instruments can do, they are drawn in and want to know more. Some buy something, some don't. But they all have fun hanging out for a few. And they will look for me next year. Can't wait!.
