I ran into this video yesterday and I thought how much we debate around gear... I smiled to myself and realized how happy I am with having instruments to play on!

Huge respect fro those people. This is what makes us feel soooo "goods-wasting". I feel shame thinking I need this I need that. They just prove something precious - power of human creativity and will

It's very difficult to explain how many mixed feelings I have when I see this video. There are two different stories behind it as Monica said.

Exactly - that's why I thought it's a good reminder to us all that if you want to make music, you will find a way and if sometimes you crave for an expensive piece of gear and you want to ponder yourself, all you have to do is take a look at this vid smile.gif

Awesome, very inspirational Cosmin, I am so gratefull that I have a Guitar at all... ohmy.gif
But it also shows us something: "Instruments are like Tennis Racketts, their sound depends on how you play them"

Oh yes indeed smile.gif It takes a great deal of motivation to be able to get some decent towards great sounds out of such an improvised instrument. Let's face it, even though they represent a solution, I see them as a mid ground towards some nice instruments that these kids should receive for their ambition and hard work.

The flipside of the coin would be - if they receive nice instruments, how will they stay special and famous regarding their concept of using recycled materials for their instruments? Or maybe they don't want that... too many questions and possibilities - right? smile.gif

Wow, really cool stuff Cosmin. It's amazing to see what people can do when they have the passion to make music, even if they don't have the money.

I guess most of us should feel extremely fortunate right now!

I sure do smile.gif I have times when I think I would need this and this and that, but when I see such a movie, I somehow manage to settle my gear cravings down laugh.gif
