    yeah, it's an interesting job ......... I had built up a huge customer base in BR and did 3-5 a day 6 days a week.
    I know that sounds hard to believe but I had 2500 churches on my account list and about the most I can do is around 900 a year so I was always snowed under.
    And, of course, a LOT of repairs added to the time.

    I don't tune so much in Florida ..... it makes my hands hurt and they can even cramp up and not hold a pick or even work at all and playing is vital to my life.
    So when we moved I didn't try too hard to build a new client list plus that takes a piano store as a base of operations and with piano sales being so low, any tuners are pretty protective of their diminishing accounts.
    So here I only do a few a month .... but in BR I was probably the busiest tuner in the nation.

    Most I ever did in one day was at a factory piano sale and I did 9!

    I do kinda miss my customers though ..... you'd only see them once a year but you became friends and I had interesting customers ..... I even had one from Hiroshima whose grandmother was an atom bomb survivor.
    I tuned Huey Piano Smith's piano ..... I was Nick Saban's tuner ..... Governor Edwards ..... that guy that shot and killed the exchange student on Halloween .... ..... a large list of intersting folks.
    I do miss that.
    If you know the secret codes you can get by the mastering boss on level 8.
