    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.

    One of the confounding factors is that it is your brain and imagination that tells you what you are hearing, not your ears . . . something sounds good because you want it to, not because it is.
    it's got to be this way because that's how I want it to be, and I refuse to accept that an alternative may be better.
