Earlier today I went to downtown San Francisco, and saw this bum playing music on his guitar which was missing 3 strings. He tried to play music while he was begging for money, and went up to him and gave him a pack of elixir strings that I just had gotten for free from my friend who works at guitar center. He said thanks and began to restring it on the spot. He was going to hug me but he was too dirty and he didn't.


Anybody else have a soft spot for other musicians who are struggling with their music?

awww that made me feel all warm inside (your story)


Thanks, I just couldn't take it anymore. He was trying so hard but who can play a song with only the G, E, and low E string? I had to help him out.

It's party time!

Way to go, dude. That's a really nice thing to do for someone, especially someone who is struggling musically. My respect for you goes out!

that was nice, but you can play plenty of things with only 3 strings, maybe no chords, but you could still be good

Very nice, TS. If the thought came to mind, I'd probably do the same thing.

I was in Charleston, SC a week or two ago, and I passed a couple of street buskers. I figured what the hell, so I threw some patronage their way.

Gotta keep fellow musicians on their feet. Support your own, know what I mean?

I know what you mean, I sometimes listen to musicians who aren't getting any attention due to the amount of break dancers that other people are giving attention too. If you've ever been down to fisherman's warf in SF you'll know what I mean.

There's usually quite a few buskers down at the farmer's market on weekends.

They all play nicer acoustics or mandolins than I have.
And wear more expensive clothes.

It suffices to say that my sympathy runs short.

I also figured that since he's not going to be spending money on new strings any time soon, I should give him my elixirs instead of the d'addario strings that I bought. Since elixirs last longer.

I would probably do the same thing but I've never really been in a situation like that so I don't know. It's great that you gave him string, and you gave him ELIXIRS, not some cheap strings.
#22
I was out late on new years eve with some mates, saw this hobo looking guy shredding his ass off on a cheap as guitar and amp on the main shopping street/mall in town. His lyrics were something like "I got a ****in 50 dollar amp!" and random yelling, so I stopped and gave him a few coins. My friends didn't like that I stopped, I thought what the hell as if just helping out a fellow guitarist. More people should help each other out.
