I was down in Pennsylvania for a wedding, and staying at my aunt and uncle’s house. Early Saturday morning, I got up and went for a 5 mile run. When I returned, a whole bunch of garage sales had opened up. It was big street sale involving multiple streets. Cool! I stopped at a few of them on my way back to the house. I didn’t see anything I needed. I stopped at the house, changed into regular (non-running) clothes, and headed out walking from garage sale to garage sale.
One sale had a trumpet and a clarinet. But they wanted over $100 each for those, and the odds of me learning to play either one is remote. I played clarinet in elementary school. I really sucked at that. They actually kicked me out of the band. LOL!
Towards the end, I found one sale that had a crapload or guitar magazines. Most of them were Guitar For The Practicing Musician. That is a great magazine, and I have a bunch of issues in a box from when I learned to play the first time. The guy was asking 25 cents apiece. I did a quick count and there were over 60 magazines. I asked him how much he wanted for all of them. He said $10. So I bought them all for $10. I even got a couple magazine type binders (with Guitar printed on the side). It was tough carrying them all back to aunt and uncles house which was a few blocks away. At least they were all in a box.
When I got home last night, I went through them. They are all in pretty good shape. I counted 72 magazines. All except three or four magazines are Guitar For The Practicing Musician. I know I already have some of the issues. It will be fun to dig through them and find some new songs to learn.
