So our church was giving away a piano that was in the youth building. You might be wondering what condition a piano that a church is giving away might be in, that is a wonderful question.
The only stipulation was for the recipient to move it. Sounded GREAT to me. Just moving the little piano out and we get a FREE piano! Why NOT???
My husband, precious man that he is, was not so excited about my suggestion.
I do LOVE to play the piano and I hope I can teach my boys a couple of things on the right hand about playing too. I don't know the left too well, so I'm sticking with what I know. I don't really read the music that great, but like to make up songs. You know reading music is difficult when you really only can read what one hand plays. So, I just make up the songs. Not that I am that good at it, I just enjoy it. Long story is getting longer as opposed to shorter. Bottom line: he said yes.
Remember Gaucho Jorge? Ben recruited him to help us move the little piano, which didn't turn out to be little. It weighed a lot. Like about 600 pounds. I am not kidding.
They are strong. There were veins popping out of necks and grunts and man, a lot of sweat!
But, do you see that SMILE on Ben's face??????? What a guy!
I thought a little of this would shine her right up! It did. Very nicely.
This made me smile. Doesn't it look pretty!!! We think so. Now to get it tuned and to fix...
THESE! THEY ARE YELLOWISH DIRTY AND A BIT CHIPPED AT THE TIPS!!!
But I don't mind that, remember it is FREE!!!!!!! I was just wondering if any of you folks out there could help me know what to clean the keys with in hopes to restore them to the lovely white of days gone by. Locals, does anyone know of someone reasonable to tune it?
