One can get a cheap shit guitar and get pretty good on it.

Why the fuck can't I get my hands on a cheap sitar then??? What if I don't want nice carving and beautiful tuning pegs and who-knows-what... just a nice, meat-and-potatoes instrument like the $100 Ranger acoustic that saw me learn how to play guitar?!?

Well, Rogue puts out a $300 one, which for a Sitar is dirt cheap. I have never played a traditional Sitar, just the electric variety.

This is a wacky, but cool link, about Sitars:

Can't think of anywhere around Perth where you might get one. There's a bloke down the foreshore of Rockingham who sometimes plays a sitar. Might be worth an investigative looky.

Rockingham?!

Hehehe..... Perth shits me some times. It feels depressing living on the Parson's Nose of the planet.

Well y'know what I said when I were talkin' to Chad and Kristen (or however you spell her name) - I've no idea where these other bloody places are!

You tried eBay? I know that sucks but it's done me well in the last couple of instances.

Oh I had a depressing look at eBay, one guy was selling one for a very cheap price but he's in Queensland and is apparently allergic to interstate shipping...

If he's only interested in local sales, why doesn't the stupid bastard just put it in his local paper??? Instead of taunting me like this!

And you know what they say about people from Queensland, eh?

They get tropical cyclones regularly and fuck up our banana stock.

Maybe he'll send me a sitar if I send him bananas.

Heh, seems unlikely seeing as those banana lollies don't count :)

Found that - don't know if you're interested price wise. And it's in Freeeeeeeeeeeeemantle! Dun, dun, dun.

Y'know what's cool? We can say city names and places and nooooooooo one knows what we're talking about. Take that everyone else.

I'll keep me eyes peeled down here, cap'n.

If I sell my nephews Mercedes I might be able to afford a banana.

"Y'know what's cool? We can say city names and places and nooooooooo one knows what we're talking about. Take that everyone else."

Hahah yeah.... I feel proud.

"I'll keep me eyes peeled down here, cap'n."

Indeed!

$450 ain't bad - might be a piece of crap, but to follow my own philosophy with instruments - buy *ANY CRAP* and when you can make that thing sound good, get a good instrument.

I thought we (yes, we) TAFE students were supposed to be poor?

Except Vicci, the girl that I was talking about with the INDOOR POOL! AND EVERYTIHN!I

Too right though. You could always rob him. I would. Just like I'm contemplating buying myself a Squier Telecaster and being a 'musician' of some sort.

But like I said - I've got Rockingham covered. Yay. Total yay.

Also - Hay Street Mall, Bell Tower, The Esplanade and...Leederville!

I believe Ze Bonk knew what you were talking about...just couldn't see the point in asking Ravi Shankar.

Although I would ask his deliciously attractive daughter Norah Jones for a 'lesson'.

Yes, I could tell you about Ravi, haha....

I'm more interested in Anoushka.

Mmm, tough ask that. Although I did enjoy her inclusion at Concert for George.

It was a hell of a performance on her part, actually. All round a *really* good show - and I cannot understand people who hate Paul's performance on the uke...
