I am (6) years retired from the Omaha Public Power District. Since than I have played the hammer dulcimer, wood carving, collected ho trains and now since January 2017 been with Steve Adelson brain racking myself to coordinate two hands on a railboard stick. Believe me i am enjoying lessons. it is just getting my hands to work together. I know it just takes practice, practice and more practice. I will get it.

Ok..here goes...
I work full time as a craftsman/scenic artist. I tell people that we make "fake stuff look real". I do this at a theme park in Orlando...been at it for over 20 yrs now, I am also a semi-professional musician with my band Jupiter Groove and as a solo artist playing Native American Flute and Stick in solo settings. I also make Native American Flutes and sell them.

I bought an odd instrument last week called a Xaphoon made in Maui.
It looks very similar to a flute but sounds like a saxophone.

I've been playing saxophone for several years,
so this was a great way of making it portable.

If you are referring to the Xaphoon,

I found another video of it. I like the first tune that this guy plays.
