There is a Tom Paxton song that I love called "Peace Will Come." The lyrics go like this:
My own life is all I can hope to control
Oh, let my life be lived for the good, good of my soul
Let it bring peace, sweet peace
Peace will come and let it begin with me.
Music is one way that we can help spread peace in the world. I am starting Instruments for Peace Project as a way to share my love of music and am hoping it will catch on as many others make instruments to play and share. Please join me. Make a string on a box and teach someone else to play a song. Or better yet...make two strings on a box and play a duet! I guarantee it will make you smile.
If you want to buy a kit, click on the link at the right for String on a Box kits. The cost is $5.00 which will get you the instructions, strings, hardware, frets, a template to show you where to place the frets and a songsheet with duets. If you can't afford that, just let me know and I will send you one for free.
