4. The guitar, or bass, or whatever

is resting on the ground like a 'cello, but at an angle.

... in the Arizona Balalaika Orchestra (pictured below -- he's on the left). Heavily involved
in the Tucson Friends of Traditional Music and the Tucson Folk Fest, he also sits in and plays
traditional stand up bass with an old-timey local string band with the GREAT name, The
Determined Luddites.

I think he may be about 6'5" tall, so it looks a little more proportional with him.

One of the NICEST people you're likely to ever meet.
