As a guitarist, composer, producer, teacher, and guitar technician, Brant Grieshaber has touched thousands of lives -- the guests at events graced by his elegant classical guitar playing or enlivened by his jazz combos, the students who have profited from his dedication and patience, the colleagues who have relied on his skill and inventiveness in the recording studio, the readers of his books, the fans of his recordings of original compositions, and the fellow guitarists who have come to trust him for high-quality and timely work on instruments he treats like his own.
This week, Brant lost all of his electronic equipment when a frozen pipe in his apartment burst, collapsing the ceiling of his studio and flooding the room. His recording equipment, his amp and preamp, which included guitar sounds he’d spent years programming and fine-tuning, the music scores and recordings stored on his computer, his speaker cabinets, his guitar-pedal setup, with its custom switches he’d built himself — all destroyed. And with the studio unusable for some time, he’ll be unable to conduct the guitar lessons that are his chief source of income.
Can you spare a few dollars to help him rebuild and cover expenses until he's able to get back to doing the many jobs he does so exceptionally well?
