Dragged out my 12-string Taylor 355 acoustic guitar tonight, which I rarely play. Mostly I'm an electric guitar player. Hmm, one of the strings was broken. Here's the weird part: I bought this guitar in 1999. 21 years ago. This guitar is old enough to fight in a war, and old enough to *drink*. I've never changed the strings. The strings that are on it are the strings that came with it when I bought it in 1999. *hangs head in shame*. Even with a broken string, it still sounds wonderful.
I've heard of "paper circuits" but the examples I'd seen up to now were very simple, with copper tape used to lay out wires. This guy has a different take, and takes it much further. https://www.ciat-lonbarde.net/paper/index.html and here's one of his simpler circuits with some instructions that describe the process: https://www.ciat-lonbarde.net/paper/man/lilsid.gif Looks like an interesting prototyping technique. I imagine if you painted the paper with epoxy afterward, it might be fairly robust.

Dovydas has done these live concerts each night for the past 45 nights. Pretty interesting if you're into guitar playing. Here's tonight's livestream: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUN4trIvHAs
