After he finished his chores at night, Blas would spy through the key hole, and observe Juan making guitars. One day, he broke the lock and went into the shop to observe all the details of guitar making that he still was unsure of, and although he lost his job on this account, once he had been able to make these observations, he was able to begin making guitars.  In addition to guitars, he made bandurrias and laúdes.
