My nine year old has been taking guitar lessons, but he had never played an electric guitar before yesterday.
Picture it. A nine year old in khakis, pale yellow tie and blue blazer. School gym. Grandparents’ Day.
The music teacher hands him an electric guitar at morning rehearsal so he won’t be drowned out on his classical. In his debut performance, he rocks out before an audience with an average age of seventy-five.
The concert is followed by, “I need an electric guitar.”
