Love that middle photo of your son. Man, he looks serious. You've got you the next Stevie Ray Vaughan there! :D

If you know something better than Rock and Roll, I'd like to hear it - Jerry Lee Lewis

Funny thing with a couple of my grandkids - they like hearing me play guitar for a few minutes, but then their attention tends to wander. If I get a slide out and start playing up and down the fretboard, though, they absolutely love it! I've managed to get them to sit down and put a guitar on their laps, given them a slide and said, "make some noise!" They both seemed to pick up the knack of sliding up and down the strings without being too heavy handed - I haven't tried to actually teach them anything yet, at their ages (one of them's five, the other's not yet two!) it's all about having a bit of fun. I'm thinking of buying the five-year old a half-size guitar for Christmas - now I'm thinking, ukulele.

Here's a pic taken a couple of years ago of one of them - he was about three then. Look at the concentration!

He also likes the keyboard........

If you make it fun for them, at a young age, they'll probably take it more seriously when they get a little older. That's my theory, anyway, for what it's worth.

:D :D :D

Cool pics by the way Slej, are you a photographer of sorts?

"Of sorts," yeah; enough to do some bartering now and then, and I've had a couple things published. Fun hobby. Thanks. 8)

Thanks Wes; he's a hoot to watch playing air guitar too! :)

I used to say that I especially like children sautéd in a garlic sauce. But now I've got three boys...19,almost 17 and almost 15...al musicians. I've never felt so proud as when I jam with the fellas! Worth all the diaper changing, I guess... :?

I got my first instrument at about that age. It was a little ukelele and my parents say I loved it and could even play a few simple melodies on it. I moved to the piano a few years later. I think the ukelele is a good idea.
