Ever have one of those moments when you could just smack yourself in the head with a mallet. Well I had one last month and have been paying for it ever since. My son wanted to learn to play an instrument so he could get into the school band. He had tried playing a trombone when in elementary school and didnt really seem to like it and eventually gave up his career playing instruments. Now the boy has decided he wants to start all over again and learn to play an electric guitar. I’m sure this was brought on by his obsession with playing rockband and guitar hero with his friends. Anyway to make a long story short I decided to give in and let him start playing an instrument again. This time however instead of going out and buying him a new one we found some nice clearance used instruments online at an ebay store. He picked out a pretty nice electric guitar, amp and stand for half the price It would have cost me at a local music shop. Well needless to say once he got that new guitar in his hand he hasnt put it down since. I’m now dreading the endless screeching and not so musical sounds coming from his room. Oh well I guess we’ll chalk this one up to another lesson learned the hard way.
