“That is an excellent choice!” you told the thirteen year-old staring up at you. He carefully held the neck of an Ibanez acoustic guitar in his left hand while his right supported the bottom. He sat on the stool you had pulled over and tentatively strummed the strings. They let out a soft harmonious riff.
“Nice! Now try this.” You moved the fingers on his left hand around the different frets. “This is a G chord,” you explained, pressing his fingers against the strings. “Try strumming it now.”
The boy complied, and grinned at the new sound. “So cool,” he whispered, staring at his hand in awe.
