They have some used Behringer D115W powered speakers on sale at GC in highland park. I don't want to pay shipping, so would you mind grabbing those for me Brian, and driving them down to KS?

that GC is about 5 miles from my office yo.

Dammit!  :)

 

 

My son turns 2 on Friday and he is freaking obsessed with guitars!  He's getting his first real axe for his birthday.  We picked this up local today, the guitar, amp, strap, cable and picks for $125.  The guitar's intonation sucks and doesn't want to adjust much, and I think the small scale makes it hard to play for me because any slight bend really raises the pitch.  But it's the perfect size for him and he'll beat it up anyway.  And it's better than just a crappy toy guitar.  He's gonna lose his mind.  :D

I'll see what I can get.  :)  Hopefully I can get him to hold this guitar right-handed.

I'll try to persuade him now, but as he gets older if he wants to play lefty then whatever feels natural to him.

The way he's holding it is near perfect - he may be a natural lefty

Or he watches his dad and mirrors him.

Not to discount the kid's natural proclivities, but how many kids that age are "naturally" that good at any high level skills? I don't want to discount nature, but playing an instrument has more to do with practice and "nurture" for all but extreme outliers.

I agree.  I could have learned guitar lefty when I started out, just as easily as right-handed I'd guess.  But I'll be damned if he wants to hold it any other way right now.  :)

I've mentioned before about how I teach my niece guitar. She originally picked up the guitar lefty, probably 3-4 years ago (she is 7). I just told her how to hold it and she was fine. She knew no different. Interestingly pertinent to this subject, on Monday at her lesson she asked me why anyone would play the guitar "upside down"
