So last night my 11 year old son and I were in the living room and he picked up my wife's uke and started plucking on it. After about 5 minutes he asked if he could see my HB II. I said sure and got it off the wall for him. I showed him the pentatonic scale and a D chord and it was a difficult stretch for him so I handed him a strat and the neck was better suited to his hand size. He plucked out the scale a couple of times and then made the D chord and strummed it until he could hear all three notes clearly. He then looked at me and said "yeah dad...the guitar is my instrument". So we fooled around on the guitar until he had to go to bed...awesome night.
