I have an 11 year old niece who is begging for a guitar. So I'm setting up my old Fender Gemini for her and sending it out, with the agreement that I will custom build/paint a guitar for her if she learns to play this one. She's such a little suck up I'd probably build her a dozen. Problem is her parents can't really pay for lessons. She's south of Chicago, well really south of Joliet, alright south of Morris. That's the other problem even if I coughed up for lessons Mazon is so far out there. So I'm looking for a good tool her dad can work with her on. He has played keys and some woodwinds so can probably help her quite a bit. I'm open to websites, video series and books. Any suggestions or success stories?
