    This is one of those events that changes music from "something you do" into a part of someone's soul.


    Pass that mojo on.

    Thats awesome! Ironically my nephews are also 4 and 7. I keep it in the back of my mind that if later on down the road they decide to play guitar, I'd like to do the uber cool uncle thing like you've just demonstrated. I promise they'll never forget what you did :aok

    Just hooked my niece up with a axe, she is 14 and is obsessed like her uncle was at that age. I dont know who is happier.
