    It appears the girl in the 1st pic was mugged by the guy in the 2nd pic. He stole her guitar.

    No. She plays rhythm and then hands it off to him for the leads. You can tell he's playing a solo because his mouth is open.

    The alley is the best place to learn to play in all 12 keys.

    I guess it all works out in the mix. People will choose who they play with based on their knowledge. Ultimately I guess people putting limits on themselves makes it easier for people that don't to get better opportunities in life. We all draw lines somewhere I guess, music isn't any different. Play what you want to play! :D

    So am I actually learning in the alley or are you saying there is a different skillset needed when you set up in an alley?

    Since I learned to play in a cul de sac I knew no matter how much I honed my skills as a guitarist, no matter how many hours I put into it, no matter how many "alley" hats I owned, I would never have the grit and soulful musicianship that comes from growing up and learning in the alleys.

    Once you graduate from the Alley, you can play on the Street.

    I would enjoy this more with a strap on. Harmonica that is.

    Learning how to play an instrument in an alley is the ultimate goal of a true musician. Nothing else is as important. I mean, if you can't play in an alley, what will you do when you end up in an alley with your instrument?
