Spent the evening with two elderly ladies from my church. One said that she regretted never learning to play a musical instrument and that she would have loved to learned the guitar.

So.......I made a big pot of Jambalaya and she made a pan of Craw-fish Cornbread and I brought a 3 string cigar box guitar in open G.

Before the night was over she was strumming and sliding G-C-D chords with confidence and her smile was as big as the house.

Love this CBG life!!

Thanks Darryl. I think she will love it. She already has that "music soul" that we all need. Such a wonderful way for you to tell her "love ya". And thanks for the add.
