When dad starts taking private guitar lessons
This evening I’ve been working away on my computer enjoying guitar music from the floor above. Daddy T has had his first ever guitar lesson–a much overdue event considering the fact that he’s been the proud owner of a cupboard full of guitar equipment, including two guitars.
