    I think it was the first time we used this special Squire Strat on stage. It has lipstick pickups and we love it! My 10 year daughter Mina and we both feel it is the most reliable guitar for us if we play on stage. She asked the luthier to give her guage 12 strings but we could only get 11s in our city. The luthier was pretty skeptical to see a little kid wanting strings with this such thick strings.

    Hope you enjoy the footage. Let us know what you think. ;-) She added a twist in the the chorus.

    I'm 37 and still jamming with my dad! I'm so happy he always had instruments around the house.

    Your Mina is much better than I was at that age.

    Your dad must be happy too. I know he is. Mina just started young. Plus she doesn't like the idea of smartphone too much so we play the guitar. We didn't have smartphones too when we were younger and things were not that bad.... ;p Perhaps your kids will like jamming with dad and grandpa too one day!

    It was actually her first time singing on stage. We mostly do surf (almost only). But becos of this covid 19 thing, back in Feb and March, we had too much free time at home so I decided perhaps it's time to do something a bit more complicated. She tells me surf is fun but metal is very cool. And now, we do Jimi Hendrix...I hope she gets to try different genres of music too...

    It's never too late.

    For me, it's give and take. If she wants something, she has to show me she deserves it. But I think she knows she wants her old man to be happy (cos she knows i am happy when we jam or learn a new song or practice together) and all kids want mom and dad to feel happy. So it wasn't too difficult.

    We didn't start with surf. But, in my opinion, no singing was involved, and it was relatively not as complex so I think kids and pick it up faster if they start with surf. Ofc, i am not saying surf music is easy.

    We played at her school once, and played songs like We are the Champions, Hotel California, I hate myself for loving you...after the gig, no one else gives her trouble no more. Now she knows playing the guitar could be pretty cool. So she began to put in effort. Good luck Eddie!

    P.S.: by the way, i wanted her to learn some English so for Mina to do some English songs was not a bad idea. Killing two birds wtih one stone!

    Perfect, love seeing her play along with dad. Great job getting her interested and spending the time to teach her.

    Thank you, Dana! It's a lot of fun and I feel grateful she likes playing along with me. I am helping some friends to do the same so their daughters can play the guitar or the bass with them too. Kids grow up so fast. I better try hard to spend more quality time with her.
