    My son and his friend are down here in my man cave today playing with all the instruments. I absolutely love watching and hearing what they do!

    Great to see them interested in music. Nice man cave by the way.

    Agree totally with DR, lovely to see kiddies connecting with musical instruments... especially when the allure of the Xbox and PlayStation may be more attractive to some of our little darlings!
    Good show.

    Last time that I had the Grandkids down to stay I was up in my music room banging away with 8 yr old grandson Liam working the drum machine, when in walked his sister Cloe (6yrs).
    Gave her a tambourine, but she was frowing like mad and looking all around my guitar. Then the penny/cent dropped. She was looking for a screen, or buttons to press. I gently explained that I had to work the strings to make the music work...no screen or buttons. She gave me a lovely smile and said "can I have a go?"
    " Go girl".
    Now every time they visit they leg it up to the room and make one helluva cacophony...but it's great fun to witness.

    I wish my girls would play. I have two dozen guitars. I tell them to take one and let's learn together.

    Nah ... Roblox is more important. Argh !!!!

    Y'all are so fortunate, I don't even have one guitar yet and I can't find a good one

    Why can’t you find a good guitar?

    My boys don’t really play that often. But every now and then they get the urge and I just enjoy that time!

    I'm sure there are millions of good guitars in Sydney. Just go get one. :)

    i wish, after I bought a bass and a bass amp my parents want to control my spending for a bit. Any advice for places to get good quality cheap guitars?

    Not sure how things work in Sidney, but here in the USA, Facebook Marketplace is a great source of good, affordable guitars. That and Craigslist.

    I've had some good guitars from eBay. The choice is vast, just go with what you can afford. Good luck.
