Got this video text from one of my guitar student’s moms. Teddy was jamming at home, getting ready to play for his great-grandmother who is turning 94 today.
I sent her an easy tab version of “Happy Birthday” so he could play it for her tonight.
When the Music’s Urgent
I get the occasional emergency call from students during off-hours. “I’m at my friend’s house, how do I play this song?” “I forget this riff, how does it go?” And, of course, “I have a party tonight – how to I play ‘Happy Birthday’?”
As long as I have the time to answer, I do. Because these musical moments are an important, memorable part of life – and really, to me – what music’s all about.
Happy weekend, all. Pick up that guitar, uke, or banjo and sing with someone!
