Extending the family Uncle John? And with some favoritism! It is cool when the realization dawns on them that they are actually making music. I never tire of it.

Yup, what my favorite nephew, Kale, said.

Thanks so much Kale! I hope this gives others here ideas of what they can do to introduce others to the joy of making music with a simple stringed instruments. This isn’t rocket science!!!

The realization on their faces that they're actually playing along is so great. A++ Doug. This is what CBN is all about.

We will try to keep that smile on your face Alan! It is fun to get out and show others what cigar box guitar slinging is all about.

Glad you liked it BrianQ! I never know exactly what is going to happen when I have volunteers come forward, but some how it just works out. And it’s always fun. Hopefully, the Slingers stirred up some interest. Time will tell.
