Yes, Thomas.  Press any key.   Keep it up, it took me 6 weeks.

Jabes, 2 bits is a quarter of a dollar.  There is a coin called a quarter.   This mini song MAY be out of date regarding the price.  I think it's gone up to about 80 bits or more.

how much is 2 bits?

Comment by Thomas "Duck" Petry on July 17, 2012 at 10:28am

Played on "any string"? Is that like when the compooper says "press any key"? I'm still looking for the key labeled "any".

Good lesson plan, another week or so I think I may be good enough to play this.

We will call it even if Wes mentions us on the Ed Sullivan show.

Unfortunately, my wife has run off with the check book. I have made up the balance due in wooden nickels.

Wes, that amp was made by some guy from NC and formerly of PA.

ED!  You may be the world's oldest child prodigy if you learned the lesson that fast.   The royalty comes to $15.43.  Let's call it an even $15.00.   Did the crowd go wild?

I tried this while busking tonight.  I will send a check for the royalty.  What % of $0 do you want?

You're welcome, Wes.  You can do it.  Everybody says you can still learn simple things.

Purty good, Clock.  Nice hair cut.  Loooking charp.  Have you mastered this piece yet?
