Nothin' Competes With an ELECTRIC Guitar

Today's post is about Elliott. Has been taking acoustic guitar lessons for about a year. For the most part, practice has been completed with little enthusiasm. About 2 months ago, Mike decided to buy himself an electric guitar. As soon as Elliott saw the amp come out of the box, guitar became his favorite thing (after soccer)!

He's been spending an hour a day on the guitar! In fact, I have to pull him off of it in the morning to get him to school. He is also happier about playing his acoustic.

He has taken his acoustic to school to play the theme from Titanic. Below are two videos of him "jammin" with dad. My advice for moms having trouble getting their kid to practice on a musical instrument, get something electric that makes weird and LOUD noises!
