Guitar Lessons

She brings me my guitar last night, and goes, ”Mom, will you teach me again how to play the guitar?“

Me: ”Of course! It’s been awhile, but let me see…“

I take it from her, tune it, and start playing the intro to ”Hey, Joe“ by Jimi Hendrix.

She watches, smiles, and says, ”I bet this really gets the boys‘ attention.“

And I change chords, and say, ”Soooo, to kick things off, I‘m going to show you how to pluck out ‘Happy Birthday’.”
