    ...UAS! I bought my 4 year old son a Mahalo to tool around on a month or so ago. I tried to show him chords to play but, being a four year old, he would rather just tool around on it. Well, the other day, my concert flea came in from MGM and as soon as my son sees it, he says that he wants...

    Tenor Tuning help

    I was wondering if someone could clarify something for me. I am learning to play by using sites like this but am also taking lessons. My instructor is mainly a guitar teacher-he is very nice and a great guitar player but I feel he teaches me from a guitar aspect. I am playing a Bushman Jenny...
