How fortunate your grandson is to have you to teach him guitar! No one in our family plays an instrument although a few are decent singers — not me though, completely tone deaf — but my granddaughter has the best voice and certainly the most unique.

Yes, the performer was both gracious and generous. He said he was jealous of my granddaughter’s voice because his is mediocre at best forcing him to write songs to be compatible with his limited range. All his songs were original, many in the Florida folklore genre. He was an old hippy type, just enjoying what he does, happy to tell a story through song, willing to help and encourage a fledgling singer.

Thanks so much for reading and commenting, Mark.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
