The last 3 trips to the Guitar Store and he has forgotten all about the drums...
he will come back around. What kid doesn't want to play the drums.
The type of kid that wants to grow up to be a musician!
Sorry, couldn't resist.
At least he is still interested in music!
Just cant get over the the 6 string... Hopefull one day he will realize that the thump and boom make the butts move.
The more pressing issue here is why would you let him loose on a drum kit, when it has been shown that every time a drummer plays, their iq goes down a little.
On a serious note, nice Coronado II!! Can we have some more pics of that thing?
I'd feel traumatized too. Stay strong.
Sure. That was my dads working guitar. He played pretty much till the day he died.
Don't worry you still have time! My dad started me on guitar and I fell into the low end
He has been interested in the drums since about 18 months old.
If I put him down at GC he would make a b-line to the drum department.
Wore out 2 rock band drum pads for the WII. Figured I would get him a real 7 piece set for his birthday in Nov. No such luck - now its all Guitar this and Guitar that.
Some of it is got to be my fault, Ive been playing a lot of SVR and Lightnin' Hopkins lately. In some ways its great when you hear a 8 year old singing House is a Rockn.
Nowhere else I rather be!
Look on the good side, his guitar will be great to jam with, and you get to play bass with your son, awesome!!!!
There is that!
Side note: Should see mom run out of the room when I play Tush or Pearl Neckless... And yes he sings them..
Why would you need help or why would you 'force' him to bass? When you are forcing your kid to play bass instead of guitar, you are failing as a father, IMHO.
So what the kid is enthousiastic about the guitar, if he likes it he should play the heck out of it! My dad forced me into soccer and other sports, hated everything about it...
Kids mostly lose enthousiasm and spirit when you're forcing them into hobbies/music... So don't be that kind of dad, for your sake and your kid's.
Wow, someone missed the humor in this thread.
It could be much, much worse! At least he likes SRV and not Justin Beiber!!
If he likes one turntable that's great - if he wants two... look out!
Wow , he's playing his late Grandpa's guitar? That is moving man! I'd love to hear a sample of him singing ZZ's tush that must be ROTFL !!
I hear ya! I learned to play on that guitar as well.
I wish I could record him singing. Every time I break out the mics or the personal voice recorder, he clams up. That is new as well. There was a time he would just start belting out Long Neck Bottle or Fireman. Now he gets all shy.
I have to wonder if this is just the new stage in life because he has now decided all girls are icky except his mama.
You're winning. As long as he has interest in music, you're doing well.
My older daughter (14) has never taken to an instrument, despite my not-so-subtle prodding. However, she is developing a very good singing voice.
My younger daughter (almost 8) loves to pound mercilessly on our cheap-@$$ drum kit, but playing a steady beat that I can play along with doesn't hold as much interest for her. She can play a few simple 4/4 or 8/8 patterns pretty well when she puts her mind to it.
Ehh.. Drums are just churched up metronomes, I'm not even sure why this is an issue.
You need to play with some better drummers.
