    Honestly, there are tons of guys around here that will do lessons for like $20 a pop. Just once a week with the right teacher would help tremendously. If that's still too tight of a budget, I guess my only other advice would be "don't get in his way." I picked it up myself at first, and then learned more later on in school. If he's really enjoying it he'll keep at it, and that's really all you need for any sort of artistic expression.

    Don't worry about that!I won't "get in his way",I wish my dad was able to afford a instrument for me when I was a wee lad,but then again I didn't have the patience to learn on my own,my son is teaching me how to read tabs so I can try to "catch up" to him!
  4. A good book to learn theory or one of music he likes could tide him over for the summer maybe. Has he considered joining a band? That'll make you better and is great fun. There isn't any great substitute for a good teacher though. As long he's interested and still into it, then that's what matters.
  5. Probably the best thing to do for him is to get yourself a pair of noise cancelling headphones, and if applicable, a set for your wife too!
