try and try again

My son is learning to play guitar. He’s had one since last summer but has been really frustrated because he has it in his mind that he wants to just pick it up and be good at it right away. Today Martha and I were talking to him about that and he spontaneously said, “OK, I’ll go get the guitar. Teach me.” So I got out mine and he picked up three chords today. I used the songs “Old Chunk of Coal” and “Try and Try Again” by Billy Joe Shaver to encourage him. He’s a fast learner!
