NGD(for my daughter)

My 12yr old daughter recieved this peavey predator plus exp for christmas from "Santa". Last years model, but unused, hangtags, not a scratch, MSRP $400, got it for $175. Nicest quilt top for one of these i've seen. After polishing the frets, cleaning the fretboard, new d'adarrio 9's, set the action low, plays like a dream. Neck feels like a baseball bat, but the sustain is insane! I strummed an E chord and held it, it rang for 25 seconds. I was kinda hoping she wouldn't like it(but she loves purple) waddaya gonna do? I guess I'll be content just to borrow it once in a while.

Re: NGD(for my daughter)

Actually, I got her this one for 3 reasons:

1. she wanted an electric
2. she wanted something purple
3. I wanted my recent custom build back(see "samurai")

I saw that AAA quilt top, the purple, and the price, sold! "Best Dad Ever!" TOOT-TOOT!

And now I gotta deal with my 9yr old son with his "I wanna Gibson V!"

Is that ALL?

Re: NGD(for my daughter)

I tried asking him "how are you supposed to practice it with that shape?"
His response "I'm not gonna practice it, I'm gonna PLAY it!" Spoken like a true GUITAR GOD(future).

Wish me luck!

Re: NGD(for my daughter)

Your kids are awesome!

I can only hope that in the years to come when I have kids (I'm only 17), they will want to play guitar as well. Or at least SOME musical instrument.

How did you guys do it (talking to RGT and IrishIbby)?

At a young age, expose them to music (from baby years). When they hit 6 or 7, make it mandatory to try (<-- emphasis on try) an "easy" instrument like piano, guitar, violin. Many music schools will have a couple of trial lessons free or at a small fee. Heck you can have an instrument at home they might like playing with (JEM, LesPaul 60s). Try to gauge how much they like it (and ask them), etc etc. They may not like it and you simply decide if it is a rule to play or not. I've been lucky in that my kids both enjoy music and play instruments as well (violin and piano). They do NOT, however, enjoy my type of music.

Answering for my case.

At a young age, expose them to music (from baby years). I think this is important. When they hit 6 or 7, make it mandatory to try (<-- emphasis on try) an "easy" instrument like piano, guitar, violin. Many music schools will have a couple of trial lessons free or at a small fee. Try to gauge how much they like it (and ask them), etc etc. They may not like it and you can just have another child. I've been lucky in that my kids both enjoy music and play instruments as well (violin and piano). They do NOT, however, enjoy my type of music.

Re: NGD(for my daughter)

The Arts are in our genes. I write(nothing published yet) and play everything I can get my hands on. Presently teaching myself:
Piano
Violin(is hard!)
Bass
Guitar
Congas and Bongos(5 in the air)
and as soon as I score a good starter kit, Drums

Wife is a poet and artist, paints, pencils, charcoals, pastels
Kids get bored, and seeing how much fun we have w/ the arts, they try it all too.
It's all about exposure. I took my kids to GC before christmas, and let em run wild. They played just about everything in the store. You'd think we walked into the Wonka Factory from the looks on their faces. The staff was happy to see us go, I just prayed the whole time that they wouldn't break anything.
