Rockin' Out!

Most of you know that Shelby has been playing guitar for about a year. Jake has been talking about getting a guitar since Shelby started playing. After Christmas Best Buy had a great sale on a Fender Electric Guitar Starter Kit. Jake decided to use some money he had saved up to go and buy it. The starter kit came with everything he needed. Guitar, Amp, Case, etc.. He started lessons two weeks ago and is really excited to be learning. Even Matt seems to be getting interested. Jake came home from lessons tonight and Matt was asking Jake to show him what he learned. Next thing I know Matt has the guitar. This is not the first time this has happened. When Jake first brought home the guitar my husband would disappear and I would find him in Jake's room with Jake's guitar watching the "How to Play Guitar" DVD that came with it.

Shelby got some bling for her guitar at Christmas. She got a pink fuzzy strap and some pretty new picks and she finally got a case to carry her guitar back and forth to lessons. She also just got something called a "Capo". Supposedly this is something Taylor Swift uses a lot and our guitar teacher recommended one because Shelby likes to learn Taylor's songs.

Here are some pics of our rockers and perhaps a future rocker (Matt).
