A.R.T.S. Guitar Class And It's $5 Burger Night at the Corvette Diner

The A.R.T.S. Guitar Classes that Varsity Strings started back in January are getting bigger every week! Andy is doing a great job with the kids and right now we're learning to transition between some basic chords, so we can finally start playing some songs. Yay!

Mr. Smile E. Face -

A lesson about tuning: "Tuning a guitar is like tuning a piano; you can tune a guitar but you can't tunafish. Wait... what?"

This is our pal Mario. He's also a student teacher. I mean the guy with the guitar and black hair, not the Mario on Smiley's beanie.

This room is the epitome of chill! Instruments in every cranny, big leather couches, and two big posters of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead in one corner.

The guitar is bigger than she is!

Danny Riley is the guy the whole music room is dedicated to - this photo looks like it was taken in the acoustic room at 'The Blue Guitar' shop -

As soon as Andy's supervising eyes left the room, I jumped at the chance to teach the kids how to play the Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil." Quote of the day: "That song sounds very holy!"

"Any more questions about theory? Yes, Billy? Yeah, Billy, I'll get your pick out from the inside of your guitar."

On our break I found this really really old record. It's not even called a record, its called a "Re-Creation", which turned into the name "Re-cording" or "Record" later. I looked these up on the internet and they were made by Edison around 1914-1918? No, I'm not making this up!

It's about 1/4" thick -

This would make a great t-shirt!

Finally its time for $5 BURGER NIGHT at the CORVETTE DINER, right down the street!

Gotta go, there's more burgers to be chomped.
