THE SON

I've just played a bit of death metal riff pattern in a session on son's guitar. Fun! He showed me how to press my strongest finger flat over the strings at a fret on the guitar neck and gently strum the strings with a pick (does that make sense?!). Then to raise the fret finger and place it further up or down the neck for different chords. Alternatively don't strum. Still produces a brilliant sound, which really surprised me.

Then we watched three YouTube clips. Well, I loved 'em 😄...!
 (Anyone of a sensitive disposition should not watch these... ) 



                                                        
What every mother who fusses too much or swoons over any trace of dirt unseen by a magnifying glass is a son. Luckily I'm not fussy or swoony... and this son is hysterical.
