    Unnecessary. Successful tuition of minors works around their attention span, just as that for adults does. Hardly any adults can manage 15 mins. Little and often.

    Yeah, same thing here. I wish I'd had the opportunity when Iw as his age to do this. Hopefully he appreciate it when he's older.

    Exactly. Music has done so much for me over the years...

    Good luck with getting him into it, I really hope he gets the bug.

    Mine all have guitars, I'm just struggling to get them into playing as they all just want to pick it up and be able to rock out to their favourite songs, they get disheartened as soon as they realise they need to put in some work first
    I'm so metal I shit bats

    Rock Band and Rocksmith are great for starts.
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    The few Jackson JS guitars I've tried in the past have been pretty decent!

    Bought one used recently to put in my rehearsal room as a backup, and it sucks and can't stay in tune at all but I hope yours is as good as the earlier ones I've tried

    The quality on the JS line is definitely hit and miss. I’ve had 4 JS22-7s in my possession and returned two due to quality. And had 2 JS32-7s and returned one for the same reason, although it was much closer to the one I kept than the 22-7s were.

    This 22-6 is clearly not as good at the 7s I have, but it is worth the $100 I paid.

    X2 on the Rock Smith rec. My son was watching my wife play on it while I sat there and coached her along when he made the comment about wanting to get another one. FOMO for the win!!

    Seeing Floyd live was what made me catch the bug. Gilmour essentially held 60,000 people captive with his playing and hearing that guitar blasting through the PA in a stadium was intoxicating, so for you parents who already have guitars for your offspring, maybe taking them to a guitar-oriented show is something that will get them going? Floyd isn't touring anytime soon, unfortunately.
