Subject: RE: 4 year old wants a guitar for christmas
When I was 5 or 6 I loved watching the six five special on TV. The toy shop had two little guitars in the window. A small 6 stringed wooden one , and a plastic one with a contraption on the neck where you pressed a button and strummed a chord. Well that was the one I wanted but I got the wooden one. Of course it wasnt a real instrunent -you could strum it however, I strummed it for a week or two then suddenly it was gone. My Father had come in and sat on it and broken it. My parents thought I'd not miss it and had dumped it. It wasn't until I was 11 that I got a real guitar, and they didn't confess to the breakage for years.I think just owning a toy you can strum may be enough.
