My 17-yr-old son is a talented classical musician, playing the violin and viola to a high standard, and coming along nicely as a solo tenor singer with a lovely tone. He's practising hard on the viola for an imminent high-grade viola exam,on theviolin for a solo performance, and for several orchestral concerts. That's in his 'spare time' from his sixth-form school studies.

But just for fun and relaxation, what does he do? - retreat to his bedroom and hit the electric guitar, in an impressive manner...

His party pieces on the violin include the fearsomely difficult fast arpeggio bits in Vivaldi's 'Spring' concerto, and lots of exciting gypsy fiddler stuff. So I'm sure you can imagine that when the fingers of both hands get going, there's some remarkable finger-pickin' sounds to be heard.

No geriatric ears were seriously harmed in the construction of this thread.

Alan,

Obviously, all ears are attuned to honing his skills. Like the close-up of his hands.

Aloha

Wonderful shots. Your son sounds very talented. My only musical talent is to enjoy listening to those who perform.
