When they're done chowing down on that perhaps they'd like an after dinner mint.
Thank you for those.
My first guitar at 14 years old was a bass. It wasn't until I was 46 that I started on a 6 string. I know pain.

Irresponsible Musicians Leave Bassist in Hot Van
Johnny wanted to learn to play bass, and had been pestering his parents to buy him a bass for months. They finally gave in, and his mom drove him to the music store to get a bass. He picked out a pretty red one, and they decided to sign him up for lessons. They made arrangements with Bob, the teacher, for lessons every Tuesday at 4:00.
First lesson Bob first showed Johnny how to hold the bass, then pointed to the E string and said, "You see that biggest string there? That's the E string. Hit it!" Barangg... "Good, now practice that and I'll see you next week."
Next week Bob points to the A string and says, "See that string right under the E string? That's the A string. Hit it." Baranggg... "Good, practice that and I'll see you next week."
The third week, and Johnny doesn't show up... after waiting for a half hour, Bob calls Johnny's mom and asked if he was coming.
"Oh, I'm sorry," said his mom, "I should have called you. He joined a band and they are on tour."

Careful... don't make Tal Wilkenfield come over and whoop your asses!
