This particular musician has seen us listening to him multiple times and he knows Kidlet's guitar teacher so he knows that my girl wants to be a future blues shredder. This time when we were hearing him he offered the most amazing thing - he planned on asking her to join them onstage and play a song with them!
Oh...mah...GAWD!!!!! REALLY?!?!?!?!?!?!? How freakin' cool is that????? A 13 year old girl being asked by a group of "grown up" band dudes to join them!!!! I already loved the guys but I loved them even more at that point. BUT there was one small problem...Kidlet doesn't know a song yet. She's been practicing and has learned a chord or two but not enough to play an entire song.
Besides that, she's pretty shy. I think she would have just melted into her shoes if he had actually announced out loud that he wanted her to play with them. Thankfully he had asked Manchild first and was told that she wasn't ready yet so she didn't have to be embarrassed in front of everyone. Now that she's had an offer, she's going to have to up her game and stop talking smack about how much she'd like to get up on the stage. Because that's an option now. If she ever learns more than a chord or three. Go rocker girl, GO!!!
