Guitar Man

Most of you know that Jackson is becoming quite the guitar and ukulele player.  You can see that his guitar (once Clayton's) has the finished rubbed off of it from play.  He pretty much plays solid for at least an hour a day, usually more.  He's getting pretty good for a three year old, if I do say so myself!  
So when we went to Bentonville this past weekend and didn't take along his instruments, I think he had a bit of withdrawal.  We saw a lot of groups playing around the town square and he was mesmerized--literally chomping at the bit to get in there and play with them!
This meant that as soon as we got home, he ran in the house and grabbed his guitar and his "bucket" to sit on.  He spent the rest of the evening serenading the neighborhood with all that he had learned by watching the others.  

 He's had the rhythm part down for a while, and now he's added two chords to his repertoire.
Look for him on the next season of American Idol!
