The Thrill of Trying a New Instrument

There nothing like seeing a person holding and trying a Chapman stick for the first time.

We were having a garage sale in June and some young dudes bought all my old Guitar Player magazines. When they mentioned they played guitar and bass, I showed them the stick.

Turns out the young fellow holding the stick (Ryan) was the son of a musician friend (Rob Reid).

Check out the excitement look on his face!
