C&L's Late Nite Music Club With John Butler Trio

Ocean from Surfing Medicine, by John Butler Trio (more CDs here)

My eldest, after two years of groaning through piano lessons, has asked me to please please please let her take up the guitar. I suspect the coolness factor of learning to play Ode to Joy and the Minuet in G is significantly lower than learning how to play guitar. Every once in a while, I've caught her on YouTube watching those "How to play [song] on the guitar" videos, slowly manipulating her fingers into learning the chords.

It was she who introduced me to the John Butler Trio, and even as someone without even a scintilla of musical talent, I could see a guitar master here.

Who knows? Maybe you'll see my kid on YouTube playing her heart out like this.
