My son Joaquin played his first gig last night at his school's talent show. He did pretty good! :D

Congratulations Joaquin! :bravo:

It was cute hearing some young person singing along. :D

Personally, I find it very distracting when someone does that. That's why I choose pieces that I'm pretty sure no one has ever heard before. :lol:

Good job! You didn't seem nervous and you have a nice bow, too.

Keep up the good work!

My compliments to Joaquin, Perfecto! I love to see young players performing so uninhibited. He seems very relaxed to me. When they grow up, they lose their innocence, become self-conscious and start making mistakes. Treasure this moment. I found your son's performance very moving. Thank you for sharing this video, I love it! :bye:

I think I was more nervous than he was :lol: But I knew that he would do good, he was practicing several times a day leading up to the talent show so he was more than prepared.

Congratulations, Joaquin on your first gig. It was so sweet, and it made me want to get up and dance the waltz. Keep up the good work, as I'm sure you will be performing many many more gigs in the future.

Also congrats to your dad for getting through your first gig. :)

That was great, Joaquin.
Perf, you must be very proud of your son...you have every right to be. He looks like a good kid.
Thanks for sharing this with us.

That is wonderful Perf. I'm sure he does not yet have the perspective to know it but he is very lucky to have started at a young age, and have a great teacher for a father. That's where the great ones come from.
Cheers,
Tom

Well done. I enjoyed it. Held the melody well. The applause was appropriate. Keep strumming.
