Growing up, my dad was never far from his guitar. I remember going to Bluegrass festivals as a kid and dad having jam sessions in his work shop with friends. Now that he has had his spinal surgery, he is better able to get around. For the longest time, he was in constant pain because of sciatica. He required a multi-lumbar fusion to fix his pain. When I went for a visit a couple days ago, he was feeling much better. He has been branching out of Bluegrass and into rock music. Apparently, the chord progressions are very different between the two; I wouldn't know. My parents dog, Teddy, was also hanging around, and he is adorable.
