  • 28 guitars on stage playing at the same time

    I must be insane (LOL) but Tuesday night we managed to get 28 middle schoolers from the guitar class I assist with to all play

    together on stage at the same time! The school's chorus winter concert included time for the guitar students to play a few

    selections - All 28 played Ode to Joy and another warm up exercise together. Then a group of 3 played Elenore Rigby (chords

    only) and finally, I had 4 of the guys playing Jingle Bells (melody) together. Sure there were a couple of mistakes but all-in-all

    I was very proud of them.

      Good on you for working with kids! Where did all the guitars come from?

        Is that how the Beatles built the opening chord to Hard Day's Night?

          Thanks! A couple belong to the kids but most belong to the school and the kids pay a rental fee to use them for the semester or year (depending on how long they have the class for)... basically works like many band instruments (horns, flutes, drums, etc.) in most public schools music programs.
