    Hey, I hope it is OK to brag on my son...
    Here is a video of my son, Justin, playing bass with a couple of his friends at the High School last week.. .they were just "messing around" but I think they are pretty good.. (my son is the one in the orange shirt)

    And before you fundys start yelling... yeah, I know he was not playing Christian music.. but I am still proud of him... you should see him in church.

    BTW, he has only been playing bass for 3 months...

    That's fantastic Tim! I know you're proud. My son plays the guitar and I'm always so proud when I hear him. I know just how you feel. :)

    That's the truth! I'd like to learn that someday myself. I used to play guitar, but life got in the way. Maybe I'll get back to it someday. I'll never be as good at it as my son, though.

    I like it! There's definite potential. I left a note of encouragement for the boys, Tim. Do you think they'll remember us when they hit the big time? :)

    tinytim,

    I listened to them last night and they were GREAT!

    First of all, that used to be one of my favorite songs and secondly, they played and sang the "stuffing" out of it! :laugh:

    I was impressed. :thumbs:

    I will pass all the encouragement along to Justin.

    He has always loved music.
    A few yrs ago, he was playing Tuba in the 5th grade band.

    This year he took up percussion in the band. And Bass on the side.

    We had a meeting with his teachers yesterday and he had told them that he wants to be a musician... and this floored us. He has always said he wants to be a welder!!

    I just love Jr highers!!

    Wouldn't have said a word, but this just asked for it...



    The artistic expressions of my progeny always touch my heart. Even when they consisted of random scribbles in orange crayon, they earned a prominent place on our refrigerator door.

    Maybe that's where you should have kept this video.

    This isn't to cast aspersions upon your son. Perish the thought! Just keeping the art in its proper perspective, as you libs tend to confuse music with the ministry of spiritual gifts.

    You never share your child's accomplishments with friends and family and have a little "proud daddy" moment? That's all tinytim was doing.

    Why? He wasn't claiming his son to be the Messiah or a great spiritual force of his generation.

    He was just proud of his son learning to play the guitar.

    I agree with you. I don't think you intended to cast aspersions upon his son.

    I just think you intended to cast aspersions upon tinytim.

    Unfortunately, you only succeeded in drawing negative attention to yourself. Aaron, you always put a little smilie face next to you posts. Surely this post was somewhat tongue-in-cheek even though it did not read that way?

    I laughed so hard when I read that!!! :laugh:

    I was waiting for you. I can always count on you to balance everything out...

    It is nice to see you again Aaron.

    And wow, you called me a lib.... if only you knew how conservative I really am.

    I didn't expect you to like it... and I am not offended by what you said.

    BTW, there is no way, my son would play these songs in worship..
    Now you should here him play "Master of the Sea", when our choir sings it.

    And he plays along with me to "I wish we'd all been ready"
    Thanks for your viewpoint.
