Sorry, I meant the question as to whether to invite them.

You forgot about a Telecaster: large instrument collection.

You forgot about a cupboard: large house.

Yes, it was in the east wing which I only use in the summer months..... honest. 

It’s only a cheap copy that I was given a couple of years ago that has been at the back of a cupboard behind other stuff since we moved. If I’d remembered about it then I would have used it as a template for the short scale Tele bass I’m making rather than have hunted round the web for a plan!!! Doh!

Should have the Telebass ready for this bash.

Found Telecaster in cupboard also implies: large cupboard.

Fair enough.

I wonder if there is a recognised age at which kids do switch on.  I mean other than wanting to live the lifestyle (as they perceive it from the media).

I was wanting to play guitars from about the age of eleven or so.  It was purely because I saw and heard them on TOTP and thought I'd love to do that.  Of course I wasn't really interested in doing the work... I just wanted a guitar as an ornament really.  I only got properly interested after I was pushed into playing bass for some friends.

I'm interested because I had had musical tuition at primary some years earlier (recorder and the "promise" of violin later).  That stopped when we left England.  That experience and the later desire to become a guitarist never sort of met in the middle with me.  Schools back then tended to feed the notion that if a piece of music wasn't Classical, it wasn't really music.

I hated the tuition.  I still have a problem with teachers in general.  I get the impression that I am far from unique in this.

Of course in these enlightened times ALL music is classified and therefore Classical.  Well that's how I see it anyway.
