What is it about 15 year old boys that make them so....weird? I have been working with two 15 year old boys in this music program I am involved in and it has been an eye opener for sure. Neither of them have much money, so I have asked a friend of mine to work on their guitars to get them up to snuff and have been trying to teach them a little about playing. They loved my help with their instruments but when I try to teach them a little bit, the one boy just gives me a look, says "Yeah, yeah, yeah..." and goes on making the same weird mistakes. I know I'm being patient and trying to be helpful but they just don't want to listen to advice. Like when they wanted to buy a bass guitar. I tried to tell them not to buy a cheap one they were looking at but to save a little more money and get something that would be a lot better. Did they listen? Nope. They went ahead and bought the cheap one and when they got it my friend was fixing it a week later. I resisted the urge to tell them "I told you so.".
Man, was I like that when I was 15? They are both pretty nice kids and fairly bright but trying to give them advice or teach them anything is like talking to a brick wall. Oh well, guess they will have to learn the hard way like I did.
