My son gave me a CD at Easter that he has been recording lately. It had 6 songs on it, 4 of which he had written. The most amazing thing was that he had completely done everything on the CD - written the songs, laid down the guitar and bass lines, played the drums and dobro and even harmonized with himself for a two-part harmony on some of the songs. I didn't listen to the CD until the Tuesday morning after Easter on the way to work. I was completely blown away by the fact that it was all him and nothing else. I knew he had talent because I've seen it over the years as he's played in several bands, etc. and I've been able to witness first hand the quality guitar player he is. But I had no idea that he could completely generate something from scratch that sounded like he had a whole band recording there with him. I am so proud of his accomplishments with this endeavor. I know he wants to take it further. I've listened to the CD a bazillion times since I first heard it and still cannot believe it's him.
The pride I have for him is simply amazing.
