This Little Light Of Mine, By Lincoln and Taivan using the Rock-iT Barre Guitar, Ukulele, Banjo and Other Stringed Instrument Device (My Invention :)

This Little Light Of Mine, By Lincoln and Taivan using the Rock-iT Barre on the baritone ukulele and my guitar (my new invention to play guitar easily).  They just learned how to play earlier that day, and came back to playing again.  This time, they wanted to try playing with the instrument on their lap.  I put the stickers for the chords under the 1st few strings on the fret board, facing them, so they could see the chord letters easily.  

I also opened tuned to a D chord, which I consider a "Simplified Method" of playing the Basic Rock-iT Barre.   They are so fun to hang out with!  Thanks boys :)



A Long Time Since I Have Posted

Hello!

It has been almost 2 years since I have posted anything on thesinginggrandma.com blog.  I have been working hard on my invention, the Rock-iT Barre Guitar, Ukulele, Banjo, and other stringed instrument chording device, so that I could continue to play my guitar or ukulele with my grandkids, or for enjoyment.  I am so grateful that I can continue to play my guitar.  The Rock-iT Barre came out great.  I will be posting more about it, and also more videos with me or others using it.  

You can check out my new website, www.rock-itbarre.com, or you can order it off of Amazon also.  I'd love to hear from any of you with your feedback on it. 

Thanks, 

Laurie

"Fight Song", Around the Campfire

Our children and grandchildren were all at the cabin this summer.  One evening, Mason was playing the guitar, and the kids joined in on "The Fight Song".  Very fun!  (Sorry for the horribly jumpy video)
