My brother Ned has always loved music. When he was little he had a drum set.
Later, he had any number of banjos and guitars and keyboards. He couldn't play any of them but he THOUGHT that he could and nobody ever told him any different. He'd play at it and sing to the top of his lungs. Trust me, if it's your birthday then you want Ned there to lead the singing. He harmonizes nicely up a major third on the last part of Happy Birthday to YOU!
Friends of one of his housemates stopped by the other day on their way home from a band competition. Ned felt compelled to show off his talent and the kids were fun loving and patient.
He's really concentrating...
