The Self-Teaching Guitar and More

One important pearl of wisdom garnered from coaching youth baseball is that it is really difficult to teach a 5 year-old, but every once in a while it is possible to trick him into learning.

From Social Media to Shelbots

The @Viodi Twitter handle is supposed to be for industry-relevant items, but sometimes it is used for things that are seemingly a bit off-topic.
