“I was given my first guitar at the age of twelve by a couple I babysat for. I rarely charged a fee. They surprised me with a Sears & Roebuck Silvertone guitar painted with cowboys playing music around a campfire. I did not know how to play but quickly went out and bought a Joan Baez album and songbook with guitar chords. I taught myself to play every song in that songbook.” –excerpt from Ted Shockley’s interview from Thelma’s Fan Club page.
