So, you think you're a pretty hot guitarist .... you're maybe 28, 32, you've been playing for almost 20 years, you've been in bands. Then you learn that a kid down the street plays guitar. You suggest that he bring his guitar over so you can "jam." You try not to be condescending, but hey, that's hard to do when you're a local guitar legend.

The kid shows up. He's sixteen, and here's how he plays, with his friend Philip Catherine.
