    Intonation shouldn't be much of a problem.

    This is amusing, but would probably be funnier to me if I knew who Ed Sheeran was.

    And y'all think the younger set doesn't play guitar.

    Ed Sheeran is a very popular contemporary recording artist: English, aged 27, redheaded, 5'8", and sporting a lot of tattoos these days. My kids like him.

    His guitar playing is, however, simple, to put it mildly. Thus, this meme.

    YouTube has more details.

    There should only be two frets. Even still you could play a lot of chords on that neck. I'd miss the F#m.

    Yeah, I knew could've just searched the Internet for info, but was trying to multitask at the moment I saw this, so...

    27? Well that explains some of it. He's just a little older than my oldest grandson. I'm not that savvy about the pop music icons and celebrities of Millennials and Gen Z. An incident from about 8 years ago illustrates this point well.

    I was playing a 15 minute set at a local open mic event on an outdoor patio of a coffee shop. Just as I began, a young mother came in with her two children, a girl of about 9-10 years of age (so born right around the turn of the century), and her younger brother, I'm guessing he was about 6. They were well behaved and polite children. They made no ruckus, listened quietly and even applauded after each song.

    When I finished my set, I sat down on the patio next to them. As the next act onstage was tuning up and doing mic check, the young girl leaned over to me, and very politely, and in all sincerity asked me, "Do you know any songs from this century?" :eek: I sheepishly replied, "No." :oops:
