Mimi hates having her picture taken but loves guitar. Mimi is fifteen and has been taking guitar for two years. She has a natural pensity towards finger picking, solos, anything related to the blues and Daniel Bachmen. Last week, we went on the adventure of taking her amp apart. Her small 12"speaker, Fender amp has been having a lot of extra statice noise. We noticed that the jack, where the chord connects the amp and guitar was loose. So after an hour of looking up the schematic, and taking it apart, piece by piece, we were able to tighten a loose screw. This saved her a trip to the guitar shop. And she was able to start playing her electric guitar again.
