Well, I have not given him his guitar and amp yet, because he has been a right rotter to his mother over the last fortnight, so his only practice is
coming from the occasional stint on an electric acoustic in school, which is an instrument which does not wail very well, and so will teach him
nothing of the ways of metal.
Also, in order to gain any meaningful benefit from practice, he must have access to an instrument daily, for at least twenty minutes. He will make no
progress until I can give him his guitar for use at home, but he cannot have these things unless he learns to show respect to his mother, treat his
little brothers with love, rather than frustration. Otherwise, he may learn to shred like a total badass, but will be unable to have a proper
relationship with the people he lives with, and I refuse to support that end result.
If he wants to shred, he needs to re-evaluate his position and learn the importance of his place in his family, and he needs to do this soon. His
mother will be into hospital very soon, to have a baby by C-section. If he is still acting up by the time she returns home, he will make life hell
during a time which will be stressful enough for all concerned.
