Conversations with my kid: music theory 101...

Or "My kid knows her genres about as well as I do, which isn't saying much"

Riding in the car, listening to music.

T: is this the drummer singing?
Me: no, it's the guitarist
R: the drummer is the most important part of the band
Me: yup, I've heard that, because they keep the time
R: unless it's like smooooth jazz. (yes, she did add extra oooo's to smooth)
T: no, they have drums...
R: no, jazz has like harmonicas and violins


  1. My 8 yr old Lyla aka "Bug" was hitting the seek button on the car radio recently. One station had Aerosmith playing Sweet Emotion, another had Aerosmoth playing I Don"t Want To Miss A thing"

    Bug: "dude, that doesn't even sound liek the same band. What happened?"

    Me: Aerosmith kind of changed their sound when they got older.

    Bug: "Why would you change from good to bad? That;s dumb, daddy."

    Me: "I love you honey"

  2. Haha oh, that must have done you proud!

  3. Its better then Steves Daughter saying, "whos aerosmith?" lol

  4. Yep yep, lots of violins. That's why I love jazz so much...

  5. Ha awesome. From the mouth of babes...
    At least she knows that drums are the most important part of the band, yeah!


Engaging in discussion and/or general sucking up.. that's where it's at!
