A friend of mine came to give a musical performance at VWC on Monday night, part of which featured him playing a National resophonic guitar with a steel body.

It made the whole evening worthwhile when the first question a student asked was, pointing at the National-- "what is that?"

This is just why to bring new and interesting people to play new and interesting music on the campus. Last year another friend of mine came and played some Klezmer music and a student had the same response, just sheer awestruck wonderment.

The sheer spontaneity and joy of that question --"what is that?" -- hopefully will propel him to learning to play one.
