I'm sure we've all been caught once or twice rocking out on the air guitar during our favorite song, or we've picked up a broom and pretended we were on stage performing for a crowd of thousands instead of on our front porch sweeping fall leaves. I know I have, much to the chagrin of my neighbors who look upon this crazy person with sideways glances as he bops to the beat of his own personal soundtrack. Even Jimi Hendrix started his own personal journey with the guitar by strumming on a broom at an early age. Now, I'm no Jimi Hendrix, but it's always inspiring to know that he was once a kid learning basic chords for the first time because he was driven to play.
