One thought on “Trombone Shorty

  1. I love reading about people who find ways to do the things they want to do. I remember wanting a guitar so much that I made one out of an old cigar box and a yardstick and different kinds of strings (fishing line, cotton). It didn’t work so well …. Shorty had a better idea.
