Recording. Chris just received a welcome gift from his aunt, a guitar that belonged to his late grandfather. As a thank-you, he is in the midst of recording a tape of guitar and banjo tunes that he has learned in the past fifteen months, using a cheap boom-box recorder that we have around. I could have used some of our recording equipment to help him create something with much better quality, but I think I’ll let him continue to use the simple tools at hand. It’s the same thinking that leads us to keep the kids away from computers, requiring them to do their reading in books and their writing on paper with pens and pencils—it helps keep the technology from overwhelming the task.
