Cara wants to learn how to play guitar but she can’t afford it. She can’t even afford a coat and it’s Fall. It’s Autumn!
She’s teaching herself.
Guitar is hard! Sensitive fingers make it hard! You gotta build calluses.
Cara is wearing her Halloween costume. She is a grape. The rest of her friends are other fruits. Grapes are delicious in salad.
There are schoolchildren listening to her play. They are requesting songs Cara doesn’t know how to play. It makes her nervous to practice. She wants more practice. The children are loud!
She is playing “Old Macdonald Had A Farm”. She keeps going even when she makes a mistake.
Cara is determined! Her mother, Nadine, taught her to never give up. Cara knows she will improve because her brother, Jeffrey, is a famous guitar player. He toured with Earth, Wind and Fire.
After this moment, Cara feels frustrated. She gives herself a pep talk and goes back to practicing. Practice practice practice! She is hoping to learn “Stairway to Heaven”.
