We've brought back some dud gifts for the kids from our trips, but I think we done good with this one. Our son is a very talented musician and while in Venezuela we picked up a Cuatro for him, which we were able to deliver to him today. A cuatro has only four strings and they are tuned like a ukelele, much different from a guitar which is his instrument of choice. It amazes me how he can pick up an instrument, particularly stringed ones and with no instruction at all make it sound great. And he he can't resist trying a little Ozzie.
Check this out below to see a more traditional approach. Very Cool!
