Buy a Guitar. – (January 1st 1980)
Leo Forte (age 22) buys an old black Stratocaster with the letters “HBJ” scratched in the back from a garage sale as well as a VHS tape about playing guitar. He heads home pops in the tape, and as the falling notes on the TV show him what notes to play he begins his journey into music.

lyrics

-[Leo’s father’s living room, lite only by the glow of the TV screen]-

Falling Squares on T.V. screens, still fall in the mind, behind the scenes. Music is the art of people, finger paints lead to dreams. Fretting fingers tend to bleed, but you’re learning how to read. You’ll never know until you try... So try.

Those falling squares won’t make them scream. But those falling squares, are building a dream. They can change your life, give you the means. Something you always meant to do... meant to be.
