Video Prompts Request For Advice From Jack Pelton
Dan Gryder is a Delta pilot, also an instructor and airshow
performer in the DC-3. But he's also a bluegrass musician known for
putting together jam sessions at his campsite at Oshkosh each year.
Recently, Dan posted a video on YouTube, offering an introductory
lesson to guitar players who'd like to learn finger-play. He linked
it on his Facebook page, which prompted a humorous exchange with
former Cessna CEO Jack Pelton.
Pelton asked, "So, if I wanted to buy a guitar to learn how to
play what would you recommend?"
Dan replied, "Jack, I'm sorry, you may have misunderstood. I am
a musician, not a magician. I've seen your landings. Save your
money and buy a CD so no one gets hurt..."
Then, in his next post, Dan added, "OK, fine, I am just kidding
Jack. I recommend a simple used guitar if you're
unemployed...sorry, I didn't mean to bring that up."
It's great to see that after a really tough year, Dan is finding
his sense of humor again.
