Dads and sons make music.
One dad and son make guitars (gih-TARS). Another dad and son paint shiny coats on them.
They take great care in their work. They help people make sweet music.
Pray: Thank God for well-made instruments. We can play songs that give God praise and glory.

It can take six months to make a custom guitar. Mariano Paredes, Sr., and his son handmake varnish for guitars. Their varnish process uses a method from 1800. Resin is dissolved in alcohol and crushed volcanic rock. The resin gives guitars a rich color.
