One week ago, Angie LaBorde from the Squishy Guitar Project put out a call for 100 guitarists to help give a morale boost to Aiden Garcia, a 9-year-old boy with a medical condition called aplastic anemia. Her idea was to create a video montage of guitar players showing their support. Thanks to the help of YouTube channels like Phillip McKnight, CGS, and others, the goal was SMASHED! By the time of the deadline, over 150 guitarists had responded with videos of support.
Aiden recently had a bone marrow transplant at a children’s hospital in Houston, Texas and will have to remain in quarantine for 100 days while he recovers from surgery. With help from Eddie Curnan, The Squishy Guitar Project will present Aiden a customized guitar, along with this video montage from members of the guitar community across the globe.
