In order to play the guitar, stuffed bears must graft dexterous human fingers atop their furry nubbins. Make glorious music that makes inanimate objects jealous with today's Groupon: for $30, you get two beginner guitar lessons at Gand Music & Sound, located in Northfield (a $60 value). Lessons can be taken by children (ages eight and up) as well as adults.

The melody-making professionals at Gand Music & Sound train minds and fingers how to extract ear-pleasing tunes from the bellows of acoustic and electric guitars. During 30-minute beginner guitar lessons, aspiring Yngwie Malmsteens learn how to properly hold the six-stringed beasts and where to position their hands to avoid cramps.

Once the guitar is comfortably nestled in the player's arms, the easy-to-understand, expert instructors will teach novice axe strummers essential chords, go over tablature- and note-reading basics, and show how to unlock the spice rack on the back of each guitar. Trainees are welcome to use their own guitars or Gand Music & Sound rental guitars (starting at $30 per month) for the lessons.
