firekid is Dillon Hodges. Dillon learned to play guitar from his neighbor. His neighbor said he couldn't teach him how to play the pop rock music in the books he brought. He said "I'm a bluegrass musician. That's what I can teach you." In Athens, AL, there isn't much call for bluegrass music, but Dillon learned. And then he went on to win a national flatpick guitar contest in Oklahoma at a festival.
