But I don't see why the father in this song "had to" give an introduction to guitar. And what is the significance of it not occurring?
What's the connection?
Is he saying he thus then never bothered to learn playing?
It's something that could have served as a bond between father-son. If I wrote a song about never playing catch with my father, everyone would know what I'm talking about... a missed father-son moment. It works regardless of whether your father taught you how to play baseball himself or not. Same goes for learning anything, including guitar.
