We have a NEW TRADE! Take a look!

Take a look at our new trade!

Our class traded the Persian rug that was donated by singing legend RICK DERRINGER with Mrs. Ginger Turner for a hand-made and hand-painted collector's guitar. We have the legal appraisal for the guitar priced at $2000.00! The appraiser's description of the guitar is, "This guitar is a D-size Acoustic Guitar (unknown maker), featuring Exotic Laminated European Rosewood back and sides with a spruce top and maple neck. It was hand painted by Mark Camden, a well-known artist in the Smokey Mountain area. The painting is done in a Southwestern Indian Art Style. The value of this guitar would be placed at $2000."

Rick Derringer was still in Nashville and kind enough to come to our school and participate in this trade, also. It was fun having a celebrity at our school. We were even on WSMV channel 4 news that night. HOW FUN!!!

Matthew and Seth hold up the Persian rug as rock and roll singing legend Rick Derringer tells the t.v. camera why he chose to get involved in our Banding Together project. (Mr. Derringer is very famous for his songs "Hang on Sloopy" and "Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo". Today, you will find his songs on Guitar Hero 2.)

Collin Keith, the 7th grader who told us of the trading-up concept, gets his picture made with both of our traders, Rick Derringer and Mrs. Ginger Turner. Isn't this guitar INCREDIBLE! And, it has been held by RICK DERRINGER!

Now, our job is to find someone who wants to trade-up for this guitar. Remember, we started with a rubberband ball and we have traded- up to this guitar. We plan to continue trading up until the end of April at which time we will sell or auction our final item and donate all the money to aid micro-lending in poverty-stricken countries around the world. If you can help us with this project, please contact our teacher, Mrs. Cochrane, at

Happy Trades!

Mrs. Cochrane's seventh grade class at David Lipscomb Middle in Nashville, TN
