At age 9, George Jones received his first guitar.  It was a Gene Autry Cowboy Guitar, right from “The Melody Ranch”.  George taught himself how to play and practiced until he was able to roam the streets of Beaumont, TX earning tips.  It was tough times during “The Great Depression” and his Dad even made him play on the streets to earn money.  At 11 years old he was producing money by playing his guitar.  At 16, he left home and was on his own, earning a living by playing guitar.
