Guitarist with autism wows listeners with brilliant performances - News - The Columbus Dispatch - Columbus, OH: The only audience Zayne Harshaw trusted when he started playing the electric guitar was the darkness.
He locked the bedroom door, turned off the lights and for months the then-14-year-old would strum alone, too fearful to let anyone see him working to mimic the music of legendary guitar players.

humano – uma mudança pela qual estou ansiosa e que não posso deixar de
