BUSTER: Here I am with Carlos and Mora to meet their friends Rudy Lopez and Robert Casillas, and their music teacher, Santiago Jimenez, Jr. Whew! I can't believe I remembered all that.
MORA: Hey, Rudy, here's that friend we were telling you about.
RUDY: Hi! You must be Buster. Welcome to the Conjunto Heritage Taller.
BUSTER: Wow! That's the biggest guitar I've ever seen.
RUDY: This is called a "bajo sexto." It's used to accompany the accordion.
BUSTER: Oh. I have an accordion.
RUDY: Hey, Robert. Buster plays the accordion.
ROBERT: Oh, really? Good— then he can play with us.
BUSTER: Yeah, I guess so.
BUSTER: Carlos and Mora told me that these guys are really good musicians, but they didn't tell me that Robert is only 12 years old.
ROBERT: Hi, Buster. Hey, how are you doing?
BUSTER: I'm all right. You?
ROBERT: Fine, thanks.
BUSTER: You're really great.
