I'll be sure to pass along the kind words. He'll be happy to hear that someone other than family liked it ;-). He's only been playing for about 8 months, so he's still working on getting comfortable with people seeing him play.
Not sure if this belongs here, but it's Christmas-related. My son, Jake, is 9 years old and a HUGE Tom Petty fan. He asked me to record him playing Learning to Fly in front of the Christmas Tree, and he asked if I'd send it as a Christmas gift/tribute to Tom Petty. I wasn't sure where to even start with that request, but I thought this might be the right place.
All the best!
