Right, this is for Steve mostly, since he's given me a few successful lessons... but advice from anyone is more than welcome Recently I've been approached by a few people wanting lessons, most recently, last night some guy asked me if I'd give him some lessons in our interval... (well he asked me in the interval, he wanted lessons later on I expect?) Much as I told him I really wasnt that good and could recommend a teacher in London (yourself), he was kind of adamant (no.. not Adam Ant ), so I said I'd give him a couple of lessons to start with. I'll see how it goes, if after 2 lessons (or so) he's happy with it and I'm confortable teaching I'll ask for some cash - and of course I will tell him this from the outset! I plan to see where he is - find out what kind of stuff he's into, how he wants to play, teach him some basic chord theory (followed by key sigs, modes, II-V-I, common exstensions etc - just not in one lesson!) - and some "cool stuff" - I want to try to balance 'tricks' with theory so it's not too boring, but he still gets some of the basics under his belt. I also want to try and pick songs that he likes and understand them myself so I can teach him about the theory in the songs... I'm really just after any advice - ANY pointers whatsoever that will help me not mess him about or make it a bad experience for him. In all honesty, a little cash-in-hand would be nice, but it's not at all important and I'm very very wary of doing a bad job of teaching - I really really dont want to put someone off lessons, or worse still bass!
