...and I thought I'd get your guys' opinions on my lessons. Yeah yeah, I know, wrong octave, but this seemed more like it belonged in GI instead of misc. I'm not really much of an expert, but I think I know enough to teach him the bare essentials. Here's what I taught him in my first lesson: -The names and functions of the parts (nut, pickup, bridge, ect.) -Proper technique (holding pick, left hand placement on the neck, ect.) -What the guitar is tuned to. -How to make a power chord and two simple riffs that should start getting his soft girlie hands to be rough and manly. Good first lesson? Well its too late for your advice on that now! Second lesson -Intro to chords and scales. (I started off by showing him an Amin chord and explaining to him what makes up that chord which led into me teaching him what a scale is, the pattern of a scale, ect...do you guys think it was wise to jump around like that? I'm afraid of confusing him.) Now do you guys think that I am jumping a bit far ahead of myself teachiong him chords/scales this early on? It feels like there should be something else I should teach him beforehand. What would you guys suggest for my third lesson? I'm thinking I should stick to teaching him chords and scales and the such, and I also need to introduce him to time. I'm not too confident in teaching him standard notation, seeing as I can barely get by on the bass clef myself; I'll probably get an online lesson for him on that. All right so possible third lesson: Teach him another chord or two, and have him play em in 4/4 or something. Maybe if I feel his hands/fingers are strong enough, I can have him try to back and forth between chords trying to keep time? Thank you all for your suggestions.
