It’s taken nearly 2 months of lockdown and for our internet to go down today, but boredom has set in and finally my eldest has asked me to teach her guitar.
There’s always been a guitar left around the house available to mess about on pretty much since she was born. I’ve never forced the issue though so this interest is pleasing.
The Hello Kitty Strat is still too big for her so I dusted off a shorter scale Danelectro 63 that I’d squirrelled away and she’s buzzing with it. I think it’s the surf green colour...
I’m sure a few have done this with their kids so I’m hoping for some advice on best ways to start - any websites, books, exercise etc that might help.
She already has piano lessons so realistically guitar tuition isn’t an option.
She’s starting by fretting the low e string across the first 12 frets with her third finger and picking it cleanly with the right hand. I’ve asked her to do this for all fingers to start with...
I thought maybe dropping the e to a d so she can do 1 finger power chords might help as well?
Thanks in advance
