I’ve been teaching my friend’s 9 year old son to play guitar.
We’ve been working on chords for a while now and he’s gotten to the point where he’s pretty good with G Em C D. He even makes changes from one chord to the next fairly well.
So, I want to teach him to play through a song that uses those chords. A song with all four of those chords would be best, but a good G C D song would be a good start as well.
I’d like to limit selection to songs that are already in the key of G, so that he can better hear how what he is playing matches the song.
Preferably in 4/4 or 3/4.
A song that, as recorded, is strummed on an acoustic guitar would be great but that point is entirely unnecessary.
More important is to pick something he knows.[ul]
[li]Trendy Recent Stuff[/li][li]Beatles, he knows the Beatles fairly well[/li][li]The Monkees, he knows alot of Monkess songs as well.[/li][li]Bob Dylan, he’s pretty good in his knowledge of Bob Dylan but not nearly as much as the above.[/li][li]Bob Marley, again pretty good in his knowledge here.[/li][li]Anything you think a 9 Year old might know from simple cultural osmosis.[/li][/ul]
