We are now into week three…and 14-year-old Amanda is doing amazing! I made a mistake in the video…this is only her 3rd lesson (not her fourth)! Amanda is an ideal student because she has a strong desire to learn how to play guitar fast AND she is willing to practice every day for 30 minutes!
In her first week of guitar instruction she learned G, C, and D7 and how to pick with her thumb and fingers in 4/4 time. During her second week of guitar instruction she went on to D, G, and A7 and continued to strum with her thumb and fingers. She also learned how to strum in 3/4 time.
Today we'll watch how she does on her finger exercises and we'll play Silent Night in the key of G. She will then learn the G7 and F chords and Silent Night in the key of C. She will also learn how to fingerpick! How cool is that?
Check back with us in a week to see Amanda's progress during week 3!
