Lesson 20, Using all four fingers. Easy!

In today's online guitar tutorial we revisit some finger patterns and rhythms. Students get to use all four fingers and solidify their understanding of the sharp.

All the pieces in this series are made easy as the student gets to imitate their teacher after working out the pitch and the rhythm of the piece. The student works out how to play the short phrases (with guidance if necessary) and imitates the teacher immediately after having heard and seen them.

Each lesson has a theme which contributes to an evolving story which unfolds as the student progresses. Today's story is about the pets of some of the characters.

Guitar Teaching Program

To achieve the best results and a positive learning experience for young guitar students, a good teaching program is essential. Copy, Play and Learn Guitar is the best available kids guitar book for very young students. It uses modern, child friendly techniques designed for their stage of physical and cognitive development. It addresses the issues and implements strategies to achieve note reading fluency and chord recognition. Using exciting and engaging songs as subject matter, it comes with free backing tracks, teaching resources and teaching points for each piece. There are also free videos available on YouTube. As the child progresses through the book, a story evolves of a boy and his friends and family involving racing cars, pets, smelly socks and more.
