"First Principles"

`It is important as a teacher to develop an understanding/rapport of what the student can expect from the first few months of guitar lessons?

1: The ability to change between chord shapes with the fingers of the Left Hand and or Right Hand if you play the opposite way...

2: The ability to strum those chords (in time) with the right hand and or left hand...The focus of the first few months of study will revolve around the "idea" of the student mastering the left and or right hand (fretting) fingering of the chords correctly and which along with some right/left hand strumming patterns for a set of guitar chords that are the easiest to form and which along with some right/left hand strumming patterns will allow the student to literally to play thousands of songs?

"Tuning and care for your Instrument"

I truly feel and believe that if one is going to learn how to play the guitar they should also become familiar with how to care for it...

For beginners...some basic things you should know to become your own player,
A. Knowing the names of the strings?
B. Tuning the Guitar without the use of a tuning machine?
C. Clean and Polish the guitar, what to use....?
D. Changing the strings, and what type of strings to buy?

it goes with out saying their is much more than these 4 tips, it's just to
get you going...

Become familiar with these tools and you will definitely be your own player!
