Hi All, My daughter has been having paid, small group guitar lessons at school for +2 years and doesn't really seem to be progressing. I'm hoping you can help me to help inspire her and work a bit harder to get a lot more enjoyment out of the guitar. There are a few problems 1 - She doesn't practice unless nagged, we often don't have the energy to do that and bribery doesn't work. 2 - The music tuition books the teacher uses don't have anything she wants to play which doesn't help with #1. 3 - The teacher is only teaching her jazz/blues single notes, no chords - which means the sound she makes is thin and nothing like the music she hears on the radio so again doesn't help with #1. 4 - I have my doubts about the teacher; he isn't teaching to grade exams and seems content to come in once a week, have a go at them about not practising and then fumble through the same song as last week. I've spoken to the school but they put the blame back on the kids for not practising, which is fair comment but not the whole story. I taught myself to play when I was a teenager because I really wanted to learn, but I can barely read music and have "my own techniques" which I'm loathed to pass on and undo proper training. I can encourage and work along with her though if she wants to! I was hoping to pick up some sheet music that would be easy enough to play but contemporary enough that she'd really want to try. I had a browse through on Musicroom but struggled to find anything that looks interesting. I had a book of "100 Superhits of the 80's" which I struggled through back in the day so pick up new chords. My experience was the transcriptions were often inclined towards piano and made the guitar parts really tricky (or perhaps I was and still am a bit rubbish ). Do any of you have any suggestions/recommendations for song books that won't be impossible to play but may inspire a bit of engagement? Any other tips and tricks to get kids to put in the effort?
