I’m giving my first official (i.e. getting paid for it, sorta; he’s going to help me do renovations around my house in exchange; at least HE BETTER) guitar lesson tomorrow night. I have an old, cheap classical guitar which belongs to my brother. I rarely play it now, but I can read music and figure out a tune, so I have some skill I can pass on. My student wants to know how to play simple rock riffs, like those from AC/DC, Beatles, etc. I’ll be teaching from tablature, like this one for Bob Marley’s Redemption Song, or Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here.

Any suggestions on popular, easy tunes I could teach a beginner? I don’t think he’s interested in learning Mood For A Day by Yes, or Little Wing by Jimi. Yet.

  1. “See that boy with that guitar. He’s got skinny legs like I’ve always wanted.” Show him how to play Skinny Legs, or Brook Trout!

  2. there’s a nirvana song that is supposed to be the easiest song in the world to play. I remember trying for 2 days to figure it out, and then i gave up on guitar.
