Less keys doesn't mean easier to play. It means restricted range

Another thing I do is have a recording device with you. It doesn't have to be hi fi, but I use an Edirol.

@naught101 My criticism isn't on the contents of the book and I'm not addressing the possibility that it may be wrong, but rather on the presentation of the text (which is archaic and hard to read). Just try and read the text yourself. It's not good studying to learn from something that's hard to grok while there are much more suitable books out there written in modern English. That book is a piece of history that IMO is to be enjoyed by experienced musicians who really feel like a tour down history's past, not something a beginner should learn from.

comment Which note is consonance and which is dissonance
Consonance and dissonance are much easier to understand if you play chords. 1 & 2 together, for example, is quite dissonant, and 1 & 5 together is very consonant.

comment Effects of keeping a guitar in the car
Well it's going to ruin it, but all guitars get ruined eventually. I say just keep it there and play it, and when it gets ruined, get a new one.

Relax. Don't discourage him from practicing "because he's going to learn bad habits." That's like saying to a kid who wants to play basketball, "don't practice before you make the team, because you're going to teach yourself bad habits." Actually having practiced before seeing a teacher will make what the teacher says make a lot more sense/have relevance/be easier to learn.

Yup, exactly. What you're saying is practice and "close the feedback loop". Another thing you can do is stick your finger in your ear while you're singing, so you can hear yourself. This is a really noob thing to do, but it kind of works to start.
