comment How can I teach a student who seems to have no rhythm?
very nice answer. A steady beat does wonders, even for musicians with more experience. There's nothing like clapping LOUD - the metronome is too discreet!

comment Power chord: Can the lower fifth be used?
for what is worth, this kind of inversion is my preferred way of playing the opening riff from “Smoke on the Water”. I wouldn't have it any other way.

comment Learning Guitar by hearing

comment Why do minor keys sound “sad”?
I don't feel this answer is really correct. The overtones for the notes composing the minor chord are always present as well.

Seems pretty useful as a skill!

comment Is there a “standard” or “typical” drum kit layout?
You didn't mention: are you right- or left-handed? Left handed people can invert all the positions or learn to play "regular"
