I'm a self-taught amateur guitarist of about 10 years. Never had any formal lessons. Picked up what I could from books. When my nephew was 4, he saw my guitars and wanted to try them. He was quite interested and enjoyed making sounds on it. He ended up getting a Raptor 1/2 size kit as a gift that year. He played with it for months. I was impressed with his tenacity so loaned him an old zoom pedal. Changed his world. He taught himself a couple kids songs over the years (twinkle twinkle, etc) really seems to have a knack for it. He's 6 now, going on 7. His parents asked me where they could get him guitar lessons on the weekends. I checked a few local places but the weekend hours seem to be a deal killer.
I've checked a couple youtube videos (that's where I got the idea for the three string chords) and looked around the web but is there a better method? I sure as heck don't know enough about this frustrating instrument to be a teacher but want to keep this kid motivated. Any tips?
