I'm a guitar teacher that teaches beginners and intermediates almost 5 times a week. I've been teaching for 2 years now, mostly using a nylon strings guitar (I'm Brazilian, it's used in popular music here, students are not very interested in classical guitar hahah), recently with a Stratocaster as well, so the basic stuff has become automatic. But since I worked for so many hours a week, I want to improve while doing it.
To put some dynamics on it, I started doing the same basic chords using fingers I'm not used to (like doing C major with fingers 2, 3 and 4) and using my right-hand pinky when suitable.Yesterday I thought about doing chord inversions with intermediate students, but soon these will become automatic as well, I think.
Could you guys give me any tips for improving my technique while teaching and playing basic stuff, like those 4 chord songs? Thanks in advance!
