?? Teaching a beginner - Chord Changes
Ok heres the story. I've been teaching my younger cousin now for a little over a month. He's never played guitar before, but he has about 6 years trumpet experience.
When I've been teaching him scales and excersise like that he has no problem, and picks up at what I believe to be at a normal pace. I've taught him major and minor chords (in the open positions) and he has no problems memorizing or playing them.
Where he struggles, and maybe because I'm not going about this the right way, is making chord changes. I started teaching him something I thought would be easy, 3 Doors Down's Kryptonite, but the chord change from B to G is problematic.
I also taught him Van Halen's 316, which at a "slow" pace he can handle, but at normal speed the chord changes jus aren't happening.
Is there something I can be doing to help him progress that maybe I'm not thinking of.
BTW, all of the lessons thus far are strictly acoustic, I haven't even let him hold an electric yet.
