Hey Kris,

I believe you do private lessons as well, right? (not sure where I read that smile.gif )
I am trying to learn a friend of mine some stuff nowadays, but I find it hard to come up with a good order of topics.
So, if you teach people personally, what would be the order of lesson topics considering he's a complete beginner (iv'e seen the portal btw.)

Hmm this is a difficult question -

I never designed one plan which I applied to everybody - I am quite sure that if I had done that my lessons wouldn't have been very appreciated.

Instead I adapted my lesson content to the students' personal taste.

For instance if a complete beginner was interested in playing fingerstyle acoustic guitar I would not really have to start speaking about alternate picking from the start, whereas that is what I would do with a complete beginner rock guitarist.

That is my ambition with GMC as well - as soon as a complete beginner has done Andrew's first steps - the idea is to find a lesson that matches the student's musical preferences and skill level, and take it form there. This should give the most enjoyable/rewarding learning process.

I was thinking the same thing, but I just come to a certain point where I don't know which direction to go.
This guy I'm teaching wants to learn both electric and acoustic (fingerpicking)

So I start of with open chords, some songs, a little chord theorie, power chords, barre chords and 7-chords.
After that I was planning to do fingerpicking-style excercices as wel as warming up excercises on alternate picking.
Then Minor pentatonic and major scale, but after that I'm lost.

Are there more area's that every guitarist should know, or is it just pick whatever you like, country for example, after that?
