The Beginner Guitar Lessons for Kids Book with Online Video & Audio Access by Jay Wamsted was designed to help the absolute beginning student learn to play the guitar. This step by step course is designed for elementary school-aged children (ages 5-10) and quickly teaches the student to play songs they will know and love. These lessons start by playing beginner chord shapes (G, C, G7, D) that are easier for younger students with smaller hands. Song arrangements and strum patterns were carefully selected to help children have early success playing the guitar. This course will help the young beginner avoid getting frustrated and quitting the instrument.
The next section of the book teaches the same songs but with full chord shapes. This can be used for either a beginner with larger hands or for a student who is now ready to expand their playing. This course includes online access to video instruction and audio tracks. The video lessons allow the child to hear and see how each song is played from a rhythm and technique standpoint. The video also shows the guitar, both hands, and the sheet music on-screen at the same time.
