Okay well starting this Sunday, I'm going to be giving my band's singer guitar lessons, she's a self-taught drummer of 4yrs experiance.
I'm sort of just jotting down what to start her off on to help stop me jumping about and this is what I got so far:

Starting off
-----
Am/M-PENTATONIC,explain it played all over neck going
'E, F, F#, G, G#, A, A#, B, C, C#, D, D#' from 0-12th fret.

E,A,D Major chords

Fretting,Strumming

Practice chords over,increase speed and dexterity

Get improvised solo over the rhythm, with the scale

simple song:

Later on
-------
E,A,D Minor Chords

Palm Muting

Reading Tabs

More scales

More advanced song:

Even later
---------
Power chords

Pinch Harmonics

String muting

Songs using powerchords,ph,more:



I really could do with help on what songs to teach her, later on it will end up more punk orientated ._. But for the first few songs? Not anything like Happy Birthday because, I hate those things myself and I know she'll just put down the guitar playing those -_-
Any other things you can think of post!

Well my issue with powerchords is they tend to take over when you play cause there alot easier to play them normal chords and such...so Idont want them to come in to early

If your aiming for punk... Why not just power chords and palm muting as well as finger muting.

Then teach a few simple songs like Minor Threat and Oi Oi Oi.

But I may be thinking of the wrong stuff... :P

Well first song I'm thinking off teaching is 'Bro Hymn' by Pennywise, then some NoFx and Dead Kennedys ?..

I am going to go into the punk style stuff earily, but I want her to have a base to go on into other things and experiment, something thats purely punk. Why I'm thinking of starting on minor/major chords and scales...

But, yeah I did ask for opinions and help =D so thanks for the responses, keep 'um coming.

Personally, if she's going to be playing guitar in a punk band, then I would teach her the names of the notes on the low E and A strings up to the 7th fret, and teach her power chords. Teach her A5, D5 and E5, as they can be played as open power chords, and teach her the A minor pentatonic so she can learn a simple lead to play over those chords.

ACDC aren't punk, but their songs are quite simple to learn though, and feature similar chord progressions to what can be found in punk.

I didnt know punk used power chords. @ Nutter : If shes never picked up a guitar you could teach her the basic and easy shapes like E A D with those chords you could play Back in Black (EDA) and teach her the easy pentatonic lick. Once she plays songs she will become interested.

@League: That's what I was thinking =D Just couldn't really decided some songs to teach her.

@BHS: Forgive me, what ones are E5,G4,A5. I don't know the names of half the chords I play...silly self teaching and no music theory =| I'll teach her both the major and minor A pentatoinic scale =D

e------X-----X-----X
b------X-----X-----X
g------X-----X-----X
d------X-----X-----X
a------2-----5-----7
e------0-----3-----5


first is E5 then G5 then A5

a "5"chord is a powechord without the root note's octave.

the 5 refers to the 5th interval.

i.e. a G5 is a G and D.

in contrast to a normal power chord which would be the G D and the higher G.

hope that helps

I said A5, D5 and E5.



A5 D5 E5
E ------------------|
B ------(3)---------|
G (2)----2----------|
D -2-----0----(2)---|
A -0-----------2----|
E -------------0----|


The frets in brackets are the octaves of the root note, and can be left out at first.

Those three chords form the basis of a I-IV-V progression, which is what bands like The Ramones played loads.
