5 Easy Songs to Learn on Guitar
When your child is just getting started, the guitar is a difficult instrument to learn. Fingers hurt, frets buzz, and the six strings have letter names and number names. Not to mention, there are so many other musical skills to learn, like rhythm, guitar tab, and standard notation. It’s no wonder more than 90% of people quit the guitar within the first twelve months of picking it up.
That’s where the concept of quick wins comes in. These five easy songs will help your child acquire quick wins. Quick wins are great because they help your child develop confidence, build momentum, and experience success. With five quick wins under your child’s belt, he or she is more likely to fall into the second category of guitarists: that 10% of guitarists who stick with the guitar for life and gaining the lifelong benefits of playing a musical instrument in the process.
