Sweep picking and multifinger tapping.

No, don't. Then you end up like me, and too many other people with improper technique, and having to spend hours of additonal practice attempting to fix it.

Go with basic techniques, Hammer ons and pull offs, basic playing skills. Once they have controll of their fingers, teach them theory such as chords and scales and how they correlate. Also note names, if they don't know already.

And then escalate from that.

Barre Chords. They may not think there useful but they are wrong

haha i never made that mistake i just started out with a metronome and i play the chromatic scale and a proper scale at least once a day

sweep and tapping should not be your main focus. it should be a side thing, like a side job, it shouldn't be as important as ur primary job.

just make it as simple as possible. i know anyone ive ever tried to show how to play has quit simple because of frustration...

maybe i was just teaching arrogant pricks that thought they were supposed to be hendrix in an hour...

yes, pointing it at your head will send the sound towards your head.


it's the same with guns too, before you go testing that one.

Theres plenty of videos on the things u listed. instead, you should make a video of what not to do, i.e., common newb mistakes that lead to bad habits.
