Give him a few months to get a good grasp of being able to play and start teaching him Music Theory.

ye, i agree, if u teach someone power chords before real chords they never bother learning them. Always teach proper chords first, strumming and picking them

Teach her open chords first and wait till she gets caluses. Have her play simple songs that require these chords. Have her learn chord progression (at least the basic ones, don't go into anything fancy). After that, teach her scales.

The Man Who Sold The World as perfored by Nirvana's a great example...has open chords and two scales in the song.

And before he died, Taran-Ish had scrawled upon the altar of chrysolite with coarse shaky strokes the sign of DOOM.

If you have to ask us what you should teach someone, you shouldn't be teaching at all.

Go slowly, and just show them the basics then they can learn some easy tabs by themselves
#11
Teach him how to not listen or play any Nirvana songs. Teach him stuff that'll help him, not something that'll stop any potential progress.
#12
yeah start with open chords.... e, a, and d. then you can get some form of song going. and you have the bonus of not having to listen to smells like teen spirit over and over and over.

i agree, learning simple riffs when you have just started playing guitar is no way to go.

I'll give you a hint. You can use your penis as one, but it might be a little painful.

do not teach her. most girls want to learn how to play just cause it looks cool but when they see it actually requires work they're like "no i dont think im good enough cause im lazy and intend to rely on looks the rest of my life"
#22
dont learn her Tab. learn her how to read music and notes. then she will be teached the basics of music
