i had to learn 4 classical songs in the summer vacation but i completely forgot a bout them and now i still have to do them all ! and my dad says if i 'don't do my best then i'll stop paying for your lessons'. he'll probably think i just didn't want to learn them... and then i'd have to quit guitar !!! my lesson is in 2 days... what should i do ??

Find the 4 easiest songs you can, get off UG, and start practising.

learn the songs? how long are they?

it's too late to learn them now, they're all about 3 pages each, and quite hard...

Just 'do your best'. Normally when parents say that, they mean 'do your best', not '**** off and die if you don't get it perfect'. Unless your dad's a ****face, in which case, lamp him one.

... I don't think he can make his point any clearer than it already was, so I'm just going to say that you cannot possibly learn to really play in 1 month. By really play, I mean with good technique and theory knowledge.

How the hell do you forget the songs. I mean, they give you all summer, and if your really into guitar, wouldn't you be playing really quite often? I just fail to see how you conveniantly forgot? If I was your dad I wouldn't wanna pay for your lessons either, they 're not cheap ya know. And plus, you don't even need lessons to learn guitar, its a big help, but it's not, like you'll never get any better if you don't take them.

ahahhaah everything about theory. Well if someone told me they could play and just played a song with open chords I'd be disappointed.But since that's all you want I won't flame


Lol my guitar teacher's great because he doesn't remember what you did last week so if you screwed it up bad or something you can just say you were doing something else.

I agree with this whole post. I even have a similar guitar teacher.
