Teach her the main riff to seven nation army. I've taught a girl and assumed I'd teach her what I had learned for my first song, Smells like teen spirit, but she couldn't seem to get the power chords.

She'll probably feel good about being to play it if she's heard it.

As usual, C.C Deville has it right, but in all seriousness just teach her teen spirit, nice and easy, with a solo too.

Teach her F*ck Her Gently by Tenacious D.


Hopefully she'll get the message.

yeah ive had girls ask me to teach them and stuff... usually what you do is you get her to come over, first you just shred around and show off for a bit then you get down to teaching her, teach her how to hold the guitar first (great opportunity to get close to her), then teach her how to play a note and all that good stuff, if your smooth enough you could end up with her by the end of the night =D

I seriously doubt that anyone who hasn't played guitar can just pick it up and play Smells Like Teen Spirit, especially the solo.

I personally think you should teach her how to play. It can be an easy way to get into a deeper relationship with her.

Maybe you can teach her Time of Your Life by Green Day (not the intro, but atleast the chords).

parts of the guitar, tune, string names, frets, open chords (major and minor), powerchords, A minor pentatonic, simple song.

that's what I learned at the beginning, in that order. But I am self taught so I probably did it wrong.

Er I found SLTS easier that TOYL. Way easier. And I could play Teen Spirit as soon as I picked up a guitar. (But I knew bass for a year first, so I guess that's cheating..?)
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

fooks sake theres so many threads on this, i swear theres one every week lol


anyway, ill stop complaing and contribute.

Teach her some chromatic excersises and tell her to them every time she picks up the guitar before she starts playing, it'll give her stringer fings, thus making learning easier. Then teach her simple rifss and a bit of theory. End of lesson one.

If you want to get into her pants, make it seem hard, so she thinks you are amazing at guitar, then sit next to her and help her position the guitar while slyly getting close to her. Just be yourself, once done with guitar suggest you chill and listen to some music or something, then make you move, if you played yoru cards right everything will go fine.

oh dear god no.

I've been in exactly this same position.

don't do it. At most you'll just carry on as friends.

at worst, she'll feel to awkward around you to even make eye contact, and you'll lose a friend.

She probably doesn't even think of you that way because if she did, then you'd know about it and you wouldn't have to do anything (at least that if she's anything like the girl I liked)

Transitioning a single note (bass) to a powerchord (SLTS) is a lot easier than going from a single note to open chords (TOYL).

tell her to alternate pick the open strings 6 to one down up down ect.the do string skipping while alternating on the open strings 6-4-2-4-6 then 5-3-1-3-5 all on open strings she will think its a good practice and an easy one,then move on to this

0-1-0-2-0-3-0-4
D U D U D U D U

on the fret board
and run it trhough all the strings starting on 1E

Some are. But you'll have to do more than just teach her to play if you want to be with her. You're good friends, yes? Well, over time, start to show her you like her as more than just a friend. Take her out somewhere, treat her well and just be nice to her. Don't use this as a way to get her to like you as anything more than a good friend, though - it'll make her think that's the only reason you taught her to play, and chances are she'll be rather upset about that.

Ever heard of the friend zone?

it's nigh on impossible to get out of.

and not all girls are obsessed with looks, but neither are all guys.

of course looks are gonna play some part in it. It'd be naive to think otherwise.

and beauty is subjective anyway.

but this is starting to look like it belongs in the relationship thread. so either concentrate on the teaching material, or take it over there.

I suggest starting with basic chords, and get her used to alternating between chords, and get her into basic soloing.

do you think it would be better to teach an easy song to get her into it then other stuff

I'd finish the lesson with a simple song so she can see how those techniques are applied.

If you teach her the song, she'll be able to play it but won't understand it.
