i wasnt sure where to post this so i just posted here in the pit.

my nephew is 9 years old he is learning to play guitar but he got small hands and i cant really teach him chords or complex songs since he lacks reach in his hands and doesnt have too much strength yet.

he came to visit me for a few days but he has to go in one or two days and he doesnt have a teacher or anybody that can teach him in his country so i taught him how to read tabs and so far he is doing a great job

my problem is i dont know what songs to teach him

so far im teaching him the james bond theme since almost all of it is in one string

what are some piece of cake songs that are almost all of it on one string or that are simply enough for him to play

any help is appreciated

I take it he doesn't have access to a shorter scale guitar at the moment. Maybe you can take an acoustic ballad like "Yesterday" and have him play the vocals on guitar while you the strum chords.

I just love the title "he has small hands"

thats just awesome.. its like wow ;o

Something simple, i would say snow patrol chasing cars, but that might be a little stretch for him. I dont remember the first thing i played either D:
Fender Special Edition Custom Telecaster FMT HH in Crimson Red
Reverend Sensei HB FM in Tobacco Burst
Fender Vintage C Neck, HH, Surf Green Nitrocellulose (Handmade)

Smells Like Teen Spirit SOLO, it's cool enough for a 9 year old and, hey, it's a solo!!!

The first song I learned was Stranger Things Have Happened by the Foo Fighters. It's on 3 strings, but stays on the top 3 frets.
