Hey, I just started teaching guitar for the first time. I'm teaching a kid and I just had my 4th week with him and I'm trying to find way to kill time in the lesson because I cant really teach him anything untill he gets the concept of pushing his fingers down on the fretboard really hard so that it doesent ring.

Is there anyway i can better explain this to him so he can understand how to do it correctly?

Thanks, LTB

well use really slow songs that can give him time to adjust his fingers if it needs more pressing.....like... wish you were here....by floyd ( the rhythm of course ) hehehe

good luck bro

Any slower songs with either open or power chords in an easy progression would work. There's a whole list of beginner's songs around here that would have a lot of ideas.
