Subject: Help with lesson plan

Hi all,
I teach once a week at a drug rehab for teen boys. They only had one guitar, and I previously could only teach one at a time. Now they have five guitars.

I am looking for your suggestions for teaching five at once. Most of them have never picked up a guitar before. My goal is to teach something really simple that we can all play together at the end of the hour. (I could sing) So... perhaps a song? What would you choose?

Thanks everyone, for any suggestions.

Google "one chord songs for guitar" for some ideas. Best of luck :)

Iko,Iko is a familiar two chord song you can teach it to a group of beginners for their first lesson-I've done it many times.

Not done much group work for a while, but I found a good trick was to find the one who was having the most difficulty and let them play my guitar, which in those days was a Taylor. It was amazing the reaction to holding and playing a good instrument. I varied this among the group and most went on to become proficient players. That aside, it was a matter of slow and steady.
