We have just bought our ten year old son an electric Guitar and Amp. Took advice from HUKD and got a second hand Yamaha Pacifica and then got a Ashton G10 Amp.
Neither me or my partner are musical in any way.
I am very willing to pay for lessons but thought we would try for a month or two to try and get him to just learn a bit either via the internet or a good book. I figure we will then know for sure that he is committed to learning before we pay for lessons. My reasoning being that alot of my friends sons have done the same and given up after about 3 months after the parents have spent quite a lot on lessons already.
Does anyone think my idea is good or bad i would really appreciate honesty. Particularly interested what any guitarists think about this.
Does anyone know of any good websites that give starter type lessons that he could work through for a few weeks.
Thanks in advance.
