I taught some youths in my church some acoustic guitar last year, at the intermediate level. The primary aim was to teach them new chords and strumming patterns to use for cell group or for small events because many of them were stuck with a few open chords, and one or two strumming patterns. The topics covered were:
- Reading tablature, basic theory, transposing to another key.
- Sus chords, chords with a different bass note (e.g. G/B), power chords, 'E' chords, barre chords.
- Different strumming patterns.
Some of you might like to look through the notes, and I've put the notes online: click here to download. Scroll down to view a few sample pages.
