    Hello Andy,
    Great work and comments. Keeping track of your progress is always inspiration to keep moving forward.

    Thanks to all for your time and help.

    Hi again Andy! I was just talking to a buddy of mine who is something of an accomplished guitar player, and he said he thinks you should not classify this just for beginners. He thinks you should note that this would be very helpful for sub novice players as well so they can touch on points they may not have learned especially if they have been playing for a couple years and are completely self taught. They will learn things with this program that they need and they may learn something here that will help them progress farther as some self taught players get in a rut when they can’t seem to progress any farther do to things such as “bad habits” and the like.

    The week numbers down the left side and the arrows make sense, but I think the titles across the top are confusing. It’s not clear what they mean.

    • Andy says:

      Hi Colin my thinking with the number system i’ve used, is that it’s there to structure the information, rather than be an indicator of the actual weeks. The reason being that as people progress, they will start to learn things in parallel rather than sequentially. So they may be learning a melody line from one song at the same time as a strumming sequence from another, so i didn’t want to be too regimented to say “only do this in week 3” or “this is what you have to do in week 4”. However having spent time going through everyone’s comments, I realise that it would be helpful to give beginners and idea of what they should be doing week by week, so they can assess their progress – maybe like a downloadable progress chart or something for them to record their sessions, like a check list? What do you think?

      • Colin Bowling says:

        Hi Andy
        I think it can look like you will be only learning two songs over the six weeks as it is now, which could put people off. I do think a downloadable chart is a good idea – people love ticking boxes.

      • William Alley Sr says:

        Hi Andy, I agree with Colin about the progress chart with check boxes, when people have things to check off of the chart they can visually see their progress and that will definitely boost confidence and the feeling of accomplishment!

    I like the simple outline and comment above regards measurement of progress. This (how am I progressing?)is always difficult for a student. Possible mention in the beginning outline that (if possible) the student does periodic recording of practice session material for comparison in helping to make this measurement.

  5. Gary Stout says:

    Might add text to explain that we will be filling this out as we go so student knows to come back to it often.

  6. Jack Runnels says:

    also there is no place that shows where you think a student should be in the six week plan. something like basics and skills basics first 2 weeks song 1, 3rd and 4th week. song 2, 5th and 6th week

  7. Jack Runnels says:

    Good overview of the 6 week plan
    Maybe you could add a print off chart with daily boxes to track progress

  8. Ronnie Holderfield says:

    This is the best way to learn the guitar, and I really like the language that you use.

    6 week plan? 6 weeks plan?
    Good overview.
