4. Get Ralph to play the chords.
5. Work on his weaknesses, develop his strengths.
6. Decide together on the next piece to learn.


Learn the A-Team by that man up there.

Learn the chords with the iPad and Chord sheet.
Copy Andrew your teacher.
Watch interactive videos to understand how to play chords better on your guitar.

Enjoy yourself.
Ask questions.
Try your hardest.
Practice on your own.
