My nephew wants to learn to play guitar... Is age nine too early to start? He's a great kid, sensitive and sweet. We've been meeting once a week for 1/2 hour and he's picking a few things up, but I can tell he's a little frustrated. I told him it would be hard, physically painful and he seems okay with that. I feel like it will be a long time before he is able to make music and I don't know how the delay of gratification works for a nine-year-old... His mom says he is getting in the habit of quitting stuff when it "gets too hard." She wants to supervise his practice times, just to make sure he practices. She's got two daughters playing musical instruments and they are doing well. She makes them practice. Anyway, what do you guys think? I can give him lessons to start, but where do I start? And so on... I'm sure there's stuff I haven't thought of... Acoustic first, then electric? Help!!
