    Thanks so much for posting all these lesson ideas! I was just googling song ideas to help teach sixteenth notes to my 3rd graders (I forgot my books at school) and your blog came up. I’m so glad it did! Thank you so much!! Can’t wait to teach this tomorrow! 🙂

  2. I’m teaching my 9 yr. old grand daughter guitar — this is a good song for the note learning , timing , and chords changes. I put it in the key of C — and only one other chord — G — . then wrote the tablature under the notes which helps her learn the scale. I’ve been playing since high school and will turn 80 soon.
