Christmas of 08, Kelsey got a little red guitar from Santa. This year Katie got Yamaha Junior for Christmas. Years ago I gave Gina my old Yamaha FG-180 acoustic under the condition that she learned to play it. So now every one under our roof owns a guitar.
Last night after dinner, we all made our way downstairs for a family guitar lesson. I taught them some basics along with introducing them to the chords they need to play the worship song 'Here I am to Worship' (Light of the World). Katie has already been putting in a good bit of time practicing and her chords (D, A, Em, G) are sounding pretty clean already. She's already working on smooth transitions between chords.
Gina had a good time, but still feeling a little sick. Kelsey loved the lesson, learning her chord Em. We are going to continue having family guitar time together. We had a lot of fun and is encouraging to have my girls excited to learn to play guitar.
