Topic: New Student
I had a new student start yesterday, probably the cleverest one I have ever had. A retired rocket scientist with a masters degree in mathematics. So, after teaching him the 'G' and 'D7' chords and finishing with playing 'Tom Dooley' (OK it was very slow and hesitant with gaps at chord changes but we got there) he turned to me, with sweat running down his brow, and said:
"That was the hardest hour I have ever had in my whole life............. It was also the most enjoyable".
I can live with that.
