My son started playing guitar eight months ago for the first time as a beginner, and I recorded these three songs from my iphone after eight months. Can someone provide feedback on his progress based on what your hear here?

PS: These songs were recorded from my iphone without double track, editing and recorded once.

The kid sounds great. But you already know that. And if you don't, you shouldn't be the one trying to guide him. Father to father.


This year the diet is definitely gonna stick!

Thank you. I know absolutely nothing about guitar and I wouldn't even attempt to guide him. I just start playing guitar for the first time myself at the age of 53

Don't know nothing about the guitar? and that with such a name? Martin and Taylor

BTW the first track " song 1 " is called Asturias by Isaac Albeniz and if he only playes 8 months then you have got a genius on your hands.

I don't know about genius. He has Learning Disorder

The covid-19 pandemic has made many things come to a grinding halt. I am glad my boy pickup guitar as his outlet during that time. He is in college but doing virtual learning. I told him the pandemic will not last forever and that when he steps his foot onto campus next year, he will be "the man" with the ladies. Wish my parents told me that when I was growing up.

I uploaded a couple more songs that he played. I think he played "heart of life" and "story of my life" after five and six months on the guitar, respectively. Let me know what you guys think about his progress, good or bad: https://soundcloud.com/john-mayer-138996963

P.S. I am also taking guitar for the first time myself recently. I am just starting playing open chords but my fingers are hurting so bad that I am practicing 15 minutes a day at most.
