Ben is a nine year old lad, and a complete beginner when he started learning the guitar, and we are now working on Rock School Guitar Grade 2.
What Ben is now playing
Ben plays a strat like his hero John Fuschanti and has chosen to do two songs from the Hot Rocks (sister book of the Rock School grades); Fleetwood Mac’s, ‘Albatross’ and Red Hot Chilli Peppers, ‘Californication’. Each song requires learning very different guitar techniques, with finger slide on Albatross and cord strumming and bends on Californication. The Hot Rock books are a great addition to the Rock School Book series, especially for kids, who can play the guitar licks of their heroes.
The future for Ben
Ben will be taking his Grade 2 Rock School Exams after Christmas.
