My daughter is coming along nicely with her "Classical Guitar" lessons, she's close to her birthday and has been eyeing a "pink sparkly electric guitar" (the atomic pink Daisy Rock short scaled single-cut*) and it dawned on me. Both of us really only know how to "play songs". I've never just jammed or improvised either.
What can I work on for the next two months to be ready to "just jam" in a fun, easy (for now) way? I've been playing the teacher accompaniment parts of her working pieces, so we've got experience playing together, but I'd like to shoot for something more than just electrified versions of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" (six variations) and "Lightly Row".
*She played the Hello Kitty Strat in the nearest GC (suitably impressing the salesman with her "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" medley), but she said she liked the Daisy Rock better. The almost six-year-old has GAS and recognizes the better instrument
I really like this book: [VIDEO]http://www.amazon.com/Chord-Tone-Soloing-Guitarists-Improvising/dp/0634083651]Chord Tone Soloing: A Guitarist's Guide to Melodic Improvising in Any Style (Musicians Institute: Private Lessons): Barrett Tagliarino[/VIDEO]
