Thank y'all very much for the kind words!  We are having fun learning, and they make me proud.  I find myself forgetting sometimes that they just started in August!  I will pass the comments along to them.

Great to see the impressing development of your student's playing!

John, you and “your students” are amazing.  What an impact you will prove to have on these kids lives forever.  Wonderful.

Thanks Dusty!  I am obsessed with right-hand technique (a fact that the kids will attest to lol).  I couldn't be any prouder of them for coming this far in such a short time.  You are absolutely correct about the doo-wop progression.  There are THOUSANDS of songs from that era that use the exact same chord progression.

Sounds great, John.  Getting those kids to develop a strong and steady right-hand strumming technique will provide a solid foundation for playing so many different instruments later on. Kudos to you!

And I was singing along with your doo-wop progression, but I switched tunes about 4 times.  It's amazing how many hit tunes from the 50s and 60s used that same progression.
