Hi, not sure if I'm asking this in the right place. I have my first "propper", eg i dont know them and they are paying, student starting soon and I was just after some advice.. I've got a lesson plan in mind which I'm quite happy with but I was watching myself play and I realised that my thumb is always above the e string when I play. I've never really given a second thought about it until I thought back to my early guitar lessons and being told that was incorrect technique.. my question is do I force myself to play correctly and put my thumb behind the neck to teach the student, play normally and just tell them to put their thumb behind the neck or just tell them to do what's comfortable? I do put my thumb behind the neck for bar chords so I wasn't sure if I should force the correct technique to avoid confusion later..
If anyone has any other tips for teaching I'd love to hear them also as I've never taught a non family member before, the fact I'm being paid makes me worry lol!
