I think from seeing me chunk, she started it doing it while I was chunking anyway. So cute, she's 4yo. She's dressed in an owl Halloween costume and random tights. My funky girl. LOVE HER!

Oh, how cute! That sigh when you adjust her hair... "Mom, please, I'm trying to play." :rotfl:
She's got a pretty good grasp of rhythm for a four year old! I bet she grows up to be an amazing musician. :)

Yeah I am fairly impressed by her rhythm also! I think though if you take small kids and work with them on this stuff they take to it very quickly. Most people don't bother to get a 4yo music lessons :) I've learned though she doesn't need to go every week. I think at her age twice a month or once a month is enough if there is music being played in the home some.

Great job, mom! Teach her the A7 chord and teach her the Coconut Song (it's a one chord song)

"You put the lime in the coconut and shake it all up...

She has a surprizing sense of timing and rythym for such a young age. Ric

She's had about 3 lessons so that helped loads, he had way more luck teaching her the chords and I've had more luck teaching her the strumming :) Thanks :D
