Hey, my kids (15 and 13) listen to metal since they are 3. At the time it was Rainbow, Black Sabbath and Twisted Sister mostly ^^
Of course it had an impact on their views on music :roll:
My son is into drawing, but my daughter has decided in march 2017 to learn electric guitar - i teach her.
Here is the first official result, please tell me what you think of it ;)

Her playing sounda very clear for a guitarist who has practiced for a year. You should teach her vibrato though.

Thanks for your comment!
As for the vibrato, yeah i showed her how it's supposed to be done, but right now she cannot handle it. She's too busy to avoid making noise with open strings.
And when she tries it she tends to bend the string instead of making it vibrate. That shit is not easy to master :D But she will succeed at some point.

Also i don't want to spam but when she plays power chords her fingers seem steady and don't fidget around. When i first started guitar, i could stretch my fingers like that only for a short period of time and then i would have to take a break. That's another positive aspect of your daughter's playing. Keep up the good job of teaching her!

Thank you for your opinion, i translated your thoughts to her and now she's actively working on her vibrato xD

It’s very nice that you are sharing your passion with your kids. Just the fact that she’s willing to put time and effort into learning to play the guitar and metal music is a big success already. She’s also very skilled for a guitarist who’s been playing for only a year. I hope she’ll persevere. Congrats to both of you. Keep up the good work!

hey, thank you very much for your encouragements :)
Yes she is willing to learn more and master the instrument at some point. She showed the last vid to her friends and she's getting a small popularity at her school xD I think it helps her in a way, every musician love that feeling. So she's working harder since. ATM we're working on a mid-tempo Megadeth tune with a tricky rhythm part during the solo, to make her ups & downs precise, sharp and faster, and to strengthen her ring finger & pinky too.
Also she is doing her first steps into the bend area. It reminds me of how much i struggled with this :/
