I had given Kennedy a sheet with several single string songs on it. We were working on one of them and I told her to go ahead and try the others if she'd like, but that I didn't even know them very well yet. I just hadn't gotten to these songs with any of my students.
So she proceeds to play the riff for Iron Man and then Crazy Train. Well done, Kennedy! I had to pull them up on YouTube (yay for the tablet as a teaching tool) and double check the actual rhythm of each. She did a really good job. I fumbled around with them a little and we practiced getting the timing right, but I had to catch up to her today. Nice.
