Student wants mat'l too advanced for him??

    This applies for a situation with a mandolin student too. I have a nice, intelligent older guitar student who wants to me to teach him the Pink Floyd classic beginning to Wish You Were Here. So I worked on it to the point of being able to teach it/show it to him. My student is really a newbie and not ready to learn it. The boom chick is still a mystery to him. Will this give him a goal? What should I do?

    I replied to your similar post on the message board. When faced with the identical situation, I recommended using the 2nd 1/2 of the lesson trying to learn the advanced song and the 1st 1/2 on material appropriate to their skill level.
