How would you advise some young(er) kids to start playing lead, jamming or improvising in music? I'm looking at a middle school aged youth band that is primarily just rhythm and singing. There are 2 guitar players doubling on rhythm. Each has access to electric, but not using it right now. The other parents and I are interested in getting the players together outside of their normal practice - which is dominated by getting singers and players on the same place at the same time. --- How should time be invested when they get together? How about things they should be doing on their own time? Genre is primarily pop/rock (major and minor keys).
