Rule of thumb.

 Since I first started teaching guitar over 30 years ago, I have noticed some general changes in the way young students initially approach the instrument.

 

Most students now adopt the thumb overhand approach (as pictured) when they first pick up the guitar. I have also noticed this happening more often with piano students. 

In my first 20 years of teaching guitar, I only recall this happening once across thousands of students.

 

I have a theory as to why this now commonplace. It may seem obvious to you all, but I am interested to hear your opinions on this subject.
