Before I get into the actual review, I'd like to mention that there's a loud static noise that happens around 8 and a half minutes into lesson 6. Someone should fix that as soon as possible. As for the actual review itself, I would have to say that this course does well at covering all of the essentials one would need to know before playing the guitar. It's a great start, and I would recommend it to anyone who has never picked up a guitar before but wants to know how to play one.
Thank you for a great beginner class. My daughter really enjoyed it and can't wait to do the next class;-) Definitely recommended for beginners.

Miss Bateman, I’m a student that’s been trying to learn guitar by myself, and I really think that your videos for this course are really helpful. I’m already getting better at my chords! Thank you so much!
