Thorough, fun, intuitive...amazing for beginners

After just a week, I amazed my family and friends on how much I learned in such a short period of time. Ivan Max is a great instructor. He's clear, thorough, and showcases a level of experience that makes the student feel comfortable and confident.

The app is also very well made with different, easy to follow chapters and categories. You can add videos to your favorites list and check off videos you've seen. You can even reset your progress if you choose to.

Overall, I am very pleased with the caliber of this app, and that's why I gave it 5 stars.

Great app

I've been farting around on guitar for almost 20 years but never got serious about learning how to play the right way until now. The lessons are easy to understand and seem to be parsed out in a logical progression. The instructor is very likable and the greatest asset to this app. He is relaxed, affable, and encouraging. Well worth the 2 bucks and then some.

Loved this app as a beginner

App works great. The instructor is awesome. Wish I could have him continue to teach me in real life. Just picked up guitar after barely having played at all as a kid and this app worked wonders as a refresher and a great introduction to some of the basics of guitar.
