Good for beginners.

I'm a beginner and that's my first guitar lesson, I'm very happy with the content of this course. The only thing I don't like is that we don't have a pdf support for the various examples songs that the teacher plays along the course. And so, I was able to play them by ears, because I was already an experienced musician before taking this course, but I can see that this would be a problem for a person who starts music and guitar altogether. But for me, the course was just perfect to start with the guitar.
