Un buen curso, el profesor es muy organizado, además me gusta la doble pantalla para ver el rasgueo y la pisada de la cuerda, me gusta también que se da el tiempo de hablarnos del cuidado del instrumento motiva, hay algunos detallitos, como videos que no están en todos los idiomas y pierdes un poco el hilo ya que esto ocurrió en videos donde tenias que poner mucha atención, siento, que se deberían de agregar unos videos mas sobre acordes ya que directamente pasar de básico a lenguaje musical es un poco complicado, pero da pauta a que tu busques mas a fondo la información. Hay que esforzarse y poner mucha atención si no los últimos temas se complican.

Musical syllabus is challenging, but yields rewarding accomplishment upon completion of the course.
There is insufficient staff monitoring and student support during the course. Be aware that you should be proficient in recording your music on your pc including being able to integrate chords and melodies of the same piece into one recording.
Newbies to guitar need to begin finger flexibility and strengthening exercises before starting the course as it will be difficult to keep up with the course and the required practice time if you are struggling with finger soreness and fatigue.
Nice job but somewhat slow in presentation and lumbering. The playing on recording to other students for grades is way too cumbersome. Outside of the necessary downloads, recordings, playback the course was presented well and scales and position playing were particularly helpful and clear. Position playing is not as easy as one might perceived and the Instructor did a commendable job elaborating and in particular explaining how the information can be used to be creative and improvise.
The reason not a 5 is that the grading is cumbersome and time-consuming to set up

When I started the course I was able to play guitar so it wasn't complicated to me, but absolute begginers may find this course challenging. I really love lectures because they are easy to follow and I have learned a lot about music theory! Thanks for it.
4 stars because I expected to learn more about acoustic guitar playing techniques. Moreover, there are some gaps in the lectures. For example, minor scales are not described while tasks on pentatonic minor scales design are required to complete.

Great course for learning the theory and techniques. It's difficult to master the new techniques/theory in only a week, but it builds a great foundation. After completing this course, the students should understand that there's still a lot of practice and time that needs to be put in, if playing fluently and effortlessly are the end objectives. I thoroughly enjoyed this course and plan on continuing to build upon what I learned.

It is a good course since it is for free. However, there is no mentor or instructor to give any feedback. It is you self assessing your work. Hoping your fellow students might know more than you if you have a question. Honestly, it is not the best way to learn for some people. Others might thrive in this environment. I say take it and get what you can out of it. However, you will most likely need to seek more instruction.

Really interesting course. I suggest to attend it to the ones who are approaching the guitar but also to the musicians who want to review the basics. To me the course is well done, with a good pace and inside material. The professor is clear in the explanations of the guitar/music matters and he talks in a clear a easy English, the latter being important for the ones who do not interact in English often. Enjoy!

Good introduction to basic guitar and musical concepts such as chord diagrams, tabs, musical notation. Good video lectures and challenging (for beginners) exercises after each lesson. Recording device of some type is required, even if as simple as a computer microphone and audacity.

It´s a good course, of course we need more material and more practice to learn deeper. But I think it´s a good start to know the instrument. One thing to analyse is, this is a process and the patient is a great ingredient. We don´t learn in a few hours.

I learned a great deal and will continue. I think there should be more interaction with the teacher, like play along with me. and also I think it is applied more to electric that acoustic guitar.
All in All good course. Will keep going

I have been playing for many years but there is always things to learn or re-learn. I did both during this excellent course. Hogarth goes at a moderate speed. Especially helpful was the fact Mr. Hogarth speaks slowly and clearly. How nice!
good course and deadlines to keep us in track,
but barre chords must be given more time to learn,
and the course materials many are in just videos , please try to formulate all all the tab notations in pdfs as few were just in videos
By Allan Z•
This is a great introduction to guitar, and very helpful. Before this course I played acoustic guitar for couple of years, but with this course I've got many music knowledge of theory and basic guitar playing skills.
By Darrin S•
Grate beginner course. Gives you an understanding of basic music theory to help understand how to solo over scales as well as basic strumming and picking. Better than any YouTube video I have tried.
By Ubirajara d O C J•
Very good! This course give you a solid introduction to the world of guitar. Easy to follow, clear explanations and examples. I strongly recommend it (and look forward hearing from the next one!)
By Anand H•
This is a very simple to understand course and Thaddeus H instruction style is easy to follow and practice. I really enjoyed learning a lot of new things about the Guitar in this course.

UN curso con la calidad y calidez humana magnifico, con calidad y profesionalismo excelente, gracias.
Con un poco más de esfuerzo hablado en español estaría completo, felicitaciones.
By Tim M•
This is a good beginner's course, with clear instructions guiding the student along a progressive path. I'm not convinced that the peer review system is of much use at this level.
By Sagar R•
Really a good course for beginners. Helps you swim in the vastness of music and guides you gently towards the deep end. I'll advise every aspiring guitarist to do this course.
By Marília Z•
The course is very good! Amazing how the elements are covered and explained. The only thing I missed was more exercises, more scales to practice.
By Donna N•
Thadeus is very patient sounding and doesn't rush and explains things completely. Practicing really helps you keep up with the class.
By Nicolas C•
I really enjoyed the course. I felt some quizzes were too hard for the material previously covered and required several attempts.
By David S P•
Happy with the experience, the teacher and the course. I found several lessons a bit difficult for my guitar level though.
