The sky is the limit, If my fingers can catch up to my brain.

Congratulations! Overview Video
The course began with the absolute basics and helped me understand what I should be doing. As I was a beginner and have never even touched a guitar before I learned a lot about the anatomy of the guitar, the frets, notes, etc. It really helped build my confidence in going further and completing this course
I already play but am looking to improve. The introduction was very helpful for me to understand how to get the most from course.
Could be a great course but I couldn't get past all the excessive dialogue. For example he points out that he is using a $15,000 guitar. When the actual teaching is being done, it is great.
I was just thinking about my age and if I can finish to learn the guitar, I always wanted to since I was a girl. It was great to hear those myths that are not true. Great start and motivation
idk he looks like a great teacher but he just kinda rambles a bit which im fine with he is so far looking lie hw knows what his doing.
This site is pathetic. Even after so many videos playing simultaneously on youtube, the videos here keep hanging. Its a nightmare.
No, it seems not to be a good match, he talks a lot, does not show you how to play anything, maybe I am jumping the gun, I will see in later lessons.
The instructor is very thorough and relatable and knows what beginning guitarists struggle with so he makes sure to cover all the details and urge students to master each technique before moving on to the next one.
Till now its going well. I am learning it. I left it in between but now I am seriously after it. From today onwards I will be carrying the pick everywhere to make myself comfortable with the pick and also hold the guitar always at my home while doing certain works. Thank You Sir.
I've been playing guitar for a few years, but I never had guitar lessons. I decided to (re)start off from the very beginning, and I'm learning some important bits even from the beginner's section.
I already watched a few videos of him on YouTube, so I already had an impression that he was a good teacher.
Very understandable the way you teach. Even the little things that make a big difference right away.
this guy talks to much, tell much stories... a lot of useless videos apparently just to sell a course that, from the outside, seems a lot of hours hence content. Actually not much. Go straight to the point my friend...
Erich is a great teacher. When he actually delves into the topic, it sinks right in. The exercises are great as well as are the PDFs. My main reason for the low rating is that the course is not well organized. There are disparate videos from entirely different series/YouTube that have been arranged in a very loose semblance of an order. This is probably due to the low cost of the Udemy model but it does not look like Erich actually sat down and recorded a whole course. Someone just took a whole bunch of his videos and organized them to sell as a course. Having said that, I still learned more than I ever have. But do look into his own site where he sells courses.
i did exactly what he said beforehand, by intuition, and he's correct.. I feel he's genuine so far.. and easy on the eyes... he's hot.
