Awesome idea on learning to be on time using a metronome. You explained it so well, so simple. "Making the Nomes Disappear." I never heard that idea much less thought of it. Thanks much!
Delivered really well, I liked the personal touches and tips along the way.
Dennis has got a simply way to teach how don't hurt your self, while you increase your ability. I like that. I understand everything even if i'm not really able to speak english very well.

Good lesson. Really enjoying his teaching style and advice.
Good to know the notes I've been playing for the last 3 years
Great advice on how to warm up
Great beginner exercises to build strength, stamina, and accuracy quickly
I'm in the process off learning the notes on the neck. I do this exercise and call out the notes as I go. Getting a little faster and a little faster. Very helpful! SSSSSLLLLLLLLAAAAAAAYYYYYYEEEEERRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
not the best at explaining basics. I do however like dennis. Cause I'm a intermediate player. So I understand it. good job
Since I could only make one choice above, I want to add that I liked the teacher and the instruction was easy to understand. Great job, Dennis!
this guy is funny
Would be nice if the teacher would be a bit more concise but love this course! After teaching myself and then not playing for around 7 years picked up the guitar again and this course is exactly what I needed to pick things up again and fill in
