great lesson. I really like the format and structure. It will really help me to learn the core of this song. I do wish there was a section, maybe even optional to level up and learn the solo as well. I know you dont want to intimidate new players; however, if there were a level up button to go into the solo instruction, that could be a separate lesson to link to. There is def enough material here to get any intermediate guitarist jamming with some bandmates. love it and keep jamming.

The lessons are easy to follow, well paced and I love the variety of instructors. However, just make sure there's no delay in audio playback if you're using Bluetooth to play through you amp. My timing was off until I switched to phone audio. One frustration though, the practice and feedback modes are hard to use on mobile. The text is too small and the screen doesn't adequately scroll. The inconsistent speed of the temp depending on the bar length is off putting.

Made it through the first session great until the end. As the last video I was going to watch for the night finished, the app decided to crash. I accidentally clicked the app open and it flashed twice, then said can not connect to path (I believe are the words.) Thinking it was weird I force stopped the app and opened it back to the same issue. Next step was a phone reset because I was determined to fix the issue but got the same result. Opened the app to look for support and ended up at "contact support." Guess what happened after I started typing up my issue? The app once again crashed. Using an up to date Samsung Galaxy S8 active. Very frustarting.
