    Super awesome stuff mate, great for a... I'm not sure if I'm a beginner or an advanced beginner, but the material is great for people in my skill range!

    Only downside for me is I can't read sheet music at all... That's more of a *me* failing than anything else though. I just can't... figure it out. I'm working on it though! I know where G is on the treble staff now! :D
    Lesser, greater, middling, it's all the same. Proportions are negotiated, boundaries blurred. I'm not a pious hermit, I haven't done only good in my life. But if I'm to choose between one evil and another, then I prefer not to choose at all.-Geralt of Rivia

    Back in the dark ages, when dinosaurs roamed the earth, I learned "Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge" for the lines of the staff. Or "Favour" if you want to go by the title of the Moody Blues record.

    So, just skip the PDF step they're only there in case you find an exercise hard enough to need getting it under your fingers before tackling the video.

    Most of the exercises are simple enough and repetitive enough that you don't need to be able to read anyways. Click on the short audio example (the black triangles in the "What You'll Play" column) and figure it out by ear (or even click on the "Give it a Go" example and look at the moving fretboard dots). If you can play the audio example at the speed of the Give it a Go example, and can transpose up a fourth (eg the audio example's in Am – try playing it in Dm, then Gm), then you're good to go. Keep your eye on the moving fretboard dots just to confirm that you're in the correct position.

    The videos are simply backing tracks with when-needed visual info – I doubt that anyone is doing any reading past the second or third page.
