I bought the DVD's and the RUST last summer and have been working the lessons for almost a year now. I feel the dvd's are very well made, Justin is very relaxed and it is obvious he has his teaching down to a science. It really feels like he is talking to you, and not AT you. The lessons are very well organized and if you stick with it and do what he says you will be playing the guitar. A friend of mine told me " I suggest you just get a song book and start playing" needless to say she quit because she wasn't willing to take the time to learn it correctly, I did and I'm very happy with my progress. I like having the DVD's as opposed to just watching on the computer. I can hide in my room and strum away without bothering anyone. I highly recommend buying the DVD's. I am very pleased with the beginners course.
