This is one of the most interesting apps i've ever seen! The student plugs a pair of head phones into the device if he is using an acustic guitar, if using an electric guitar, they plug the guitar right into the device. My son has an acustic guitar, so he plugs headphones into the Ipad. The ipad picks up the sound of his own playing so it can be determined if his playing matches the device! The lessons are simple - using a single string to start and get more complicated. My son had only had 1 month of real guitar lessons in the past, but he is on the 6th lesson with the program. Another awesome feature? You can slow the instruction down - so if its the first time the student is playing that particular string, they can do the lesson in half speed until they get the hang of it.
Downside? The room has to be utterly silent, since the device picks up so much sound it can get confusing for the student.
