Anyone else struggling to follow this course?!
Really struggling to follow this course. He seems to be glossing over a lot of important stuff, and copying and pasting things into templates without giving any real explanation of what it does. Way too much theory and not enough step by step demonstration. Very disappointing, as I really wanted something to kick start my Genesis learning. Will probably need to look elsewhere.

Struggling to follow this also. I think just pause the video when you are thinking ?what?! and google to try and understand and then move on?
I feel the same about this course, too. Even the part about git, using SourceTree and BitBucket I had to replay and re-do 4 times. Now finally understand how it works by trying things out on my own. I might give up on this course, too and look at your recommended lynda.com course. I want to customise a studiopress theme for a client project, not build from scratch.
I feel like this course should be named "How to convert CSS to SASS" but even then it's not detailed enough. The "Defaults" lesson was pretty much "here's the CSS from the Hueman theme, I'm going to condense it into SASS off camera". Then the next section is called "Media Queries and Mobile-First" and it explains what those are. I'm fairly certain if you're expected to understand SASS, you probably know the definitions of media query and mobile-first.
