Can a beginner really study this course?

Yes! The beginner-level solo in this course is approachable and quite easy. If you've never picked up a guitar before, you probably shouldn't start here, but if you've got even a little experience under your belt, you can absolutely study this course.

How difficult is the Advanced level solo?

Of all the advanced-level solos in the SRV Style Solo Matrix, this solo is one of the easiest. Stevie didn't play super-fast licks in this song. Instead, he relied on a laid-back triplet feel with lots of bending. Most of the advanced-level solo will be approachable for late-intermediate players, but there are some spots that will be quite challenging for those with under-developed picking techniques.
