    Comparative adjective (good) VS Comparative adverb (well)

    Hi,
    I'm learning American English using Rosetta Stone and the software uses "well" instead of "good" for actions:

    1. The music is good.
    2. He drives well.

    But I checked the Merriem-Webster and "good" can also be an adverb. I'm wondering is it better (or more correct) to use "well" for actions as the software do?

    I would be grateful for any suggestion. And sorry, I misspelled the title. It should be: "Adjective (good) VS adverb (well).
    Thank you!

    "He drives good" is incorrect.

    So, I suppose we use "well" when describing a verb.
