We received a free review copy of Volume One of Jean Welle’s Worship Guitar as part of the TOS Crew. Just so you know where we stood, Nolan has been learning to play guitar through his homeschool co-op’s music class. However, because co-op only meets once per week, and they don’t play guitar every week, he has spent (too much) time at home sort of teaching himself. He seems to have a knack for it, but I was concerned that he might be developing bad habits. I know for sure that he needed more instruction in the basics. When we received this, he thought he was beyond it, honestly, but even though he already knew much of the information included, some things were brand new to him and critical to building a good foundation.
Volume One includes seven lessons on DVD, a small booklet kept inside the DVD case, and a larger book with detailed lessons and songs. (The DVD and accompanying booklet are in English and Spanish.) Jean is super gentle and easy-going as she teaches, encouraging prayer and worship throughout each lesson. She begins with the absolute basics and quickly (but appropriately) progresses through a variety of chords. I know the lessons have helped cement the foundation Nolan needs as he continues the play.

We received a free book and DVD for review. I was not compensated. My opinions are my own.
