Take your time. take notes and map your progress. Do NOT rush. By the time you are finished with DVD 3, you will have spent months and months of the best guitar lessons money can buy, and will be a guitarist unashamed to play in front of others.
With DVDs 1 through 3, it is like an entire college course on fingerpicking. Even after finishing the 3rd DVD, you will find yourself going back to DVD1 and having more fun playing "skip to my lou" than you thought imaginable. (Just listen to the introductory music and you'll know what I mean).
You can take the knowledge from this set and move on to acoustic blues, which Homespun offers as well. That set, along with Bag of Blues, and some of the Blues Jamming, are an important part of every guitarist's library.
Homespun is the premier music instruction in the country today. enjoy!
I certainly recommend this product.
