    This is an outstanding instructional DVD. If you ever wanted to play Heart songs on your acoustic guitar, get this DVD. I count myself as incredibly fortunate to get a guitar lesson from Nancy Wilson right in my own living room any time I wish. She teaches quite well, has a fun personality and is one of the best guitar players I’ve ever heard. Go ahead and buy this with confidence.

    Disappointed with Nancy Wilson “Instruction” Video, May 1, 2009

    I was very disappointed with this DVD. I was expecting to really learn something. Instead this video consists of Nancy talking conversationally while playing through the songs with small explanation. I learned no more about how to play Heart songs than if I’d just watched her play on an MTV music video. She by no means leads you through a song and really teaches it.

    The tab booklet is very thin and provides small 4 or 8 measure bits and some chord diagrams from certain songs but not enough to really play something worthwhile. Essentially, the booklet is a waste of time.

    I was interested in culture the right way to play the “Crazy On You Intro” (which I’ve played for years but wondered if I really was doing it her way) and “Silver Wheels” (which I`d still like to learn, but certainly not from this video). When she does address “Crazy on You” and “Silver Wheels” both times she says “People are always asking me about how this goes” with a sideways glance as if to say “Wouldn’t you like to know too; but I’m not telling”.

    The quality of the video is poor. It is very washed-out looking and sweet much shades of brown (I’m surprised the Hal Leonard Company would publish a video with such a substandard picture quality). The photo of Nancy on the video cover is indicative of the video quality; like a over-exposed Polaroid picture.

    Nancy herself is pleasant and talented. I really reckon this video could have been worthwhile if more time were spent on the booklet and the video, taking the time to clarify what she is doing (which fret, which string) play sections through slowly so you are able to reproduce what she is playing (that’s what a lesson/instruction is).

    I judge very small preparation went into this video. I appears as though the material is un-rehearsed and just coming off the top of her head.

    I feel cheated and would really like my money back. This video is for those who may delight in watching Nancy talk, play through songs and sing, but you won’t learn much.

    But…. I Like EVERYTHING Nancy does!, November 23, 2009

    This review is from: Nancy Wilson – Instructional Acoustic Guitar DVD (DVD)

    I am a huge Nancy Wilson fan so just the fact that Nancy did the video required me to hold it. It was fantastic having the focus on Nancy while she chats about her music and plays guitar. It felt very “Up close and personal”. I loved every minute of it. But; tiresome to follow her “instruction” made me realize I am incapable of re-making anything Nancy does on her guitar. She is just too far out of my league. I thought I was a sweet decent acoustic guitar player until I watched this video. Not even her verbal explanations and visual demonstrations enabled me to play these songs with any confidence. Because of my faith that Ms. Wilson is perfect….. the fault must lie with me.
