"This entire Homespun series is totally bogus, in my opinion. I have tried two, and both were poorly produced. They give the impression that they just set up a camera, then let the artist ramble on with little forethought or scripting.
In this case, I have to assume that Peacock is a good musician, but he is a marginal teacher and speaker at best.. little eye contact, lots of mumbling, and even several of his playing examples are not what I would expect from a supposedly top-notch player.
My advice... avoid Homespun videos like the plague, and invest your money in a good instructional book instead!"
