There is almost everything here for the wanna-be worship leader aiming to emulate the Alaskan-born and now much-travelled singer, songwriter and guitarist Lincoln Brewster on his live 'All To You' recording. This pack in the Worship Tools series includes clear lead line, chord chart and lyric sheet for eight of the tracks from the album, together with a studio-mixed recording of these songs (with split trax versions of each) and an instructional DVD that teaches the novice guitarist pretty much everything (chord shapes, strum patterns and a whole lot more) needed to play them. The vast majority of the songs themselves are either written by Brewster or by him in collaboration with others and are well constructed, very hooky, often anthemic and not over-taxing in their depth; the highlight is probably "Majestic", which quite rightly has made considerable impact internationally. From the view point of the novice guitarist they are comparatively straightforward and a reasonable sound is an achievable aim, although there is no mention of the hours of practice required to achieve Brewster's level of competence!
