I tried to order another course from Melissa at JEFFRAN COLLEGE. They took my money, and never sent the course. I put this one on my credit card, and I had protection, so they gave me my money back. I'm finished trying to deal with Melissa. Anyone else have this problem? I am looking for some C6 material for learning how to play.

I could be way off the mark as I've had no actual dealings with Melissa, but the impression I get from reading about members' experiences is that she took Jeffran on as it was clearly the right thing to do (or so it seemed) but has found she doesn't have the time or the expertise or the business sense to make it work.

There are parallels with the tale of Ron Lashley Jr. - not everyone is suited to inherit. But I will be glad if she can find a way to make at least a modest success of it.

It's a shame. She has a product(s) that the steel guitar public wants to purchase, and all she is doing is opening up the doors for boot-leg products.

I’m surprised to hear this as I’ve ordered several courses from her in the past several months and they all arrived quickly. All purchases were made with PayPal though. They notify the seller when money is received. I wonder if that could be the issue.

I went through PAYAPL, but I paid with a credit card

I received part of my order today after a month. Hope the rest follows soon.

Just FYI, check whatever you order really well. A few times I’ve had pages missing. This time there was a completely different song and track on the CD than what I ordered and was PRINTED on the CD. That was a Woodshed Workshop course.

Sometimes I’ve been sent a replacement for the missing parts, sometimes I’ve been completely ignored but got copies of the missing pages from Forum members, thankfully.

I'm having the same issue. I've sent numerous messages, with no reply. I got part of my order and received a previous order again. I sent her photos and offered to send the duplicates back. No response. Does anybody have a contact number for the business? I hate to do the whole Paypal issues thing.

The number I have is, 615-879-4911, but she won't answer and I leave messages. On Sunday, 06-17-2019, she sent me an email and a tracking number that she was shipping my order. She must be taking some adult beverage!
Most people on the forum, I have found to be honest. Several years ago, I sold an MSA 12 string lap to a gentleman, and he was short about $750.00, and would send it the following month. I went ahead and sent the lap and sure enough, he sent me my money. His name is George Redmon, and I trust him 100% and I have never met him in person. Bill Ferguson, George Kimery, Mike Archer, Tony Dingus, Micky Adams, Ricky Thompson, David Nugent AND Damir Besic are others that I trust 100%. I wouldn't do that for everyone, but he had a good reputation here on the forum. You can't always go by the reputation! I bought a SHO-BUD several years ago, and sold my GFI. Before the Sho-Bud was shipped, he sent me an email and said that he had a friend that told him he was selling it for $200.00 under what he should get for it. I had already sold my GFI, so I was kinda "stuck" and I sent him the extra $200.00. I have never done business with him or his friend again, and they are here on the forum all the time. Just be careful!

Thanks for the reply. This is a great product. I hate that nobody is taking this seriously. I have plans in the works to do some instructional videos my self. My mentor toured and played out of Nashville for years. He and I have discussed making some teaching material with videos and tab. It looks like now would be a good time to start.

I've been searching for one of them "mentors" for years, but I can't find one. LOL! I guess that's why some people take advantage of me. Well, if they can live with it, I can live without it.

Yes sir, we have been discussing this for a little while. Customer service will be our number one priority. If we decide to do it. I seriously hate what is going on with Mr. Newman's material. My grandfather knew him years, had a lot of respect for him and his teaching. When I decided to get back into playing, I was looking forward to really digging into this material. The first couple orders went smooth, took about 2.5 weeks to ship. I got a message from them saying they were having some family heath issues. No big deal, I totally understand about that. Then this last order has been a nightmare, I get emails offering product discounts, but no response on stuff I purchased. I want to send back the duplicate stuff, but couldn't get a response on that, just verifying the address, we me paying the shipping. I don't want to go through paypal to get my money back, I'm sure they don't need that. Be nice to get my product though.
