Bread & Butter Country Licks - Worth the money
bc | Connecticut | 02/26/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've been playing for many years and consider myself a solid intermediate or even advanced player, but none of these licks are overly difficult. These are a great place to enhance your ability with a lot of the basics. As a comparison, I've also have Brent Mason's dvd, but you need additional fingers to play his stuff! These 50 licks are more for the average player looking to improve, not the already hot guitarist looking for some really hot licks.

Well worth the $15 or less. Make sure you get the "booklet" if you buy used, the tab is only printed not in the video."
A secret weapon of mine

"This is an extremely powerful lesson. If only to see how tasty major blues can be, this is worth every penny. But, honestly, the licks are so good and there are so many of them that it goes past the major blues - goes into pedal-steel type overbending, minor blues, gospel feel... this is a phrasebook that can be used immediately.

It's not easy, though, so I would rate it as intermediate. There's a lot of precise bending involved, as well as fret hand pinkie work and some faster alternate picking. These licks have to be performed smoothly to work. But holy moly, they sure are sweet. If you're a rocker, think of the opening of Led Zeppelin's "Hot Dog", then clean it up (get rid of the flubs) and multiply by 50. Whee!"
Excellent catalog of country guitar licks

"I am a long time blues and rock player that wants to learn country. I saw this DVD in my local music store for $15 and never having heard of Troy, thought I'd take a chance. Of all the books and videos that I have bought over the years, this is among the very best. The licks are great, the audio, video, and camera work is excellent, and the presentation by the Troy is just great. The level of difficulty is definitely in the low to mid intermediate range but the licks are absolutely top notch. Whether you are a gifted picker or a newbie, there is a lot of great material here. Hats off the Troy Dexter for an excellent instructional video. Highly recommended.
