To the point!

"This is a straight forward dvd that gets right to the point. It is shown real time and slow motion with clear and concise finger movement. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn some awesome jazz licks in a relatively short amount of time."
Good licks, clearly demonstrated

"This video features 50 jazz licks clearly demonstrated. The great thing about this DVD is that these are great sounding jazz licks without being over the top technique wise. Many jazz books and videos show licks that are just way to hard for the beginning to intermediate jazz player. Each lick is played slow and fast and the tab book matches the DVD extremely well. In response to the previous reviews about the format of DVD and it going back to the menu after each lick, I found after a while I like this format because once I got the lick under my fingers I could practice the lick and not have the DVD go far ahead and have to find my way back to where I was. Great DVD for learning a bunch of jazz licks."
Not as expected

"This dvd is not a bad dvd. There are some issues with each lick playing through & then having to go back to the main menu to repeat it or go to the next lick. The player on the dvd is very good, and I do like the way the earlier licks are shown slow & fast. What I don't like about the dvd is probably not a fault of the product, but a misperception on my part. I am a classic rock guitarist who has never played jazz before; I was expecting some entry level instruction along with the licks, which just is not there."
