"The first two reviewers remind me of a joke.
Computer user: Hello is that the Helpdesk?
Helpdesk: Yes. What can I do for you?
Computer user: My computer has shut down and will not reboot.
Helpdesk: It is plugged in and turned on?
Computer user: I don't know because the lights are out because there is a power cut and I can't see.
Helpdesk: Put everything back in the boxes and take the computer back to the shop where you purchased it and tell them you want a refund because you are TOO STUPID TO OWN A COMPUTER!
I don't think the first two reviewers should be allowed to rate the product because their low rating obviously reflects the fact that they blame the product for their own stupidity.
The cover is very clear as to the contents. A term like "Signature licks" is the first giveaway. Also, the text (and the photo of the author) on the cover never, ever leads anyone to believe this product is anything but a lesson DVD.
I have been working with this DVD for some time now. Excellent. Buy it if you are a guitar player and an ABB fan.
One of the best out there

"I have quite a large collection of Instructional DVD's for guitar and this is one of the better ones. The songs are done first at speed, then they are showed to you in a slowed down version and each song is carefully taught in a way that anyone can benefit from. My only complaints are:
Some of the solo's are cut short (Ramblin' Man doesn't include the ending or the end solos) but they couldn't fit it all on one DVD if they didn't cut it down, and
they didn't do my favorite song; Blue Sky.
Other than that, this is a great guitar tutorial for anyone interested in learning the Allman brothers styles. Oh, and to the folks that bought this thinking it was concert footage, I can't believe you would admit that mistake for the record. I would be way too embarrassed to admit such a mistake..."
