Movie Reviews

Not for beginners, but good to see...
Stephen E Fister | Palo Alto, CA USA | 06/27/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD has some good technique, but it is definitely NOT for beginners. There is very little "instruction" in the video; some insight to the chords and scales played. The video is more of a "one man sitting in a chair concert" than anything else. Some of the "songs" played are WAY too long. However, if you want to see a guy that can REALLY play and do it effortlessly...Robben Ford is it. This video picks up on his previous video, so I would reccomend taking a look at that before buying this if you are a beginner."
Not Much Instructional Content
Dan J. Duszynski | Clayton, NC United States | 03/16/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This video is not much more than a Robben Ford jam session. He mentions some of the scales he is going to play but that is where the instruction pretty much ends. Robben is a great player and entertaining to watch, but if you want to learn to play like him, you will be disappointed."
Shows Keys to RF's Style.
George R. Wilmot | Atlanta, GA USA | 02/12/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"As stated in the other reviews, this "shows" a bit more than it "instructs". But as an intermediate to advanced guitarist, I don't find that a bad thing. By watching it over and over, I've picked up a ton. His section of Miles Groove is insightful, unique, and really taught well IMO.

BTW, in addition to soloing ideas you can pick up a lot of useful rhythm chops from this video."
