"This kind of thing is one of the really good things about living in this age. I can watch Buddy Guy tell me how he plays the blues any time I want. I even get guitar tabs! I will enjoy this DVD for as long as I play the guitar."
Buddy Guy!!!

"The simple fact that you have Buddy Guy sitting down a talking and teachin' the Blues is worth 4 Stars. There IS tab in the booklet that comes with the DVD. Slo Mo feature gives you the chance to learn new licks along with Buddy. I thought it was great. Great chord section. I recommend it highly if you love the Blues and Buddy Guy"
Licks like the pros

"I have this Hot Licks video on VHS, and I really like it. It's true he isn't playing his licks from his records, but he's teaching the blues, going back to Muddy Waters and Lightning Hopkins all the way to the I guess the 90s, by way of Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughn. It's like blues music appreciation lessons... aren't you supposed to slow down records to learn licks like the pros?

It does repeat itself, maybe Arlen Roth could of fixed the continuity, and it could put you into a trance with it's slow pace, but that's what you want music to do anyways, isn't it?"

"The is a fantastic DVD a must have for all guitarists. It gives you the nuts and bolts to play authentic vintage blues. Buddy lays it in your lap. The slow motion section (which does not alter pitch) is outstanding. How anyone can say anything else is beyond me, do not delay, if you want to play the blues, GET THIS DVD NOW!"
