"Pete Huttlinger is not only a fingerstyle award winning guitarist, he is also a studio musician, performer (his CDs are wonderful) and toured with John Denver. This DVD simply is his practice motif --something that unlocks doors to better playing. I cannot see how a guitarist could not improve if he takes Pete's methods to heart. He not only presents scales, but very specific and strict manners to play them in order to improve finger strength. He is methodical, dedicated, and simply assumes that you have purchased this DVD to improve. He is not entertaining, though his personality is engaging, but very serious. This DVD is for the dedicated guitarist who wishes to improve without short cuts so that later, there will be no "holes" in his playing. I love this DVD and use it about once per week, as if it were a private lesson. I practice all week what Pete has taught, and then go back to the DVD 7 days later. It is my routine (I also use his DVDs learning the songs of John Denver) where I use several Homespun DVDs as my "teachers" with Pete's being like an athlete training. When I learned ice hockey, I enjoyed playing more than anything else. But the drills I did, over and over, were, eventually, put to use in games where I noticed dramatic improvement in a few short years. Pete's DVD is athletic training for the hands. You will be a better guitarist, in just a few months, if you dedicate yourself to practicing with a purpose....this is not about just picking up a guitar and practicing without a plan.
Get everything Homespun has to offer from Huttlinger, and pick up his CDs to increase not only your appreciation of fingerstyle guitar, but to relax and enjoy his music."

"Pete's "Practice" DVD gives many tips and practice concepts that have helped my playing greatly improve. He teaches scales and drills designed to help the student become more proficient with basics. The instruction is easy to follow and will help beginners and advanced students alike. Pete's style of teaching is relaxed and easy-going. It made me feel like Pete was in my living room with me giving me private lessons. I would highly recommend this DVD for all guitar players who want to improve their basic skills."

"Well, I'm an absolut beginer, and this video helped me to improve my practice. I didn't know what to do and how long. It was confused for me how to combine fingering, chord progressions, practicing scales, and so, but Pete solved for me."
