If you want to learn to flat pick- this is a must

"This DVD is the best thing I ever got a hold of. It offers Steve Koffman who is an excellent guitarist and of course the greatest of them all, Doc Watson! The picken will speak for itself. I want to talk about the quality of the DVD. It is great! The lighting, camera position on the guitars is much better then the other DVD. I am still saying the other DVD of Doc is well worth the money."
Don't buy it if you want complete tab

"If you are a fan of Mr. Kaufman and Mr. Watson it is worth buying. I will enjoy watching the playing. That being said, if you are expecting the songs listed to be completely tabbed, you won't get it. Some of the songs just have the breaks tabbed. I bought it as a beginner who wanted to learn "Little Sadie". Granted it's advertised Level 3 (intermediate), but it's also advertised to include music and Tab. Homespun does great videos. To be honest I expected a little more."
Worth the money, but be prepared to put effort into picking

"As mentioned in other reviews, the overall quality of this DVD is very good. I was hoping for more footage of just Doc's lead without any accompaniment so you can sort out exactly what is going on. The slow examples that are played are a little faster than I would prefer, but they are helpful none the less. The tab was a little disappointing, for the money I expected a full tab in a book. The partial tab booklet that comes with the DVD is helpful, but be prepared to do it the old fashion way... lifting licks by playing parts of the DVD over and over again. It is extremely helpful to see Doc's left hand so you can know what position he is picking out of when compared to figuring out runs from a CD. It's worth buying if you're serious about learning Doc Watson's style."
