"I discovered Keb' Mo' just a few weeks ago - I really enjoy his music, especially his solo acoustic performances, so I figured I'd give this DVD a try. I'm so glad that I did! On this video, Keb' Mo' teaches you seven of his songs, in a very relaxed, non-intimidating manner. He comes accross as a very happy, laid-back kind of guy, and assures you that with practice, these songs aren't very difficult to learn. He performs each song for you, then breaks each one down into lesson "sections", that will have you playing (and probably singing, you can't help it) them in no time. He also includes some fingerpicking excersises to help develop your picking hand dexterity. I'd say that this video is for "intermediate" players, as fingerpicking style can be difficult for beginners, but some of these songs are suprisingly simple to play. I've owned the video for 2 weeks now, and am just getting through the 3rd song, so it has kept me challenged and busy, which I like. I've also learned several new chords as a result. The video also comes with a booklet of tablature for each song, so that you can practice without the video if you like. I highly recommend this DVD to anyone who enjoys solo acoustic fingerstyle blues guitar - you won't be dissapointed! Well worth the money!"
