(2 out of 5 stars)
"This is more of a demo of Tom Kolb's guitar skills rather than an intructional DVD for beginners. It only demos 8 riffs/solos. Here's the list:
1. No Particular Place to go (Chuck Berry)
2. Crossroads (Cream)
3. Hey Joe (Jimi Hendrix)
4. You Shook me (Led Zeppelin)
5. Iron Man (Black Sabbath)
6. Smoke on the Water (Deep Purple)
7. You Really Got Me (Van Halen)
8. Crossfire (Stevie Ray Vaughan)
This DVD does not show tabs!! I can't believe they show his left hand playing the fretboard and then they waste screen-space by showing his right hand in a PIP box. Whats more inportant, seeing his right hand pick/strum or seeing the tabs?!?!
Its hard to tell exactly where Tom is fretting. Its still a bit of a guess without the tabs. Especially when he's playing fast. Makes trying to learn from this DVD difficult. Tom does a lot of talking to tell you what he's doing, but that doesn't help an inexperienced player.
Overall, I'm being generous with the 2 out of 5 star rating. Would be better with more riffs/solos AND TABS!!!"
