Not the best, but it's something

"Now I'm a guitarist, and I have not seen his other films on "How to Play in the Style of" some other artist, but be warned. This video gives you 50 riffs of pink floyds material, mostly from Dark Side and up. All the riffs are only a few measures in length, some a little longer, and some are solos but only small portions of solos, not the whole thing. If you don't have any guitar books on Pink Floyd and want to just know a few of the big riffs, like Money, buy it, it's worth a buy. Also, if you go to the site from which the dvd was made, you can actually print out the guitar tablature to read off of when you play along with them instead of straining your eyes to read the tab on your dvd screen, which is very hard sometimes.
The problem is, his riffs and tabs are not always correct, considering I do have the Official Hal Leonard Pink Floyd Tab Books, and from playing guitar a few years, know that some of his stuff is close, but not exact to the real way of playing it (such as guitar bends that he does not include that David Gilmour uses, the guitarist of Pink Floyd). So like I said, it's something, but not even close to perfect in any way shape or form.
One last note is do not expect to see Pink Floyd at all in this film, this is specifically Curt Mitchell teaching you riffs, that's it!"
It makes a good frisbee

"This one of the worst guitar style DVD's Have have ever bought.
If you want to watch a thresher hack-up some floyd, then this is for you.
If you want a really good DVD by the series from Lick Library, Jamie Humphries will get you through those tough string bends."
