"Johnny Winter - a great and very gifted musician. On these 2 DVDs Johnny plays a variety of blues songs reflecting differing artists such as Muddy Waters to BB King. Al Ek proceeds to break down each song after Johnny plays it, into its' parts for you to learn. Al is a great teacher in that he shows each note with finger and fret position. The only thing that would have helped is to include a tab booklet. My advice to you if you purchase these DVDs is to shorten the learning process by creating your own tab for these songs.
Upon viewing these DVDs, you realize that it is going to take a lot of time and effort to learn and commit to memory any song - there is no way around it. I think there is a place for copying and having a number of songs that you really like in your repetoire. However, having said that,I personally think it is more rewarding to learn and create your own songs. Both approaches will cost you in time and effort. My simplistic advice is to use your time and effort wisely as they are in limited supply.
I saw Johnny Winter in concert years ago and he, along with his brother Edgar are fantastic musicians. If you like the Blues, these DVDs are the way to go."
