"There's one thing about LARRY CARLTON worth mentioning. Donald Fagen of Steely Dan has called him the quickest study of any of the great guitar players that have graced the Dan's catalogue. He came into the studio and recorded two takes on 'Kid Charlamagne' that were both used. He also did the main solo on 'Don't Take Me Alive'. That's high praise indeed coming from someone who outta know. On this session Larry comes across as personable, yet intense. Wolf Marshall has tabbed out alot of the session but not everything. He shows you super arpeggios and a bit of his triadic approach to jazz/blues soloing. Larry is an immensely gifted guitarist. I personally believe he hears every nuance of every note he plays before he plays it and has an uncanny ability to compose on the spot. These things can not be taught but you could get very inspired by this gentle man genius guitarist."

"Although this is 20 years old and for more advanced players, this is an important video for any guitarist. Larry's approach to playing and "flirting with disaster" is what makes his solos and parts so interesting to hear. He describes this and gives examples of it with his accompanied playing. There is a booklet with tab/notation of his parts. I highly recommend this video."
Puts his techniques with reach

"For those of us who wondered how he came up with his sound this is an "aha!" experience. This is not just one of those videos that shows flashy playing and then moves on. The explanations make sense and though they are not always simple to follow, they are within reach. It's nice to see that it is explained much more in terms of arpeggios and chords rather than scales since most of us guitar players are much more familiar with chord spelling than we are with mixolydian mode in the key of D or similar jazzspeak. Everything he does is tabbed out in the book that accompanies the DVD and for that someone deserves major props."
