Very Good Rockabilly DVD

"I have looked at a lot of rockabilly instructional DVDs, and this is one of the better ones. Trovato takes you through some basic rockabilly rhythms (boogie woogie and finger picking-type stuff), and he walks you step by step through three solos: one Carl Perkins flavored solo, and two Brian Setzer flavored solos. The solos are long, but he breaks down the licks so you can shorten them, pull isolated ideas out, etc. The solos have some meat to them, so there are some good ideas to take away. Oh, jam tracks are included that cover the solos.
This is a good follow on to the Jim Weider rockabilly series (my number one recommendation).
My only complaint - no tabs with the DVD, either printed or in pdf format."
Good instruction, no printed music

"Previous instructional DVDs I've purchased came with a TAB version of the music (or at least the ability to d/l if from a website) so I could clearly see what the instructor was doing and then practice without the DVD playing. This DVD did not come with anything. It mentions 'web support', but this just an ad for the site, for which you have to pay to d/l jam tracks. So the Jam tracks mentioned are only found on the DVD, not in any form you can play on an iPod, so you have to play the DVD to listen to the tracks. I wasn't even able to find mention of the DVD on the site, forget about being able to d/l the TAB.
The instruction seems sound so far, but without anything to accompany it, it makes it much more difficult to follow."
