"I bought this DVD on a gamble that it might contain material I had not run across yet. There were no reviews, so I decided to write one. First, let me say that if I buy any of these music materials and glean at least a few new ideas, I consider the money well spent.
I was interested in modal music so I bought Tom Kolb's "Modes for Guitar," and "Soloing Strategies for Guitar." Both of these books I highly recommend as Tom covers a wide range of material. Some of the material is repeated verbatim from book to book and Tom is rather verbose in his explanations of various musical relationships, and some of the riff examples are so-so. However, he covers a lot of new ideas which I found valuable.
Well on to the DVD - "Melodic Lead Guitar." Tom goes through a variety of concepts - I especially liked his 'railroad tracks' Dorian scale, and the use of triads to spice up lead solos. The only bad thing about this DVD is that the editing is a little rough around the edges. Tom will say something like ' now we are going to try a certain example in another key' and then switch to a whole new concept. This occurs more than once on the DVD. However, I still recommend this DVD highly for the fresh concepts Tom covers."
