"This is a very solid instructional video from Cherry Lane --Featuring Danny Gill. It has four songs (Mr.Crowley, Crazy Train, Revelation (Mother Earth) and I Don't Know) off the first album Blizzard of Ozz and four songs (Dairy of a Madman, You Can't Kill Rock and Roll, Flying High Again, Little Dolls) off the second album Dairy of a Madman which Randy co-wrote and played. So you have you Five out of the Six songs Randy considers his favorite songs from these two albums, the Sixth being "Over the Mountain" which I felt should have been in there myself (my choice would be to have it over "I Don't Know"). The Five other songs are, if your curious, "Revelation, Mr Crowley, Dairy, Flying High Again, Rock and Roll" which were his favorites.
It does have 2 DVD's and the running time is 4 hrs and 48mins. I was taking a gamble with this order because it has the wrong description for this item from Amazon. Danny goes through each song showing you in moderate musically terms, the rhythms and leads fully for each song. Having said that, if you are a Beginner to Intermediate player this will be good for you if you are disciplined enough to learn these songs all the way through off of this DVD. He does go slow enough to learn each bar and phrase of the song. If you are Intermediate to Excellent player you should have no problem with the musically terms and the fact that there are NO Tabs.
It does NOT show On-Screen Tablature of what Danny is doing but, if you have the Tab books from Cherry Lane of these albums Ozzy Osbourne - Blizzard of Ozz (Play-It-Like-It-Is) and Ozzy Osbourne - Diary of a Madman you can follow through that way too. (NOTE: only 95% of what Danny does and the Tab books correspond exactly, The 5% you can decide which way you want to play it). I like to have both Visual and Written to learn if I can so these books will help alot.
The only thing I didn't care for was Danny's fingering on some chords, he makes it harder than it needs to be ---Expl. on Dairy.
Good Luck and Keep Rocking !!!!
