Movie Reviews

A DVD you'll return to again and again
Marten Sanden | Lund, Sweden | 07/19/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this DVD mainly to learn to play Merle Travis' arrangement of "I'll See You In My Dreams". Who better to learn from then Merle's own son, right? At first, Thom Bresh's charming but informal style of teaching was a bit hard to follow. He seemed to skip through things and it was sometimes hard to tell exactly what he was doing. As my own skills picked up, though, I realized Thom's approach was very much in keeping with the Travis style of picking - forceful, swinging and loose. If you're a beginner, like I was, you might want to start with Marcel Dadi's excellent and very precise DVDs (Nashville Picking vols 1 & 2) and then move on to Thom. Either way, you're bound to return to both again and again, and learn a great deal in the process."
