Lack of teaching overall

I got nothing at all from this DVD. To mee Troy Dexter is just showing off in about 45 mins , thats it. There is no usefull breakdown of licks he plays etc. So I guess this isn't really for the beginner into rockabilly. I later bought the DVD with Steve Trovato and he's a much better teacher, and is really breaking down the styles and lick so you understand them. I would definetely recomend that on instead and save $15 for this one."
Rockabilly Delight (not for beginners)

"This DVD showed several styles of rockahilly playing. The teacher slowed it down and included a section on jazz or horn chording. A booklet is included to help. I recommend buying a comprehensive book on chord forms to supplement this booklet. Practice the chords until you know them cold. I keep replaying the DVD and discover new things to practice. Very well done instruction by Troy Dexter."

"This is absolute garbage, Troy begins by talking about getting the Rockabilly sound and although he uses the right equipment still manages to miss by a mile.
The title claims to recreate the techniques of some great Rockabilly players,one of which being the Reverend Horton Heat which i was very interested in. But again Troy fails miserably (oh how i wish the Reverend would publish a book or DVD).
For anybody wanting to buy a good quality DVD of this style, my recommendations would be after grabbing almost everything i can find on the subject of Rockabilly guitar. Titles by Paul Pigat and Jim Weider, next take a look at Arlen Roth. I know Brian Setzer would seem an obvious place to start, but his technique is rather unusual and hard to pick up."

"This instructional lacks coaching and floats aimlessly to its end.Rockabilly has a lot of travis picking involved and the instructor ignores this important part only to offer up one of the lamest scotty moore lessons i have ever seen.I may have been spoiled by the Paul Pigat dvd's but this one was clearly a waste of money for me."
