Garbage... A Waste of Money

"First I'd like to say I'm a Professional Guitarist 24/7 and have been Playing 35+ years and I have a Music DVD & Book Library that could Rival Amazons. This video is "Garbage". I'd even go as far to say this should be the "Poster DVD" for "Don't Let This Happen To Your Playing". It's basically Scott Henderson Droning a note on a "Synth Guitar" which sounds terrible, and then playing every scale and arpeggio over it, just drifting from mode, to mode, to mode, to mode ...etc. In the 2 hours of watching this video, there's not even "One" memorable riff.
This is purely "Cerebral" Scales ( I won't even call it music ). This DVD will teach you how to be great "Musicologist", but "Not" how to be a great "Musician". If you want to learn this type of stuff check out "Jimmy Bruno's No Nonsense Jazz Guitar" DVD. Jimmy Bruno gives you " Six Scales" that cover all the modes and uses them in an extremely musical way. 'Nuff said!"
A life time of lessons

"This is a compilation of his two vhs tapes. The Jazz Fusion Improvisation section covers all the scales, arpeggios, triads, outside playing, etc, you could ask for.
Melodic Phrasing is a real gem. Scott does an amazing job at teaching phrasing. This DVD is about improvisation and making musical statements not just learning the top 50 guitar licks. In my ears Scott is the best improvising guitarist on the scene today.
