Great DVD for bassist, guitarists, and anyone in the band

"This is one of the better HotLicks videos (I own over 20). Tommy speaks into the camera, engages the 'audience', and really makes it seem like a private lesson.
The best part about this lesson is getting Tommy's perspective/philosophy on playing bass and being part of a band. This is a guy who could easily fill 45 minutes with bass-lines and say 'This is stuff I did with Stevie Ray' and wrap it up. Instead he talks about his influences, his gear, and what being a great bass player means to him.
If you want to play guitar, bass, or drums, and aspire to be part of a 'band' (and not just an individual musician), then this DVD has something to offer.
