Not enough instruction and too much theatrics

"This instructional video actually teaches guitar through story. The story involves a teenager who dreams of being a great guitarist but can't even tune his guitar. Out of no where, a guy named H.E.L.P. appears in his bedroom and attempts to motivate and teach the boy to play guitar. Instruction covers how to hold a guitar and pick, play a few notes, a few chords, and rests. The kid learns to play a simple rendition of "Ode to Joy". That's about it for the story. The supplemental material is actually decent, the highlight of which is covering how to read basic sheet music.
What I look for in this type of DVD is instruction where I can hear the notes and see how they are played. This DVD instead shows you a few chords and notes and gives the rest of the lessons in text form. If that's all you want, you are better off buying a book."
