"I like this DVD and I'm happy that I spent the money on it.
However, the assumtion is that having given you a few examples, you will be able to go off and improvise on your own. This is not something that I do well, so I would have appreciated a much longer DVD with more examples/variations"
As Good As It Gets

"No booklet or PDF file with this DVD but if you've learned to play the chord changes for 12 bars and a turnaround or two and want to take it to the next level, then there isn't a better video that I've found that can open the door and give you the tools to play acoustic blues. Working exclusively in the key of E and A, Keith takes you through basic licks and tricks leaving room for you to work with what he gives you, that is bringing you to the door, providing the keys that will allow you to begin riffing and soloing - to get down and play 12 bar blues. Yes, he does present in detail some simple solos but the beauty of what he's doing is that what you learn in one 12 bar lesson can then be combined with what you learn in the next to create something of your own and so on with the next piece and that my friends is as good as it gets.
It depends on where you are with your playing, but if you are a few steps beyond beginner and looking to play the blues - this is a gift from heaven or maybe from the hellhounds of Hades.
