Learn from the best

"Don't mess with the rest!
RR shows and tells you what to do, and within 30 minutes or so you too can play slide guitar! Okay, not like Roy but satisfying enough that you keep plugging through the harder stuff. And Roy helps you with that too. The format is very helpful. The camera and Roy let you see what is happening with both hands. And of course DVDs are great because you can keep slowing things down and going back. I recommend this to any guitar player who ever said, I sure would like to try slide guitar."
Awesome DVD

"I learned and am learning so much from this DVD, it's got live footage of him and his band and then he breaks it down for ya', I am an intermediate slide player and an advanced fingerstyle blues player, I recommend this to everyone, it's so basic, yet so advanced, it'll totally open up the world of slide for you and explain sooooo much!"

"Great DVD for someone needing more challenge playing
slide guitar. Roy Rogers is "The Master of Slide"
This DVD will give even talented players some thing to work on.
Would highly recommend."
Its OK, but not great. Better for licks than learning slide

"Roy can certainly play, he is 8 times grammy nominated. However, this particular DVD is from 1992, and that looks more like a video tape than a DVD, in terms of picture quality. I'm going to see him soon in Sacramento and that will be fun, I'm sure. However...

The instructional design of this DVD isn't great - its more like Roy sat down to be taped and just talked through a few things then played some song parts and licks. Mostly, this is a collection of licks to songs, in Roy's style. The "conceptual" material is quite abbreviated. It basically includes brief reference to types of slides, open E tuning, muting with palm edge, and I think that was about it. Too often, the comments were like...I use either a glass slide or a metal slide but you can use whatever you want. Also more than one instance of...oh yes and I wanted to mention if there were no script and no plan for this - which I find too easy to believe.

If you are looking for slide instruction that will help you understand what you need in a guitar for slide, different types of slides, different open tunings and which ones to start with, and learning the basics of slide, I would recommend instead looking at Mel Bay's "Getting into Slide Guitar", which is a book with a CD. It will serve you much better than this DVD.

But if you just want to watch some slide and hear a little perspective, this is OK. At the $26 price point, I think this is priced about double what it should be. It seems like it was put together as a small independent project by a company with no instructional design resources, just a camera and Roy. It shows."
