Good stuff

"Steve's a great player and his flawless execution of these fast solos is very inspiring! All of the solos sound great and are very worth learning.

I also like the inclusion of written notes and not guitar tab. (There are a few minor errors in the notation but Steve takes the licks slow enough to catch on to what he's doing even if the written notes are sometimes different from what one is hearing.)

I also like that there are not 100 solos and licks. The content is just enough to feel you've accomplished something.

Great DVD buy if you want to learn how to solo in the country style.

I'd welcome a another DVD by Steve showing even more tricks."

"Steve did an outstanding job of providing a few snapshots of very different, but really interesting styles. This is not for the beginner, as it really uses some advanced techniques at breakneck speed. Other country instructional material may have more variety and quantity, but everything he shows in this DVD is very ear catching and tasty. An added bonus is that these are licks you can use, they are not limited to the solo that he showed them in, but are mostly transposable and transplantable.
I give this an A+ rating and only hope for some follow on DVD."

"Bought on whim. Can't get this out of my player. Not a country fan by trade. But what Steve demonstrates is nothing short of amazing. Super fast country licks and bends. Extensive use of 9s and 13s.One minor complaint is that Steve is such a natural, he'll play a 100 single note lick and then play it slow and move on. He does this a few times. But with persistance you'll catch on and understand what he's doing.I recommend this to intermediate players who have a background in typical blues chords (extensions) and can open their mind to chromaticism.Awesome!"
Kudos to Trovato - SHAME on Alfred Music

"There is a lot of great content in this DVD. Steve is a very gifted player and teacher. However, the production of this DVD and the lack of TAB will make it frustrating to even advanced students who do not read standard notation. If Alfred Music had inserted more chapter markers it would have made it much more user friendly. Steve breaks down the licks very well, but without TAB or a way to quickly return to the top of the lick, it is much slower going than it needs to be. This is an older lesson that was repackaged by Alfred. They should have spent the nominal time and expense to make these lessons accessible to non reading guitarists or clearly marked that it contains no TAB. Tab is the industry standard for stringed instrument instructional material. Alfred took the cheap way out."
