Intimidating, but good

"This is an excellent DVD, but there are a few minor negatives. Compared to his earlier VHS "lesson," (An Intimate Lesson w/TR) this one was more difficult for me to follow because Tony isn't talking to you, the viewer. He's talking to Happy Traum. This makes it a little more difficult to match with the tablature because Tony will do a variation after Happy asks a question. The older VHS is straight forward - we're going to learn this one now. This new DVD really is like sitting in on two musicians playing around but not noticing you're there. The pieces are more difficult than the older video as well - I find myself very intimidated by how fast and clean he plays these more complex tunes - but that may be because I haven't learned them yet!!! Other than those nitpicks, it's always great to get a closeup view of just what in the world Tony's doing, hear stories, listen to that amazing old Martin and his very impressive newer Santa Cruz. And the ability to slow forward and easily rewind the DVD is magnificent. The selection of tunes is very good, the audio quality is excellent and the camera work is very good. Now if I could just get Tony to come to my house and teach me this stuff . . ."
Great Stuff

"This dvd is a great buy. It is priceless,really. You feel you are in Tony's living room, hanging out. The tab is good too. He talks about his technique, equipment, and feelings behind what he plays. He breaks down several songs, including Little Sadie and Jeruslem Ridge. Well worth the price of a couple of lessons."
Great for Tony Fans.

"Tony is a living legend in the bluegrass world. I wouldn't recommend this DVD for those who actually want to learn Tony's work, he doesn't go deep enough into it for the average guitar player to pick up a whole lot. But just watching him play in a living room type setting and explain certain concepts is well worth the price."
