    Effective, skill building, very impressive.

    After playing acoustic guitar for decades, I wanted to learn electric. My teenage son and I have been working with the Keith Wyatt video for 3 months and have been amazed at the skills and abilities we have built. We have been able to start electric guitar lessons, not as beginners, but as real players according to our instructor. The process on the disk is comprehensive with increasing challenge in three styles:rock,blues,country. No fluff, no wierd accents, no mumbled burned out lingo. Just good teaching, articulated well. The disk has Keith instructing AND other helps like notation and tablature as well as the 'living fretboard' also covering the same material. This helps alot. I wish Keith Wyatt did a sequel to this... thanks
