    Probably THE best guitar method

    I've been noodling around with the guitar longer than I care to admit to (you know the old saying: It's an easy instrument to play...badly!) and I love these method DVD's and books. IMHO this DVD, together with the Hal Leonard Guitar Method Complete Edition (with the CD's) is the best system out there!
