2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly made video... January 2, 2013
By Gary M.
I bought this without any foreknowledge of just what the content of the lessons were. I personally felt as a beginner
that the video was poorly made and didn't really spend the right amount of time helping you learn what you should be learning. I found better videos on youtube to be honest. I didn't buy mine from amazon, but just didn't want anyone else wasting their money on this.
