I wonder how many of these they would sell if it was described as a "philosophical-interview DVD" rather than a "guitar instructional" one? Matt is a damn fine player, but he teaches precious little.Lots of talk, not much to say. More of an interview/performance piece...IF i had known this, I would have never bought it. Robben Ford and Larry Carlton, for example are players Matt clearly is influenced by...the difference is they can actually teach. And Ford's and Carlton's instructional videos are prime examples of how it should be done.They can articulate AND demonstrate "how they do it." Matt cannot, or chooses not to do this. If you want to watch him play, and spend about 4 minutes out of an hour actually showing (poorly I might add) inversions of an A7 chord,then be my guest. Otherwise you would glean more from just stealing his licks off his recordings cuz he aint showing you. BTW No tab/no notation of any kind. They dont even bother to notate ANY of the performances. And for 28 bucks, you should get more. Get the Greg Koch, SRV,Blues or Guitar Gristle DVD's,Albert Collins REH DVD and or Larry Carlton 1 DVD, or BB King Bluesmaster DVD instead. Too bad, cuz Matt is a GREAT player.

While I highly recommend this DVD, the buyer should be aware that it is not a quick lesson on how to copy his guitar licks. Instead, think of this as multiple guitar lessons on how to become a better player. Beginners will not gain as much from it as the intermediate to advanced player. This is not due to technical content. It's more related to having enough playing/practice time under your fingers that you can pick up on what he's saying and demonstrating. If you are hoping to find some shortcut to playing the blues or just want to copy Matt's licks from tab, this DVD is not for you. If you are interested in developing your blues playing to let your own voice come through, then this DVD will give you tips and approaches that will enliven your playing. As Matt discusses and demonstrates, there are simple things you can do with your physical approach to playing (picking, slides, bends, etc.) and note choices that can help your playing come alive.

I just received my DVD and couldn't wait to check it out. I'm a big fan. I had read the reviews on line noting that this wasn't a typical how to video so I was a bit worried about it.

As Matt says in the DVD there are many other instructional videos and books out there. Lord knows I've got many of them and they just sit on the shelf. This DVD provides insight into how to become your own player and find your own voice rather than learning some of Matt's licks. He describes some of his goals when playing and how he puts it all together.

I think it will take a few viewings to really impact my playing but I'm sure it will. I do wish there was more specific how-to segments to help apply some of the concepts and that's the reason for the 4 star vs. 5 star rating.

I'd recommend this DVD for anyone that doesn't want to sound like everyone else. I'd also recommend seeing Matt play live. It's a real treat.
