5.0 out of 5 stars Techniques from a master technician April 4, 2001
By Kalryn
Format:VHS Tape
I imagine most people visiting this page already know about John Petrucci and his technical expertise when it comes to playing guitar. For the uninitiated he started playing guitar when he was 12 (which would mean he had 16 years experience when this video first came out in 1995), before eventually going on to become guitarist with the highly respected and premier prog metal band Dream Theater. He has also participated in various DT side-projects including Liquid Tension Experiment and Explorers Club. He is renowned for being able to play at a speed which positively defies belief (and usually leaves people wondering how anyone can possibly move their fingers so fast). Aside from his blistering speed however, he also plays with finesse and feel in equal measure, and can handle just about any musical style you care to mention. Incidentally, you don't have to be a fan of any of the aforementioned bands as none of their songs are featured to any great degree. There are, however, some concert clips of John soloing either to demonstrate a previous point or to provide a natural break between one section and the next. He also talks briefly about bands and guitarists that have influenced him.
One thing that beginning guitarists should note is that there is one longish section towards the end which requires some amount of musical theory - good chord knowledge at the very least - and if you don't have any then you will probably be left completely bewildered during that particular section. However, this isn't a criticism of the tape itself, since anyone endeavouring to be an accomplished musician will ultimately have to acquire this knowledge at some point anyway, and it doesn't pretend to be a lesson in musical theory.

5.0 out of 5 stars found results within two days of first viewing! July 24, 2000
By Ben
Format:VHS Tape
John Petrucci is my all time favorite guitar player so once i saw this video I had to own it, even though its high price. This was my first video and I'm sure I won't need another one for a while. I was amazed by the speed of his playing on which I had heard on previous DT albums and now I was able to see him in action, just watching him play was worth the price. But the video included all of his secrets to his spectacular playing, and a book with just about everything he plays notated with notation and tab. In the video he really emphasizes the importance of streching and not injuring yourself when playing. He shows how to increse speeds with a metronome to play faster. He talks about legato techniques, Sweep picking, chordal techniques, learning and building solos or songs in fragments, and also warm-up excersises used in practicing, and much more. It also includes information on his musical experience and influences and other information. This video definatley a VERY HELPFUL video and i think any guitar player would get so much information from it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock Discipline - John Petrucci January 17, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This video is a must for any guitar player whishing to improve their technique. It covers everything from warming up to sweep picking to sub-dividing the beat and also how to increase your speed. This is not a video of "hey look at me show off" like other videos I've seen, and it also covers areas like compositional writing and how to improve standard chord progressions. There are demonstrations of the examples and the video is better than any other book or video that I have ever seen on improving your technique. If you think that this video would just be on shredding then you are very much mistaken. This video shows you how good John Petrucci really is, and he is fantastic. He is, in my mind, joint 1st place with Steve Vai. I recommend everyone to check this video out and also his band Dream Theater. It really is that good.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING - Petrucci trains his competion for sport July 27, 1998
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
An awesome tape - John Petrucci lets go of many of his secrets - the beginner can learn from this, but it is really targeted towards the advanced player - John seemingly taunts the Morse's and Holdswirth's of the world (select crowd) by presenting a few of his secrets and learned rites of practicing - - the tape teaches how to practice - includes numerous exercises, tricks with scales, metronome work. I buy anything with his name on it, but this is a total gem of a tape!! END
