Product Description

Charles Grodin has created a frank, no-nonsense, no-question-about-it, one-hour video that reveals his personal experience of working his way through the world of acting schools, agent representation, auditions, and the rest of the real-life world that makes up what's called show business. Included is what to really expect from others who offer you acting lessons, writerly advice, and professional representation; and more important, what it all means for a person who wants to get into this line of work. One thing is for sure: Show business isn't for the faint of heart. If you want to be successful, you not only have to really want it, you have to work endless hours, work extremely hard, and love it.

You'll never find any of the information that Grodin has to offer in this program in any other similarly titled work. In many ways, this is an anti-acting method and anti-entertainment business career advice tutorial, all brought to you in Grodin's typical wry, straightforward humorous style.

These bonus workshop DVDs already appear in the "Expanded" version of Gibson's Learn & Master Guitar. Check to see that you don't already have them (or haven't already ordered them in a different product) before making your purchase.

This is billed as being an addition to the basic course and does have a few new songs and such, but if you have actually completed the basic course, there is not a lot new here. A big disappointment is that the course does not come with a booklet, as the original course does. Instead you get a web address for the booklet suggesting you take it to a local printer to have it printed and bound, at an additional $15.00 or so.

One of the best learn guitar products out there anywhere. No promises of instant guitar mastering, but takes logical and fun steps with encouragement and practice advice. Nicely packaged and so worth every penny.

When bought with the course it is very good and very well laid out. Steve obviously has a lot of experience and understands were people find difficulty.
