In this series of lessons, lead guitar player Buster B. Jones presents and teaches guitar solos that he plays in the woodshed as well as on stage. Each instrumental has evolved from its basic form to a complex arrangement featuring melodic variations, chromatic rolls, rhythmic licks and lyrical runs. These instrumentals will challenge the talents of any intermediate to advanced student.
Buster B. Jones is an acoustic player, a fingerpicker, a country flavored soloist - and he s one of the finest players we ve heard in years... His technique is only a means to an end. His true gifts are his melodic sense, innate musicianship, unfailing human, and brilliant improvisational powers. He can drive a tune with fluid rhythmic force or stroke it with sensuous, loving touch... He s a monster player with chops galore, great ideas and an encyclopedic reservoir of guitaristic influences. --Guitar Player MagazineSee all Editorial Reviews

Short of one, I own all his DVDs. Went on a bit of a panic-buy shortly after he passed away with the fear that they might go out of print. So far they haven't (and with on-demand production being what it is today, they may never).
This particular breed of Travis/Atkins/Reed fingerstyle is very distinct. Once you learn the 'formula' of how they arrive at that particular sound, it opens up a whole lotta noise to be made. Busters DVDs help you learn the secrets of how its done.
While these are pretty accessible to anyone at any skill level, beginners, keep your expectations grounded. Buster and guys like him did/do what they did/do because of decades practice of the sort of stuff taught in this DVD. With that said, his DVDs are the best foundation you're ever going to find to eventually have your 'lightbulb moment' with fingerstyle.
Intermediate and even advanced fingerstyle players, there's stuff to be gleaned from most of BBJs DVDs as well.
