Instructional

Paul Gilbert: Intense Rock I & II

Intense Rock I was the first instructional video I’ve ever seen. It was mind blowing. I spend millions of hours on that VHS! This is the modern version combining I & II.

Brent Mason: Nashville Chops & Western Swing

I remember when this video came out I was still in Italy and desperately trying to understand how to play this stuff. No one to ask. When this VHS (at that time) arrived I screamed and watched it 3 times in a row. :) Oh yeah.. hybrid picking!

Brent Mason: Recording Guitar DVD

Well… this is a great DVD if you’re interested in how to layer guitar parts in the studio. I’ve also heard that the DVD comes with the transcriptions made a very handsome Italian fellow.. :)

Frank Gambale: Monster Licks & Speed Picking

If you wanna study economy picking and sweep picking this is all you need. Really nicely made and very impressive to see. A must have.

John Petrucci: Rock Discipline DVD

It’s quite similiar to the book. It’s very interesting to see how John Petrucci does things. There’s a lot to learn from him. Great video, probably the best for this topic.

Joe Diorio: Creative Jazz Guitar

This is a very interesting video. Joe is such a great teacher. I found particularly interesting when he talks about the different parts of the brain that we used when we play.

Danny Gatton: Telemaster!

Danny wasn’t really famous as a teacher so his approach is a bit… let’s say.. ‘Rock’n'Roll’! But boy this guy can play. Some people like him some people don’t but he was an absolute genius in his field.

George Benson: Live At Montreux

This is a great DVD to see George Benson melting humans with his super powers. Just make sure you wear sunglasses before you press ‘play’.

This is probably Nashville’s most famous Western Swing band. This is a chance to see them live in case you’re not in Nashville on Mondays…

Stevie Ray Vaughan: Live At El Mocambo

Basically… SRV instrucional video. This was made in 1983 when SRV was absolutely on fire. Probably my favorite blues concert ever.

Jeff Beck: Live At Ronnie Scott’s

I always respected Jeff Beck but I was never a big fan… until I saw this. Just listen to ‘Where Were You’ from this Live and you’ll understand what I mean. This is something else.
