This DVD is definitely intermediate level stuff. He starts with a quick review of the 5 basic scale patterns, pentatonic, blues, and diatonic, plus the related chords. If you've read Fretboard Logic this will be familiar. Then a quick review of which scales go with which chords. Nice. Then arpeggios and how to use them. Also nice. Then he puts theory in action by teaching some very nice country and blues licks, then some Brazilian and a pop tune with altered chords. Just a very pleasant DVD, full of good info and nice tunes. Mr Findlay has a very breezy teaching style. The licks work on electric guitar as well. Lots of info in a short time. One of the best guitar teaching DVDs I've seen. And the price is right.
