From this DVD the following truths become self evident

1. Albert Lee is an amazingly brilliant guitar player
2. Albert Lee is a not a teacher

This DVD is a forum for Albert to show some really incendiary guitar playing. However, his analysis and explanation of the guitar playing is weak and this DVD is reliant on the interviewer explaining what Albert is playing. If you want instructional material I would prefer a good book rather than a DVD (Something like Hot Country by Lee Hodgson - which has a foreword by Albert Lee, or Country Solos for guitar by Steve Trovato). However with neither of these items do you get Albert Lee rocking out with a 4 piece band which, to me, was the real highlight of this DVD.

Technically and cerebrally challenging, that is why he stands out from many others. One must have a guitar with a low action, with a set of 9s or even lower, with a set of 8s, with the usual standard 'Telecaster' or a very close generic guitar, fitted with Humbuckers. While the rest of the world was messing around [Beatles excluded] with silly, stupid, pointless pop rubbish, Albert was figuring this stuff out, way back in the early 60s. Not easy, and I have been playing Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed stuff since 67 till now. Those two pickers established a 'Precedent Set' for all that was to come in their wake in the field of Country, which is what Jerry Reed, Chet Atkins, Albert Lee, Vince Gill and many others are all about. Potentially, a long term project, or an hour a day, there really is no rush, yet extremely rewarding once you 'Crack' Alberts system and technique, then off you go on your own, with the incorporated backing tracks.Written with easy guitar TAB, and backing tracks for you to aspire to. Worth every penny !

Excellent DVD So nice to hear Albert Lee play so many good things and then have a bit of break down re his technique etc between numbers! Not sure if you could learn to play like Albert from watching this unless you are pretty accomplished to start with as it is a bit technical but a great DVD just to enjoy even if it didn't have the in depth technique descriptions! What a truly great guitarist Mr Lee is and so modest about his huge talents!
