    I've read so much about Tomo Fujita, I wanted to buy his DVD, but can't find it! The Berklee Site doesn't have it, Hal Leonard site doesn't have it, so I'm stumped. It seems everyone has the VHS version, but of course, I don't own a VCR.

    I ordered it once, and the order was cancelled (without telling me!).

    Anyone know where I can get it?

    thanks

    Hey Mark,

    I just ordered this through my local music store. It was back-ordered, but still only took about three weeks.

    I found one at Bestprices.com. It arrived this morning. I gave it a quick once over during lunch and I am very excited about the content on this DVD. It looks very good.

    Nice price too... $17.01 + shipping.

    I believe this dvd is the best "Bang for Buck" thing you can do to improve your playing. Check it out, you will get better!

    Hi,

    I just bought a new copy on ebay. $14 plus shipping! I hope this is a great video, it's about time I spent some money on my playing rather than my gear.

    Funny how my equipment always sounds better when my playing is "on."

    Hi Dane,

    Thank you for coming to my Tone Merchants clinic.
    That was a really fun gig. A lot of serious stuff ..but
    it works for me too. Having more command on your
    guitar, hope you'll enjoy more your guitar playing.

    I was looking around e-bay.

    Hi Woodyworld,

    Thank you so much for writing. That's awful nice thing to
    say! I really appreciate it. My AYGP dvd is my passion of
    teaching. Each section has some simple examples and
    some challenging exercises too. Which exercise did you like?

    My AYGP 2 dvd will be released soon.

    Thank you for your time.

    Hey Tomo,

    My name is Dan Wilson, I'm a guitar player out of Akron, Ohio and I've been hearing a lot about your guitar playing. I was wondering if you are up at Berklee because I will be up there on the 15th for that summer program. Some clips of my playing are posted on Jack Zucker's website at sheetsofsound.net/danwilson. Where can I find some previews of your playing?

    Hi Dan,

    Thank you for writing. Thank you so much.
    Sorry I don't teach summer program. I used
    do. Sorry about that. I will check it out.
    Thanks. Hope you'll have great time at
    summer program. Check out my website for
    sound clips. Now live cds are available too.

    PS, I just checked your sound clip.
    Great playing. I sent you my comment by email.

    Actually I am playing at Acton Jazz Cafe tonight.
    Lenny Starllworth (bass) and Kenwood Dennard(drums)
    I will go to Boston (picking up Kenwood)

    Hmm.

    Been bored with my playing for abit here. Tomo I'm giving you a shot because of the high marks from those on this board! I'm good, but could be so much better.

    I bought new from Amazon so hopefully you still get a cut!

    Hi EP,

    Did you get my AYGP. Hope you liked it.

    My dvd is not just showing you how you supposed to
    play. I would like to share with you better habits.
    Ideas that can develop your own playing better.

    Don't worry about my cut. I am just happy that serious
    people can learn more.

    Tomo
