I think Shawn Lane's video is incredibe (VHS) though it depends on what style of music you're interested in. If you're into blues, you'd probably not dig it.Originally posted by drift_boat
How many of you folks go to dvd's for help in getting better? Which ones do you think helped you alot? I just got my feet wet with Greg Koch's take on SRV's style. Very entertaining and helpful dvd.
I wish the REH stuff of his would be available on DVD. I just bought a video camera that is able to convert analog to digital (external signals) on the fly so if it works reliably I may pick up the REH tape again and convert to DVD...Originally posted by drift_boat
Thanks jzucker, I'll look for that Albert Lee one on dvd!
Aw man! I'm glad I finally made you laugh! You're posts have been killin' me since I've been a lurker, and I've tried to work the wordplay angle before, but I didn't even see that one coming! Kinda sad not to be funny until trying to be serious...dkaplowitz said:LMAO! It's about time you answered the thread!
I didn't even see the original datedkaplowitz said:Thanks man. I just couldn't resist laughing when I saw the thread that was started over 2 years ago finally got answered by the person who was being asked for recommendations in the title.
That's hysterical....dkaplowitz said:

What in particular does Mclaughin cover on his DVD?gennation said:I 100% recommend John Mclaughlin's DVD's. They're costly but you be using that info for music the rest of your life. It's the best I've seen and I've seen a lot.
I'm trying not to skip ahead without doing the work, so I only know the first DVD. It starts out with him going over diatonic modes, learning them inside and out with every interval combination, and then he gives you rhythm-varied patters to use for them. It's extremely thorough, and those rhythmic variations are really tough to learn like they're 2nd nature. He also gives example solos (an "easy" one and a hard one) to analyze. It's not a course that tells you what to do, it's more like one that gives you the raw tools you need to make your own choices. It also assumes when he shows you one pattern for aeolian in asc & desc 6ths that you'll take the time to learn how to play _all_ the scales in asc & desc 6ths, that you'll figure out the fingering that works for you, etc. He doesn't waste time showing you each pattern for every mode in every key.Lucidology said:What in particular does Mclaughin cover on his DVD?
In other words, what makes it better and/or different
then many of the other instructional DVD's out there?
