    Just curious, does anybody own this video and booklet? I have been tryin to find it, but it seems to be out of print. If anybody has it, I would be willing to buy it used. Kind of weird it is out of print, i have heard great things about this video.

    Clint is an amazing player, living in the DFW area now. It has never been reissued to dvd, but I do see it on ebay a few times per year. There was one on there recently with the booklet.

    Clint is incredible .... you can't go wrong with it if you can find it ..
    He talks a little imposition, using country songs for examples ...
    Great info for functional application of cool licks over everyday progressions..

    And then he shows you tons, I mean tons of licks ...

    Plus he performs a bunch of standards with a great band ....

    I luv it for the imposition suggestions and the performances ...

    The licks he plays over static harmonies are extremely cool ...
    Keep saying I'm going to sit down to learn 'em one of these days...

    Glad I found it in a used video section of a book store in Santa Cruz ..

    Man......what is it with these little sausage fingered dudes who can just flat out FLY on the fingerboard??.........Gatton, Bruno, etc, etc.

    Other than Holdworthian stretches.......it's all about economy of motion, not physical attributes.

    I have it on video too, bought it years ago, AMAZING player, my copy didnt come with the booklet either, the shop lost it, been on the hunt for it ever since, with no luck. Ive never found anyone willing to copy the booklet, ive been slaving away learning off the video anyway, good for the ear training!

    It seems that this is a high in demand video. I wish REH would just rerelease the damn thing on DVD.

    Clint gets one of the best Jazz tones I've ever heard
    using a Custom Les Paul through a Nashville Solid State Peavey amp ..
    The amp with a '15 speaker ... Usually played by Pedal Steel players ..

    i messaged him and asked, and he said he'd do it. so hopefully he does.
