It's not being stolen. There was no transcriptions of the exercises included with the DVD so after everyone complained they put up pdf's on John McLaughlin's website. Then someone converted them into tab. They are intentionally free.Originally posted by spaceboy
ace! so is this basically all you need from the DVD then? or do you still need to buy it to get the most from it?
poor John, getting his lovely DVD stolen... ah well ^_^

I'd like to clear up what seems to be misconceptions regarding the John McLaughlin DVD boxset 'This Is The Way I Do It'.
Firstly, to Simeon, I thank you for the link. Much appreciated.
To Spaceboy: If indeed your post made reference to John's music appearing on my website, your use of the word 'stolen' is quite a serious accusation, but I shall give quarter, and provide a civilised response below.
In addition to http://www.johnmclaughlin.com http://www.abstractlogix.com the John McLaughlin DVD guitar scores are also available from my site because I am the person who scored them. Guitar scores for the entire 12 DVD Chapters are complete. Although the .midi files which were generated from the written scores can be helpful, they are provided only as a supplement and hopefully to inspire the serious guitarist to purchase the DVD.
To Donnie: All modal, harmonic and rhythmic structures of the guitar scores were meticulously analyzed mathemusically, written out long hand on manuscript, and then entered into and prepared on the computer over a 7 week period of time. This work was done by me and with John's personal authorization. Nothing was 'converted' until the final phase when the native Finale and PowerTab files were converted into Adobe PDF format to be made readily available on the net, and no score has been made available without John's generous permission.
I hope I have successfully answered any questions you may have had regarding these scores and their availability.
I have only today joined this forum, and a fine and informative forum it looks to be. I look forward to reading and learning from all of you.
Gennation, please elaborate. From what I can tell reading your posts, we see eye-to-eye on many things musical. I'd like to know what, specifically, are you gaining from the DVD? Is it more theoretical or technical? Is it a lick-library? Is it hands-on with immediate impact, like Don Mock's suff? Or do you have to do alot of mining, like "Chord Chemistry"? Have you come away with any revelations?Well my wife got me the DVD for some occasion...let me tell you, the $160 was chump change for how much they are worth. Trust me, you WANT the DVD's...
