    This title covers a little of many styles and so probably has something for everyone. I found the section on Brazilian styles and the harmonic minor stuff really useful and worth the price of the DVD, even though I don't need 80% of the rest. It isn't too...

    fast ... it just has a lot to cover! As for chord names...they ARE flexible beasts. I would like Jamie to do a set of DVDs for specific types of music as this would target his audience better.

    all he says is okay do this and play this and you have it! He doesnt teach anything and he has his own names for the chords! all he says is just do this. And most of all he is way to fast!
