    The product is great but what got me here was the implied inclusion of Sheet Music being available for Gene's excellent solos. Do you expect us to let this go!! You are a bunch of YERKS!! Wasting my time!!

    This is an excellent DVD and sure is to expand your knowledge of guitar playing and open up a lot more possibilities in the understanding of the guitar. For non players: it will create a better understanding and appreciation for the guitar.
