In this 102 minute (1 hour and 42 minutes) instructional DVD video Tim May and Dan Miller teach you how to find the chord progression and melody to any vocal song or instrumental tune by ear and then they show you how to embellish that melody in order to create your own interesting and tasteful guitar solo.The techniques covered in Tim and Dan's unique and effective approach include:

- Finding the chords by ear
- Finding the melody by ear
- Playing the melody and adding harmonic and rhythmic content by learning the basic "Carter Style" approach
- Learning how to "supercharge" the Carter style by examining how to subdivide the beat with strumming variations and neighboring single string articulations, adding crosspicking, and using a "toggle note" or drone string.
- Learning how to use straight scale runs to embellish the melody
- Learning how to use "folded scales"
- Learning how to apply the cross picking technique
- Learning how to apply the use of harmonized scales in the form of double-stops and harmonized scale runs
- Learning how to integrate all of the above and embellish all of the above with slides, pull-offs, hammer-ons, slides, and bends.
