    This is really targeted at someone who has not really played funk before. It does a good job of covering the basics and a little more.

    The reason I put this review online is I couldn't find one anywhere about this DVD, I hope this one will be helpful. I love funk guitar and it's not always easy to find good material on the Internet. I wasn't sure at first if this DVD...

    would be cool, especially with its dodgy cover, but I was nicely suprised when I first heard the groovy licks I had to learn. Mister Slutsky is a cool funky guitarist apart from his haircut but that's another story... who explains very well all those funky concepts...You will also get a leaflet with all the tabs you have to learn. I am glad I bought this DVD. I left 4 stars because of the cover which is awful, but the whole lesson is worth your money and will definetly help you go beyond the basics of funk guitar. Write me an email if you have a question. groovy baby!
