    Though I enjoy Doc's music this lesson is not easy to follow. i don't think he always plays what is provided in the tabs and he plays so fast that it is hard to follow. Also, Doc has a unique style of finger pickin gin that he only...

    uses two fingers. Hard to replicate. Lastly the guy filming his fingers doesn't always have his hand in view so you can't tell whats going on. This is for adavanced guitarists.
