    I give this 5 stars because it's the grateful dead's music and because there is so little transcription material for the Dead. but 4 songs here(Casey Jones,Friend of the Devil,Uncle John's Band,Truckin'} are covered in more (and more accurate detail)on another DVD...

    : "Song xpress-Grateful dead play their songs now." This "legendary licks" dvd does however add a few touches of lead guitar that add to what's in the other dvd. And it has an extra 4 tracks, one of which includes a longer and really quite decent attempt to write down a Garcia style solo( the world is crying out for some Jerry Garcia lead guitar style dvds - where are they?}. So, all in all - could have taken more care with the rhythm guitar parts but a useful complement to the other dvd I mentioned, and a worthwhile addition to the paltry body of Grateful dead transcripts/teaching-material.

    Not bad. I'm a beginning guitarist, and I have found this product to be informative. If the guy giving the lesson went a little slower, perhaps it would be more helpful, but if you watch each scene a couple of times, it becomes pretty easy to pick up on...

    what's going on. Perhaps it would also help to hear the songs played a little more instead of just being sliced up, but I guess that's what the recordings are for.
