“Being conversant with the modes is invaluable in both lead playing and chord work. For a crash course on the latter, check out this DVD and put a modern spin on your harmonies.”

—Guitar One magazine

“I have played guitar off and on for 35 years but I have never mastered the fretboard. I am self taught like most kids were and never had lessons. From time to time I will buy books but you can only go so far without live interactive instruction. DVD is the answer! A $20 DVD is worth 10 $40/hr lessons.”

—Kenneth D. Celli, Musician, Lawyer
