Guitar lessons with Al! May 5 2008
By Robert Krilic - Published on
Format: DVD
To sit and learn guitar from books and CDs is great but to have Al Di Meola give you a personal lesson on his playing style is as good as it gets! The DVD was shipped in record time and in great condition! It comes with a small music book (in tablature format for those that cannot read standard music notes)that disects what he does in the DVD. The lessons are absolutely excellent and if you are a di hard Al Di Meola fan you are going to want this DVD! I had been searching everywhere for it and was told that it was not likely I would ever find it in anything but VHS. The lessons are short but plenty of techniques to keep you busy for months! The live cuts of his playing are also dynamite and he even performs a couple of pieces of his music for you. Absoluetly the best DVD for beginners and advance players (who love his music)!

Great For Ambitious Guitarists Aug. 26 2002
By Brandon Stanley - Published on
Format: VHS Tape Verified Purchase
Filled with snippets of Mr. Di Meola playing guitar with his 'World Sinfonia' band, while also focusing primarily on his incredible technique, this video is ideal for both musicians who would like to know and play as Al does, as well as entertain any fan who is amazed by both his techniqual and composition skills. This video is a little old, about 10 years or so, and while the music is at least as old, it still is worth checking out. I feel that the 40 or so dollar price range is a little unacceptable, considering not only that the tape is rather old, but that the tape only comes with a 20+ page paperbacked booklet which only focuses mostly on solos. Still, though, it's the only instructional video that Mr. Di Meola has made so far, and you aren't going to find much better, as far as instructional videos from incredibly talented musicians go. I would recommend this product to either intermediate to advanced musicians, as Al's technique and mastery of the instrument far surpasses anything that a beginning guitarist could comprehend, and therefore I wouldn't recommend that a 'newbie' attempt to play these impossibly fast solos (although it is good for practice when slowed down!).

For the experienced as well as a new guitar player March 19 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: VHS Tape
I have used this video to learn so many new technics in my playing. I have noticed a great improvment not just in play AL's songs but all music. It is especially great for the young players, this way they can avoid bad habits from the start. I thing the video was great I still use it to review leads as well as running excersices in playing. All the best to those who love to play.

Excellent Instuction, Instantly Helpful June 10 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: VHS Tape
I do not have a lot of guitar instructional videos so I don't have a lot to compare it to. I DO have John McLaughlin's new DVD set and I have to say that I think I like Di Meola's better simply because its seems so much more concise. It helped my technique a lot just to see what he was doing. He goes over improv most of the time and hes able to fit a lot onto one DVD as opposed to McLaughlin's 3 DVD set and for only a fourth of the price. I just don't seem to have time for McLaughlin's stuff. I found this on DVD for $35 at a local music store and am very happy with the purchase. The performances are also great to see.
