I bought this DVD thinking that the instructor teaches the entire song. Wrong! While the instructor breaks down solos and riffs which makes it incredibly easy for people to play, only fractions of the song is explained.
I guess it's cool to be able to play signature riffs and solos, but I'd like to learn how to play the entire song. Only being able to play like a minute out of 6 minute Metallica song isn't worth buying a $20 DVD.
And the fact that the instructor does a wonderful job of explaining makes it worse. With his instructions, I could be playing any Metallica songs in no time (both James' and Kirk's parts) But, that's not the case here. It would've been the perfect way to learn hard Metallica songs.. but they stopped way way short of accomplishing that goal.

This is one of the worst instructional guitar DVD's I have ever seen. Not only does it not teach any full songs they only cover the easy parts that any intermediate guitar player could figure out themselves. If you want to buy something worthwhile go to [...] and buy their instructional DVD's for Metallica. Its more money and there is only 3 songs on the DVD but they teach you all parts (James and Kirks) for the entire song.

I expected to have the entirety of each song dissected on these DVDs. Not so. You only get the easy parts that you can figure out for yourself. For example, on "Sad But True" you only get the first few opening bars. Holy moley I had that already, and I bet that everybody else does as well.
Don't waste your money. If you have problems look up the tab on the net and just bang on the CD until you have it.

This DVD is absolutely excellent. It's like having your own private guitar teacher teaching you a host of Metallica riffs from 1988-1997 (riffs, licks, fills, & solos, depending on the song, from Enter Sandman, Fuel, Sad But True, Nothing Else Matters, One, Hero of the Day, The Unforgiven, and The Shortest Straw; plus Tuning (standard, 1/2 step down, and 1 full step down) and Metallica guitar techniques including guitar & amp settings).
Each song's riffs are done at normal speed, then slowly explained and shown note-by-note, and then played again at slower than normal speed--all with a split view of the fretboard and the string picking at the bridge so that you can see exactly what is happening at all times. The DVD also has a very good menu.
You can replay any section over and over again--which is very easy with a DVD player--until you get it, and then move on. Although I have the companion music book (with CD)1988-1996 Metallica, which I recommend, a DVD picture is worth a thousand words in showing you HOW something is done. I also have the other DVD in this series: 1983-1988 Metallica, which is just as great as this 1988-1997 Metallica DVD. It too has a companion book (with CD) that you can purchase.
I can't say enough great things about this DVD. I wish Doug Boduch, the guitarist in this DVD, and the production crew would put out a series of these on Van Halen, U2, Def Leppard, ACDC, Joe Satriani, the Smithereens, etc.

Waste of money Jan. 24 2004

Apparently, NOTHING ELSE (but the intro riff) MATTERS & this DVD format won't play on all machines May 24 2007
By Doug - Published on Amazon.com
When the product description states "Each riff and solo is played up to speed", my expectation was that each riff and solo of these songs is examined in their entirety on this CD. My expectations were FAR from met. On most of the songs, only the intro riff and perhaps a mid-song riff is explained. I have only watched about 1/3 of the DVD so far, but none of the solos have been shown yet. This DVD will only be satisfying to the utmost beginner that is not interested in playing whole songs. I wish I could get my money back.

To further infuriate me, this (and every Hal Leonard or Cherry Lane DVD I own) will not play on my home computer's DVD drive. I've contacted customer service and they have not replied or tried to help. All other DVDs I own will play in this drive. The DVDs will play in my home theater's DVD player, though.

For the record, the other Hal Leonard and Cherry Lane DVD's I own are:
> Metallica: Guitar Legendary Licks 1983-1988 (Cherry Lane/Hal Leonard)
> Metallica: Guitar Legendary Licks 1988-1997 (Cherry Lane/Hal Leonard)
> The Best of the Allman Brothers Band: Guitar Signature Licks (Hal Leonard)
No tab - No good Sept. 3 2010

One of the first things I did was to open the DVD on my computer, so I could print out the music I expected to find. There wasn't any. Instead, at the beginning of the DVD they tell you how to BUY the written music. This is pretty outrageous when most music instruction comes with PDFs, or booklets that allow you to read along with the visual instruction.

The only way to learn the licks is to is to constantly rewind stop, play, go back, - you get the idea. Since you also are playing a guitar at the time, manipulating your laptop, or DVD player isn't exactly a snap.

The instructor is OK, but tends to leave out some fingerings as he demonstrates the licks, assuming you'll remember it from a previous bar. This gets a bit annoying until you figure out his modus operandi.

As several others have mentioned, you don't get all of the music taught either. The only reason I gave this two stars, instead of one, is that with the extra effort mentioned above, you CAN learn the material, assuming you're a reasonably competent guitarist to begin with.
