maybe I'm jumping the gun, but the way Frank speed picks scales is messing up my tried & true alternate picking (that I learned from his Chopbuilder video!). There is a disclaimer in the booklet saying "there is a slight trade off" by using his technique.
Instead of constantly alternate picking scales, he also uses small, 2-string "sweeps" to get to each next string. Maybe this will be benificial in the long run, but right now this technique is messing me up when I play some of the alternate picking licks I already know. I can't see the light at the end of the tunnel that assures me the time spent learning all this new stuff is going to make what I already know much faster.
however, the arpegios section, in which he sweeps several strings at a time, are good. I know because I had already mastered some similar "sweeps" prior to buying this DVD and they integrated seamlessly with my alternate picking.
The lessons are well constructed/taught and the video is very professionally edited.
I suppose the jury is still out...I can always edit this review, so I'll get back to you.
