This is a hard video for me to review because it has some excellent material but it also has some flaws that are hard to overlook.
The best thing about this video is that Buddy Guy covers a large number of styles on this tape. He shows how to play in the style of T-Bone Walker, B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, and of course his own style. He points out some critical techniques that are needed to master T-Bone Walker's Stormy Monday. He also shows how to make a bigger sound when you are working with a small group.
The big flaw with this tape is that Buddy Guy doesn't really teach, he just shows the techniques as he plays each of the exercises. There is a booklet that contains tabulature and standard notion for all of the exercises. This tape is not for a beginning guitar player.
