Arlen Roth – The Art of Soloing is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 2 .
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Wonderful Lessons of Soloing! Arlen is a master of expression and teaches it very well in this high quality video. His playing and his explanations are spot on. I found the PDF Tab to be just fine to follow along with his exercises. Highly recommend these lessons for any intermediate player wanting to deepen their soloing skills and vibe.

Rated 1.5 out of 5 by from Great Guitarist - Horrible Tech for lesson I remember why I cancelled my membership a few years ago. Disappointed in quality of lesson support materials. Basically you get a PDF with untitled sections so you get to guess where you are with respect to the video. Hal Leonard needs to step up their game and bring some industry standard tools to the show. Again, great guitarist - other than a PDF there's nothing else to support the videos.
