Boston: Guitar Play-Along is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 1 .
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Great Instruction for a Great Band This is a well produced play along video! The instructions are well planned and the details are vast! I loved this band and the music but always fumbled around and usually gave up on the details of Tom Sholz's style and just improvised. This set of video instructions just put everything in place so I am able to note-for-note the difficult parts! I wish that we could view the whole song tab as one complete sheet instead of have to start and stop the video to study the written details. For those of us who love the head bang of note-for-note study this video is outstanding!
