Wonderful

This is more of a getting to know Bonamassa than an instructional video, but that is exactly what I was hoping for.... He is such a monster player and getting a glimpse at his techniques and gear is just super fun.

Learned some stuff, but not quite what I expected

Always fun to watch Joe play but I was hoping for more detail on his actual playing. Amps/FX/guitars/mics was useful. Audio/video sync was bad on some of the videos. Aspect ratio is hosed.
