Learn Country Style Piano is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 3 .
Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Cool in its own way.... Obviously, these old pre-internet, VHS lessons, are long in the tooth. But, there is still a lot of value in them. This particular one doubles as a mini history of country piano lesson. I had as much fun looking up the artists mentioned/reviewed, as the actual lesson itself.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Bob Hoban Rules! This was not only informative for piano players, but for any one who wants to understand Country Music, it explains things in a way that clarifies some of the history of country music. I will say that some of the chords ar enot explained in a way that a beginner would understand immediately. If there was notation attached to this it would be a very valuable resource.
