Reviews:

"The one-time Jefferson Airplane star patiently dissects his style and technique on this video, offering excellent insights on everything from rhythm playing to soloing to band interaction. Kaukonen offers plenty of valuable information on the most mysterious and important element of great playing -- emotion -- with candor and style."-- Guitar World

"5 Stars: Excellent lessons from a master...

Jorma Kaukonen takes a simple, classic rock approach to rock and blues lead electric guitar. Lead lines come from inside the chords used, so you can build awesome solos easily and effectively. Jorma teaches lots of rock and blues licks and techniques (false harmonics, string bending, 3 octave licks, string snapping, use of pick and fingers) and also gives advice on equipment, practice, tuning, etc. What really makes this an exciting set of lessons is the demonstration of the material by Electric Hot Tuna. Each tune is broken down after a performance in the Homespun studio. I've returned time and again over the years since this first came out (early 90s) and what I like is that it is technique oriented and doesn't require any memorization of lots of scales and modes or long, superfast licks. The techniques presented here encourages thinking musically, improvising, and staying fresh. It probably isn't what the heavy metal shredder types are looking for, though I always think you can benefit from getting tips from an accomplished master." -- Learn Guitar DVD.com

Tons of great licks.

A lot of great tips & licks to your Pentatonic scale in different keys. Jorma did a great job of passing on his knowledge. 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the guitar vol. and too much treble during his explanations and the voice audio did not match gtr vol. Still there's a lot to learn.
