Being relatively new to to guitar playing, I realy didn't know which MAB instructional DVD to go for, assuming they all would be really hard to do. I opted for this one and so far I am really pleased with the excercises and easy to follow format. My picking has always been ok ( well i think so anyway) but my fretboard hand is weak. I have been doing the alternatate picking exercises from 1 to 7 and I have seen a great improvement with my finger dexterity, especially the little finger and ring finger. I do still miss the strings sometimes, which is really annoying, but so far its getting much better. The string skipping was a challenge for me as I did not think I would be able to get my head around it, but after a few day's, I have been able to learn the sequence ok. So far I am looking forward to doing the other exercises in due course. I noticed on the schedule this week that MAB is filming another Speed Kills 1, 2 and 3 to be released in the spring. I wonder what he will be teaching in those.
