Music Theory Tutorial: A Musical Journey with John Carlini (Guitar technique and theory for Jazz, Bluegrass, Country, Blues)

Ubs: Basics of Guitar Theory

Play Piano in a Flash -- One review writes "After spending hundreds of dollars buying a keyboard and midi equipment as well as PC learning software to try to learn to play the piano and being frustrated with the program and process, I picked up Scotts dvd after seeing him on PBS and I have to say I've learned more in 1 day than I did in the months I tried fiddling with the PC learning software.

Scott makes it so simple, breaking it down and not making it feel like a chore. I would also recommend people getting his book to accompany the dvd, the content in the dvd is great as is the quality, I just wish there was a chapter break down so I can skip easily to parts I want to see rather than fast fowarding or rewinding over and over. It's split up into 2 sections, the first section was show on PBS while the 2nd section is new, with a lot of more content as well as "cheap tricks" to make you sound like a pro, which I LOVE. It's been 3 days since I got the DVD and I can play 3 of my favorite songs. I recommend it!"
