          Fred takes you through each song in his relaxed and easy going style, breaking the them down into sections. His explanations of how to form each of the chords are clear and precise.
          A complete beginner might find it tricky to take on board some of the musical theory ideas. Some basic music theory is, I think, required in order to fully understand certain elements of the dvd.
