          Really excellent. Easy to understand, and relates most jazz sounds to the major scale. He reminds you that you don't have to learn loads of theory before playing jazz - you have to get into the sounds. This is not 'simplified' jazz or 'Mickey Mouse' - this is the real deal by someone who really knows. Also some great tips on economy picking as opposed to alternating. His sweep playing is much more musical than Malmsteen, too!
