          I bought this with two intentions. One was to learn some of the old time classic folk blues and expand my repertoire for these. The other was to use the DVD as a basis for learning to create my own pieces better. The DVD does this exceptionally well, there is a good range of tracks on it which are all taught extremely well, as always, by Stefan Grossman. It is also really good in that it includes the origonal recordings of all of the tracks (with proper old time crackles in the recording!) so that you can learn to sing them in the origonal way, or if you wanted to make a few easy adaptions and sing them in your own way, like Dylan did with Corrina, Corrina. Overall I was very happy with it.
