          Musicroom Reviews

          I got this DVD because I love Strats, but if you're looking for an instructional DVD, then this may not be for you. Tom Kolb just seems facinated right through the DVD with the neck pickup of the Strat. There are a couple of useful ideas for guitar styles given by Tom, but in each example he's using a different Strat. The insight into the Fender factory manufacturing is worth a look, although don't look too closely as it might put you off buying one in the future.
