        It gets you playing the bouzouki very quickly.
        It's not really a raw beginners guide .it assumes that you know a little about chord structures and have had some basic lessons in playing a fretted intrument.

        Brilliant DVD!. Zan only plays tunes he is going to teach you. None of this 'Look how good I am but I'm not going to show you how to play it'. There are some excellent tunes to learn but if you haven't played Bouzouki before then be prepared for sore fingers and long stretches.

        The DVD starts out quite advanced, I would have expected to see backing of tunes with basic Chords building up to the more sophisticated fingering. However it is still a very good DVD and worth having if you own a Bouzouki or Mandola and wish to back Irish tunes

        This is fantastic. You need to have some experience on a fretted instrument, but most people thinking of taking up Irish Bouzouki will have that. Good value when you think £20 would get you one, or at most 2 face to face lessons. Here you'll get 5 good tunes and loads of technique. If anything could be improved it would be close ups on the left hand fingers. Its the best DVD of its kind I've seen. - Thank You. Now, all I need to do is make time each day to put some practice in!
