          London GB I am a beginner
          It is like a private lesson. It is only about one thing, is clear, quite concise and easy to follow. It is good value for money. Real lessons are much more than this.
          It is fairly simple you are unlikely to need to watch it more than once.

          Haven't watched it all yet, but so far very good
          My fault, I thought it was going to be a book! Can't see any bad points.

          Very good value at the sale price. A good starting point for understanding the practical use of barre chords. So much easier to repeat sections on a dvd than on viewing web based instructions.
          Could have been a little longer, and covered more songs.
