    This review is from: Johnny Hiland: Chicken Pickin’ Guitar (DVD)

    Johnny’s a fantastic player, evidenced by some of the fantastic live playing that is captured in the studio on this disc. He’s also a really excellent teacher who takes the time to clarify things and slow them down for you. I’m a fan of this style of music and if I equate this to the Brent Mason Nashville Chops video, which is also excellent, it’s clear that though Johnny and Brent are both planet class players, Johnny’s a much better instructor. I’d highly recommend this to anyone who likes the chicken picken’ style.

    Bonus footage of Arlen jamming with Johnny –and with Danny Gatton’s ancient bandmates in the rhythm section!

    This is basically a training DVD for advanced Guitar players. But, Johnny Hiland is a “jaw dropping” guitar player and although I’m not a guitar picker I am an experienced musician. Hiland is one of the finest musicians I’ve ever seen. He is a wonderful combination of technical skills, talent, and incredible musicianship. The DVD was worth the price just to see and hear him play his incredible music.

    I usually do not like lesson videos, This one really turned my head. I caught a couple clips of Johnny playing on you tube. Wow
    this guy is incredible, fantastic tone! smoking chops! and best of all sweet humble and likable guy. The video is more than the usual hey check this out lightning lick of the week. His playing is well described on the video and in the booklet, which includes tab and standard notation. I like to have both these days. Johnny also talks a bit about his influences and gives them credit (Danny Gatton, Albert Lee) As much as I like this lesson Video (and I really do like it) a small more scheme would be cool,
    Just a small why can make the culture simpler. And this is not for stone cold beginners, If you can play pentatonic minor, blues scales you’ll be ok with some work. It has given me a new like when playing.
