Comments about Hal Leonard Lick Library Steve Trovato's Country Guitar in 6 Weeks DVD Guitar Course:
For an intermediate player with more of a rock background, this was perfect. Many licks and parts of scales I'd been fooling around with were fully explained. I now have a better understanding of what to play and when to play it. Each lesson built on the previous. Tricks, licks, scales, backing tracks to jam with to let you use what you've learned. I don't think you could get this much out of personal lessons. And you have the CDs to refer back to if you forget things.
