After renting several how-to-play DVDs on-line to find one to own, I bought the SMP one to get me restarted on mandolin. Teacher Mike Taylor is folksy but guides you clearly, with great use of the split screen, through a good selection of traditional tunes. Instruction is straight forward and doesn't include things you really don't need to sit through over and over again (e.g., tuning). The tab booklet is complete and easy to read. Other mandolin DVDs featuring "recording artists" were old transfers from videotape with poor camera angles and unscripted instruction that gets tiresome after the repeated viewing needed to learn the songs. And when you're done, SMP has a new intermediate-advanced DVD for those ready to move on.
I have a vast collection of instructional videos and this one is one of the best!
