I have it, use it, and love it. This program teaches fundamental playing techniques from beginner to advanced. Even an advanced player (I consider myself intermediate) can go back to beginner stuff in this program and hone those skills. This program will not teach you a bunch of riffs and licks. Jerry suggests that you listen to real recordings of the masters to learn those. Jerry does, however, teach you the techniques that the masters use in playing those licks and riffs.
I have found that not every great musician is a great teacher. Mr. Portnoy is both. It seems like he has very carefully chosen every word that he uses on the program. There are no wasted words or instruction. His instruction is clear, consise and provided with excellent playing examples.
I highly recommend this program!
: Is this a good one and worth the money? I checked the banner here on it and also found it on e-bay.Would like some feedback on this. Thanks,
