"Truly enjoyed this introduction to Django type guitar. Great teaching design on Paul Mehling’s part and well edited. Gets you upwards and playin in no time." - B. Moore, Berkeley, CA
"I was amazed at the amount of information that Mehling can present in a mere hour, including strumming designs (giving both right-hand and left-hand techniques), chord voicings, cable connections between accompaniment and also lead, bass-like patterns, a short overview of Gypsy guitar kinds and some really appealing 2-guitar demos… Also, Mehling supplies a vast number of practical exercises, practice ideas and (what I identified especially valuable), factors the musician inside the right direction so far as self-development in this style…. All this, he does while supplying sensible recommendations and also suggesting an appropriate rate of study and progress (“don’t overshoot and try to seem like Django in a week…”).
"The accompanying booklet is extremely informative as it presents all the chords which Mehling uses on the video… I am extremely happy with this DVD, which I will continue studying vigilantly. Bravo, Paul Mehling." - Tom Leoni, Alexandria, VA
