For the first time on DVD, Al Di Meola shares the techniques and concepts that have made him one of the worlds most respected and influential guitarists. Al shows his scale choices for soloing over various chords, including a special section on the dominant 7th-diminished connection. Many of his melodic lines licks, rhythm patterns, and even solos have been transcribed in the accompanying booklet. Right-hand technique follows as Al demonstrates his amazing picking, including rhythmic ideas, muting, and chordal picking. In the exciting section on rhythm playing, he shows some challenging comping patterns. Throughout this DVD, Al performs many of his fine compositions, such as "Cielo e Terra" and "Orient Blue," and in some cases, through the magic of editing, Al plays both the rhythm and lead parts.
