The core of Gibson's Learn & Master Guitar is the DVD lessons. There are 20 DVDs produced in High Definition packed with lessons designed to guide you step-by-step on your road to guitar mastery.
Each of the many lessons has an instructional portion where Steve Krenz teaches you the day's concepts in detail, followed by a workshop time where you practice them together. The on-screen graphics make it easy to follow along, and a detailed menu allows you to jump quickly to any topic or exercise you may want to go over again.
