    I have Redd's DVD and I love it. He shows some of his favorite licks and he explains them really well... man I was so excited to learn those licks!!
    As for Matt Rae's and Todd Barth's, I don't have them but I'm sure they are full of good stuff :)

    Redd's DVD is a must-have if there ever was one. You get instructional video, tab booklet, interview and a full concert at the Continental Club with his band and Cindy Cashdollar on steel.
    Should come with every Fender Tele, IMO.

    +1. If it ain't Redd, it's half dead.

    Check out a utube fellow called ndguy, he has 56 short videos demonstrating some killer licks.

    I got to see Redd at the Continential Club last week on vacation and picked up the DVD then. I haven't even checked out the "stolen licks" portion yet, but have watched the "concert" footage about three times. I can find a lot to learn just from that! And the "you are there in Redd's car" interview is a hoot. What a great guy.

    I have Matts. I got, and am still getting, a lot out of it.

    I don't have the others but something tells me I soon will.

    Guitar Pro by Brent Mason by far the best IMO
    150 licks

    Redds doesnt have a lot of licks...maybe 20

    I bet the Todd Barth one is decent if not great. I have a few of his books on country playing and they are pretty good. He does seem to steal a few licks from Brent Mason...who hasn't though?

    I have bought a LOT of Redd's vid. I get it and then before I get a chance to look at it I am talking to someone and the next thing you know, they have a new DVD.
    I didn't know that Matt had a DVD out, but I can guarantee you I will be picking it up.
    Redds DVD is great for a purist. He does all of those neat old honky-tonk riffs, and then at the end of the DVD there is a video of Redd and Cindy Cashdollar playing together at the Continental club. They should get hitched if he or she are not married. They fit together on stage like Laurel and Hardy. I have learned a lot that I thought I knew on his vid. Sent one to a buddy in Canada last fall, and he was enraptured by the playing.
