From the Contributor:

Review: Acoustic Guitar Magazine Feb 2002 by David McCarty For those who are ready for a more advanced & demanding look at swing & jazz guitar, John Carlini’s 2-DVD or VHS set, "Chord Solo Guitar," takes basic swing arrangements to a whole new level. Anyone who has marveled at the grace & sophistication of great solo jazz guitarists like Joe Pass will want to check out Carlini’s videos, which open the door to such demanding arrangements. Incorporating a host of jazz standards, the videos delve deep into the theory needed to make a single acoustic guitar sound like a band of seasoned jazz cats. The videos are aimed at helping the sutdent play the melody, chords, & bass line in such a way as to suggest the tune’s complete arrangement. The production values are very strong, with great lighting, sound, & split-screen camera work. What’s most impressive is that Carlini, who may be best known for mentoring flatpicking wizard Tony Rice, manages to present these complex concepts clearly & simply. Alternating between fingerstyle & flatpicked arrangements, he gives the student a broad understanding of the fundamental elements of jazz chord soloing.
