All of Paul's videos are great. *But i'd recommend Terriying Guitar Trip above all the others, in terms of fun and overall content.

First off try Rose-Morris in Denmark Street, London and a few of the other shops there.

If you really cant find it anywhere I will do you a copy.

Cheers

I personally prefer the intense rock series. The thing that really put me off about TTGT was the fact that PG spent quite a bit of time on licks, well mostly riffs from Mr.Big records. I'm not dissing Mr. Big, but I mean if I wanted to learn riffs I would have bought a tab book. The intense rock series IMHO utilizes stuff which are more helpful to a player in developing his own style such as that groove rhythm thing and the string skipping exercises displayed in Intense rock 2.

I JUST got into Paul Gilbert after I found out my guitar teacher played with him I wanted to buy a video and was going to post one just like this until I found it. So the Intense rock stuff eh? I already copied TGT and I think it's ok. The Intense Rock tapes sound like that's what I want.

I remember when I first saw that video back in '89 or so. I had to get someone to find my eyeballs after they dropped out of my head. *:shocked:

PG Intense Rock VOL 1.

Here's my tuppence worth in American it's $0.02

The first video IR I is good for excercises. Lots of three note per string stuff. The three note per string blues scale is great.
Basically it's straight ahead shredding

IR II is a bit more musical. We get some killer licks. Then some licks based on the pentatonic box. THen we get a Rhythm solo rhythm solo section where you can work on your timing and you can fit the blues licks in.

TGT is more for diehard PG fans there's some good licks but quite a lot of Mr.Big riffs. Although the intro to Colorado Bulldog is amazing and it's nice to see it done.
There's also a lot of interview bits and live footage.

Plus you get some acoustic stuff at the end

Personally if I had to pick just one PG vid it would be the first one, More licks plus you don't need a tab book as the tab is written on the screen. Personally this video helped me a lot with my picking, dodgy though it is.

You don't really need the video to practice. All he's doing is making a pattern then outting it into different scales so it's more musical. So take one pattern and apply it to 12 scales hey presto 144 licks (Practice each key remember)


And yes I'm also a big PG fan

If you want to get your basic chops and technique in shape,get the Intense Rock videos.

For some cool licks->TGT.

All three are great though and PG is one funny guy!

But surely the question on everyone's lips is...

"which PG video is best for the cooking?!"

Or am I buying these things for entirely the wrong reason?....
