I wasn't aware that Michael Romeo had an REH video.. just that one from Young Guitar which I actually have and it isn't a complete watch me play at lightning speed video. Are you sure it's actually a Michael Romeo video?
All the Paul Gilbert videos are great to learn stuff stuff. The Yngwie REH video was a completely waste of cash, but his Young Guitar videos aren't bad at all. (Yngwie's YG Play Loud series of videos is what I learned how to play guitar from actually).
Here's my list of recommended guitar videos, check 'em out if you can, these are all videos I recall learning something from:
Paul Gilbert - Terrifying Guitar Trip, Intense Rock I & II, Guitars from Mars I & II + ANY BOOTLEG GILBERT CLINICS YOU CAN FIND!!
Yngwie Malmsteen - Young Guitar Play Loud I, II & III (the Full Shred video is more performance/clinic than anything)
Michael Romeo - The Guitar Chapter (Young Guitar - Discontinued)
John Petrucci - Rock Discipline
Al Di Meola - Al Di Meola
Joe Satriani - Bootlegged guitar clinic(s). I know there's the one he did in Moscow but he also did one more guitar clinic before that, but I'm not too sure if anyone got a bootleg of that
Steve Vai - There's at least 2 or 3 bootleg guitar clinics
Marty Friedman - Melodic Control, Exotic Metal Guitar(it's not great but it's not bad), Essential Marty Friedman(not bad either). There's also an old Young Guitar instructional video he had which I havent' seen. (AVOID His 99 Secrets video that's sold off his website!!)
Jason Becker - Bootleg Aim Clinic(or just get the Hotlicks video which has clips from the AIM clinic, but not the whole thing)
Eric Johnson - Total Electric Guitar, Fine Art of Electric Guitar
Shawn Lane - Power Solos
There are other videos out there that aren't bad either especially the DVD's that come with some of the Young Guitar mags.
(Holy $#!T, I can't believe I own that many videos and more!!)
