Very good job on the Ralph's Reel video. Great tone and great playing. I'd love to have this Mooney style instruction DVD. I'll be ordering it in the near future.

It arrived today! I was already impressed with the list of topics covered. The video and sound quality are excellent and it turns-out Al is an excellent teacher. I don’t think its going to be “easy” but, everything is clearly explained and you can see everything going on. The demonstration of old Fender guitars is gratuitously awesome.

Thanks all the work you put into this project guys!

I'm sure I would want the tablature if it existed but, honestly after only one viewing I can admit (to my-self) I would be FAR better-off learning it from the video in order to capture the essence and...

timing.

Cool! Everything is very clear; you can see the pedal work, and it is really good ear training to listen and then lock in. Tab is helpful, but overrated IMHO. Music comes in through your ears

I watched it through yesterday and it is excellent. Combine it with the re-released Buck Owens CDs and the re-run of the Jeff Newman 'Moon-Eared' series of articles on the PSGA magazine and you have a must have tuition pack. After all, wasnt Mooney the reason Jeff started playing in the first place?

And the view of the underside of the Fender is a revelation - the cables really work!

I agree. This is a fun DVD to watch, even if you aren't sitting at your guitar. Al is a great player of Bakersfield style pedal steel, and he's real good at explaining what he's doing, too.

Got my DVD today and watched a bit of it at work this afternoon. Nice stuff and Al does a very good job of breaking down the tunes into sections/phrases that are easy to follow and understand. Four Stars in my book!

Yes I still have these for sale, Paypal only.
If you want to pay any other way, you have to purchase from Al.

Yes, tab is now included, 18 full size pages.
I'm very impressed with the tab. It was done by Forum Brother Tim Tweedale, proof read by Al.
Timing and chords are indicated.

Here's a partial screen shot:

Thanks for the interest.

Yes, Chippy, that's the plan. I hope to make it an annual event, produce it in the Spring, and release no later than early Summer.

Al's agreeable with this plan.

Please email me with any suggestions for future DVDs. "Mooney II" ? or ???

I try to answer all emails, and really appreciate the support.

Joey,

Got my DVD on Saturday. This is just the stuff I've been looking for. Just listening to it gives me a high.

I have tried some of it, and although I'll never be a Mooney clone, I can get some of the sound in just a couple of days. I really had no idea what to do before I got the DVD. The tab really helps.

For an old guy learning new tricks, I'll need some time in the woodshed. Got to learn that Ralph's Reel.

Thanks for the help Al and Joey!

Joey -

I am really enjoying working with the basic 8 string, 3 pedal arrangements that Al did on the Fender.

Yes, Yes ! , More Mooney ! and more of the 8 String TAB. What about some of the stuff from "Corn Picking and Slick Sliding" ?

If you like Mooney, you'll love this DVD. Al does a great job playing Mooney style, and the Tab is very good also. I'm still trying to learn Ralph's Reel. It's a little tricky, you got to have fast feet, and get the pull-off's down pat, but it's well worth the practice. Very good job Al, Joey, and Tim.
