Any suggestions? Mostly Rock. Just something to kick me off in the right direction.

Troy Stetina's stuff is quite good

I've had my eye on this one for a while, by Tomo Fujita (he's a prof at Berklee).

A youtube clip of his playing can be found at (it's from the DVD)

It's more blues and funk, though.

I have some of Troy Stetina's books and they're pretty good for rock. I don't know about his DVDs, though.

I just ordered this DVD (the Tommy Fujita one). It should be in by Monday or Tuesday. I'll give it a review as soon as possible.

While this one doesn't really "teach" you how to solo, it does provide you with a large arsenal of licks to memorize. This way you can rip off a solo, in any key, from anywhere on the fretboard:

I'm interested in the Fujita DVD...ok,he's an excellent soloist, but please tell us how this DVD helps to solo. By the way I want to solo in acoustic...any DVD,book or methoud out there?

What are you after - seriously.

Lick Library do collections of DVD's called "Learn to play..." which teach you to play five songs at a time from such names as Jimi Hendrix, AC/DC, Queen, GnR, Led Zep, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Steve Vai, and so on, and they have some general sets focussing on solos and accoustic rock. They've also got some called Learn to play fast, Learn scale shapes, Tapping Techniques.

I don't normally recommend these guys because I don't have any of their products, but you can view DVD samples and lessons online at and who knows, it might work for you.
