Personal Note: Randy Osborne-the owner of Fine Fretted String Instruments is the voice that made this DVD possible. I pleaded with the copyright owner to not let this performance go out of print as a VHS video, but to change the format to DVD, so that it could be welcomed in today's market. I'm very proud to have done this.
