The Bottom Line
Whether you are a beginner or technically advanced in metal guitar playing, or even consider yourself a Pantera guitar expert, there is something to learn for everyone here. Are there riffs you wish were included and demonstrated on here (like key licks on awesome Pantera tunes like "Hollow" and Black Sabbath cover "Planet Carvan")? Sure there is, but this wasn't advertised as a comprehensive list of Mr. Abbott's greatest riffs and patterns. You could easily add 100 more to the 97 included here, and it still probably wouldn't be a complete list.
But there's more than enough here to occupy your time, and most importantly, to learn from. After all, the goal is to be able to say you can learn how to play Dimebag's most amazing riffs, isn't it? With Bowcott's demonstrations and the 28-paged digital guitar tab booklet that accompanies them, you should be able to do just that, and definitely become a better and cooler guitar player in no time as a result. This release is highly recommended.
