I attended the Dallas Crossroads Guitar Festival. It brought back many memories and gave me a close-up view of the details I missed. The DVD was very well done with one bad edit. At the end of one song, a guitar seems to morph into a completely different one on the last note. See if you notice the first time you watch it.
