    I'm pretty sure that the company that made the video also sells a much bigger book with all the transcriptions/lessons. You might want to try contacting them.

    I must admit to a situation similar.

    I downloaded the Louis Johnson Star Licks video. But like you, i was with the booklet that goes with it. I really wanted to learn from the video so i went out and bought it the old fashioned way. That way i had a booklet, a video and a large .avi file.

    No longer needing the video tape i took it to a mates place and told him he could keep it. He said he wasnt sure how long it would be before he could sit down with it and enjoy and i told him it didnt matter it was his. I told him to make a copy of the booklet :hide: and id be back in two weeks.

    Two weeks later, I lob round to his place. He said he hasnt had a chance to see the video. I told him (again) that the video was his and i didnt need it back and that i had only come for the booklet.

    His reply.... "what booklet?"

    He lost the booklet! :crying: i couldnt believe it.

    I had even told him the whole story about how i downloaded it but went out and bought it again later cause i didnt have the booklet. He knew how important it was. He kept saying "i'll have a see for it etc etc" but i know he hasnt. (2 months)

    What do i do? Is it lost forever? Do keep at him about it? Do i ask that he replace it? Is this karma?

    The bassist from our church band just recently let me borrow the video. Sadly, it was missing the booklet aswell. Twas an awesome video, though. :)

    You can get the book along with a cd of the examples for about $25.00.
