QUOTE
Season 1 of Cracking the Code is a rocking documentary that recounts the story of virtuoso guitar amid the unprecedented flowering of technique in the ’80s. Across 8 episodes, and nearly 1.5 hours of analysis, it sets out the core technical challenges of the instrument — challenges which we’ll soon surmount in seasons 2 and 3.


Just scroll down.

Love the art style and the overall quality. Looks like it's gonna go into teaching picking or something in later seasons? They're doing a kickstarter-style thing to raise money; but I think it's all gonna end up free anyway.

QUOTE
The basic structure of the show is as follows:
Season 1 – Historical documentary + the roots of the problem: Why is guitar picking so difficult?
Season 2 – Intensive mechanical breakdown of picking technique, with solutions to many of the problems outlined in Season 1.
Season 3 – Interviews with players, including slow-motion footage analyzed using the system we develop in Season 2.

Yeah, the way he teaches is great. Goes into just enough detail for a guitarist to understand; but keeps it interesting for any non-musicians.

Here's him breaking down the theme song for the series. A lot of "here's what I did, this is how you can use it in your own playing." rather than just note-for-note teaching.
