AllMusic Review by

Terrifying Guitar Trip, Paul Gilbert's third instructional video, may be his best yet. Including the usual amount of highly useful exercises for the practicing guitarist (and truly frightening displays of Gilbert's over-the-top technique), it's also loaded with Gilbert's goofy sense of humor, which makes the video a treat to watch even for non-musicians. Gilbert also offers tips on more "big-picture" topics like working with managers and producers. Plenty of entertaining live and in-the-studio footage of Gilbert with his band, Mr. Big, are intercut with the lessons as well, making this video a must for Gilbert's fans, be they guitarists or not.
