Mark's first instructional DVD, titled "Mark Tremonti - The Sound and the Story" was released in 2008 following the release of Alter Bridge's Blackbird album.  Like the upcoming Alter Bridge DVD, this release contained a variety of material including a documentary, guitar exercises, and lessons on the Blackbird solos.
