Nokie did do some Japanese instructional videos in the 90s - I've never seen them. Also there are a couple of instructional dvd's shown on his website which are no longer available!

Been trying to track down Nokie's "How To Play Caravan" tape for years with no luck.  :(

Walt:
You never sold me any instructional videos.  The only instructional video of Nokie that I have is a DVD for Alabama Jubilee.
I wanted to get those instructional videos myself but had no luck.

I love Nokie's style of playing and can recognize when he is on lead guitar. I'm not sure if I became a fan of the Ventures because of Mosrite guitar or the other way around but Nokie's playing and the Mosrite sound made it a very special sound.

I think his equipment now consists of the Hitchhiker guitar, and a blonde Fender amp, but I have seen him play with a Twin 15 as well. He plays with fingers and finger picks, and is simply amazing. He doesn't have a whammy bar anymore as he doesn't need it. He plays the note flat and bends it's so it's at the pitch he wants and then just releases the bend to get the pitch change. Simply amazing
