This DVD contains a series of lessons from a regular guy who is also a guitar teacher with 30 years experience playing, writing and teaching. The goal was to create a series of no-frills instructional videos each of which are the equivalent of many individual private lessons. The emphasis is on easy to follow lessons, light on ego and flashy production techniques but full of instructional value: showing, teaching and explaining rhythm and lead lines to some of the worlds greatest classic rock tunes. This series of DVD's personalizes the process and covers each lesson completely through demonstrations, explanation and close up views of the fingerings. You progress at your own pace - playing easier parts first and picking up more each time you play it!
This DVD series includes lessons that are designed to benefit a wide ranges of ages and abilities. Good basic guitar abilities are a prerequisite of this series and it is gear toward a range within the intermediate category. Early intermediate students can find months of material to work on in each DVD - starting on easier songs and working up to the more difficult. The more experienced players may still find surprises in the easier material or just move more quickly to the more advanced details of the chords, riffs and leads. This series does NOT include any TAB or written material - its designed to teach thru visual and audio instruction and demonstration. By watching and playing along with guitar in hand, the student is also training his ear with the ultimate goal of being able to pick out songs on their own. (The series focus is on the fingering hand, while picking hand shots are included when deemed necessary, most basic strumming and individual note picking is understood at this level.)
NOTES ON Billy Joel DVD:
Great Guitar Riffs & Songs!
This is an in-depth look at the guitar of Billy Joel who has written some of the worlds greatest songs. The variety of style and difficulty level between some of these guitar parts is fairly high. A rock guitarist can feel right at home with some of the classic rock oriented parts like You May Be Right. However, a song like Honesty has many chords and a fairly complicated progression full of Major7th and Diminished chords - very comfortable territory for a Jazz guitarist but not necessarily standard Rock fare. Captain Jack sits in the middle, also using a sweet Major 7th Chord but with much simpler progressions that can great platform for soloing over even while modulating between 2 keys.
