GENERAL SERIES INFO:
This DVD contains a series of lessons from a guitarist with 30 years experience playing, performing and teaching rock guitar. The goal was to create a series of instructional DVD videos light on ego and unnecessary commercial filler. The emphasis is on easy to follow lessons full of bang4buck value with each DVD being the equivalent of many individual private lessons. This series 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 difficult parts or leads over time as you progress.
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 geared toward a range within the intermediate category. This series does NOT include any TAB or written material - its designed to teach thru visual and audio instruction and demonstration as well as training the ear toward the ultimate goal of being able to pick out songs by ear. The series focus is on the fingering hand, while picking hand shots are included when necessary.
NOTES ON The CARS DVD:
Fun progressions, leads and super hits of The Cars!
This well known band had a string of hits from the late 70's thru the 80's. I originally thought The Cars guitar might be too simple for this series but in researching and learning the songs I was pleasantly surprised. The chord progressions are certainly familiar and not too difficult, but they work the 2 guitar format well with each doing slightly different things creatively. The are not lots of extended leads but they are make each one count - leads come on fast and strong and sometimes can be very difficult, I believe thanks to Elliot Easton's great ability and Berkley Music background. However like all their music they are full of hooks and great melodic content and actually cover a number of styles from intense roots and punk rock to rockabilly. Too much stuff to choose from once again, I managed to pack in well over 2 hours in 8 lessons onto 1 DVD.
