GENERAL SERIES INFO:
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 but good basic guitar abilities are a prerequisite of this series and it is geared most 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. On some even the more experienced players may still find surprises or can move more quickly to the more advanced parts of the chords, riffs or 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 JOURNEY DVD:
Great guitar progressions, riffs & songs!
This is about average difficulty for classic rock and doesn't have very large extended lead breaks but might be the king of the hook, espeically fat higain melodic riffs. Also includes some nice hybrid-picked arpeggios and double stop work on parts from Lights and Wheel in the Sky which can be challenging but very fun to get down. It covers some very well known guitar-based riffs and progressions from songs that got a huge amount of radio airplay and screamed from the guitars of Schon-style rockers the world over -- great riffs, great songs!
