series difficulty rating=2 (10=most difficult)

Learn rock classics the fun way!

This DVD series contains lessons from a guitarist with 30 years experience playing and teaching rhythm and lead lines to some of the worlds greatest classic rock tunes.  This series of DVD's uses a simple easy to follow method and covers each song completely.  It is designed to be an informal fun series of lessons, packing as much information on these songs as possible onto a recordable DVD.  Learn by close-up demonstrations, explanation and multi-speed 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 basic guitar abilities are a prerequisite.  However students can find months of material to work on in each DVD - starting on easier songs material and working up to the more difficult.  Not all students should expect to be able to play everything on some of the DVD's right off - the lead material is geared toward upper level Intermediate players with early intermediate players starting on the general chord and minor riff work.  DVD's that are more lead intensive will specify this in the descriptions and lead parts are intended for those with more experience.  Generally material that is slightly too difficult may appear 'unclear', too fast, or lacking in detail.  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.

Learn Neil Young DVD:  This is not a guitar hero DVD with a large amount of difficult lead material but it is chock full of classic Neil Young songs and grungey riffs.  While some songs may have techniques that are a bit more difficult than the rest, this video is considered overall about the intro level for this series and is suggested for students that are late beginner to early intermediate*.  The basic songs are fairly easy and could be played by most rhythm players with basic chord knowledge. The leads and single note riffs are classic Neil, which are not overly complex speed licks, but usually melodic, rhythmic, even hypnotic blasts of semi-chaotic nature. The electric Young's riffs are meaty, grungy, heavy and fun to play, and even though there is not a lot of technical lead work he makes his notes count for something even within the straight minor pentatonic framework. A MUST for Electric Neil fans who love these songs but don't already know how play them completely.

*(This series is not designed for absolute BEGINNERS who have yet to learn basics of electric guitar but also is not suggested for very ADVANCED players who prefer a whole DVD be spent on detailed, advanced lead work.  Either extreme could find parts of the series useful but also could find parts either too difficult / too simple if expecting something its not.  This series is geared toward beg-adv intermediate players who want to learn the complete songs w/techniques and leads made popular by these artists.  Specific level of material difficulty is dependent on the original artist/songs being learned.)
