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 Steve Miller DVD:
Great Rhythms, Riffs Songs!
Steve Miller is known for great songs and excellent tasty guitar parts, but not for excessive self-indulgent soloing. Generally the basic chords for most songs are not a very difficult that could be played by newer players on acoustic or electric but there are also some very cool guitar parts that are not for the newer player and require some lead skills. I was surprised at how many styles could be covered and the selected songs go from the well known Blues, Funk, and Pop of his biggest hits, to the Country/Bluegrass of Dance Dance Dance and great Rockabilly guitar of Heart Like a Wheel. While the use of leads are always complimentary to the song and never just for the sake of wanking, some of these classic songs are great beds for soloing so I also discuss improvised soloing over changes where none existed on the original version. The Joker has a great slide solo which is best done in Open Tuning but also show how it would be done in Standard tuning which helps to demonstrate why open tuning is so great for slide. So while this DVD is good for newer players who just want to play the basic changes, there should also be enough challenging material for even more advanced players to benefit from.
