There’s almost nothing not to like about this DVD. It probably would not go over well with a real beginner. To really get in to this DVD you kind of need to have the pentatonics drilled in to you sonically so you can pick up the notes by ear in one or two passes. It helps immensely if you’ve already started scale based improvisation and know the I-IV-V song structure by feel. That’s kind of true of almost all “blues” DVDs though outside of the very beginner variety, and is not a shortcoming of the DVD. It had always been hard for me to look at the tab while following the DVD anyway. If you’re just building your foundation, this would not be a good choice.
These lessons are a great way to study to style, with a teacher who is very solid. This is a great hands on playing but it is not for someone just starting to play because the licks and turn arounds to songs are for advanced players to be able to learn it. This is a DVD to move you up a few notches to really enjoy the guitar. This DVD is packed with great styles.
