I'd always wanted to learn guitar, but thought it looked too difficult. When my son gave up, it seemed a shame to waste the guitar, so being too embarrassed and broke to have lessons I bought this DVD on the strength of the high ratings it's received here; which are well deserved. This is a truly excellent DVD. The menu system is easy to use, each session is short and the instructions are clear, you're sent away at the end of each session to practice what you've just been shown using the practice tracks and you move on once you're comfortable with your progress. Because of the way the sessions are structured, you can work through them at your own pace, I'm taking it really slowly, but even so, (in my view) I've made great progress (I didn't think I'd be able to switch from chord to chord without looking, but I can now!. I'm (obviously) an absolute beginer, but I can see this will be useful to anyone who wants to brush up on their techniques, my husband plays 12 string acoustic - and knows everything ;0) - but I've even caught him strumming away in front of the TV. Buy this DVD, you will not regret it.
