Another Stefan Grossman Gem! 29 Aug. 2008
By Peter Hyatt - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I purchased this around July 1, and have been using it almost daily for my lessons and it is now, as I write this, after Oct 1. That means 3 full months of DAILY lessons and I am not halfway through the DVD.

The material is beautiful, but challenging. It is not for the beginner. If you are just starting out on acoustic blues, you cannot go wrong with "How To Play the Blues" series by Grossman. (see my reviews on all 3 volumes). Vol 1 starts with basic chords and some nice tricks, and Stefan skillfully advances, song by song, right up to some very nice sounding solos. In Volume 2, he does not miss a beat, but builds "line upon line, precept upon precept" straight through to Volume 3.

After finishing those 3, I e-mailed him (and received a very quick response!) and among other things, he recommended this DVD.

It is for the Intermediate to Advanced, and has WONDERFUL, and long (2 and 3 part) solos for the acoustic guitar. The first song is "Mississippi Blues". Have some fun and see his performance of it, from perhaps 30 years ago, on YouTube. One thing that amazes me about his teaching now (this is a recent release) is his enthusiasm for the song has not waned a bit.

What is most challenging is perhaps the pace that he moves, expecting us to keep up, but then becomes a "breath of fresh air" for song 3, "The Glory of Love" which lets us use some of the skills we learned in the 3 volume "How to Play the Blues" . It is not anywhere near the difficulty level of the other songs, but rivals them in beauty. Stefan cannot help but smile when he plays it and blushes a bit, apologizing for not being a singer (he actually seems to have a fine voice; right on key, but I won't argue with him).

He is a master teacher. Well famous for his playing, and with so few of the "stars" posessing the gift of teaching, Grossman,like a few others, stands out because he is a gifted teacher. He is that ONE teacher you had in high school that made learning exciting.

Let's hope that he has a part 2 of this DVD for us, and that he has NO PLANS on retiring soon. It is obvious that the teaching and production warrant many, many hours of work, so I know I am hoping for something that costs him a great deal of work, but it is so worth it.

This DVD may supplant 6 months of personal in home teaching. What might that cost you? The DVD is around $30. I have been on this for 3 months and am not even half way through. If a 1/2 hour lesson is $30, then 3 months of those lessons would be $360. This DVD may end up not only being 6 months of work, but like others, I will then put it away only to pull it out next year, or later, and review the material.

For such a nominal cost, I have this world-class teacher "in my living room" daily; imparting not only great music, but tiny tidbits of wisdom in practice; besides personal anecdotes that hold our interest.

Of course, the camera work, duel pictures, and close ups are impeccable.

This is a great course for intermediate to advanced finger pickers. Some really good tunes, thoroughly explained phrase by phrase and then played on the split screen so you can see what he is doing with both the left and right hand. Stefan is a virtuoso blues man but I suspect he could play superbly in any genre. It is worth the price of the lesson to hear him play the demonstrations.
