3.0 out of 5 stars Mostly very good - but there may be a better alternative, 9 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Learn to Play - Peter Green [DVD] [NTSC] (DVD)
On the plus side - the breakdown of licks is excellent, with every track broken down and featured in great detail. The examples and performances are played with great expertise and sensitivity - and clearly with a huge amount of respect for Peter Green.

Still on the plus side - the camera angle is excellent for seeing where the fingers are placed on the fretboard. There is also a small box bottom right of the screen where you see a smaller view of what the right hand does. This is less useful for lead demos but is handy for rhythm where the different uses of up and down strokes are clearly seen.

-------------------------------------------------

BUT, on the down side - there is a total absence of simple fretboard diagrams which show chord shapes or 'boxes' for each lick. I've seen these on other tutors and they are invaluable for beginners and intermediate player. Neither is there any form of booklet insert with diagrams or tab.

Also on the down side - it really helps if you are already familiar with both common and more unusual chord names as these are mentioned with some frequency.

-------------------------------------------------

So - on balance - this DVD is an excellent resource but there IS also a separate tutor available which comes with a book and TAB. Look for 'In Session with Peter Green: (Guitar Tab)'. I suggest you have a look at that product before you finally decide what to buy. It is on this Amazon website.
