    This review is from: House of Blues Beginner, Blues Guitar Level 1 (DVD)

    I could start my own blues guitar instructional business with all of the videos, dvds, and books that I have bought tiresome to learn blues guitar. I’m a very methodical learner and need the huge picture first and then information organized into digestible chunks of data–and then repetition. This is the first time that everything came together in a complete lesson series. The teaching pedagogy of this Blues Guitar Level 1 is outstanding–well organized and comprehensive. I bought Level 1 & 2 but will spend the next 4-6 months being pleased with just Level 1. I didn’t even take the shrink wrap off of Level 2 after previewing Level 1. I’m also an educator and recognize and deeply appreciate the time, culture techniques and brilliant navigation that went into making this dvd. To take a basic (and ancient) folk guitarist like myself and have me know how to play blues lead guitar surrounded by 90 minutes is a real testament to the quality of this instructional dvd. I have months of practice to do now, but at smallest amount this dvd puts in front of me clearly what I’m reaching for and how to get there. When I’m ready, I’ll be able to go to an outstanding private teacher I know to refine my technique. For $19.99 you will not have wasted a dime of your money buying this Blues Guitar Level 1. Hats off to John McCarthy and the instructional team that place this dvd together.

    I was very impressed with the information and how it was presented. I have been playing guitar for 25 years and I picked up some things I didn’t know. This is not for the complete beginner, but maybe for someone who has a few chords and songs below their belt and wants to learn to play some leads. The instructor makes if very fun to learn, with slow close-ups of what he is doing.

    The backing tracks are fantastic to jam by the side of with (you can download then from the Website too) and the DVD has chord charts that give the fingerings and play the clarification. I wish I had this when I first started out, so if you want to learn the blues and start to know how to improvise solos, this is a fantastic place to start.

    So pleased to play the blues!, June 4, 2007
    This review is from: House of Blues Beginner, Blues Guitar Level 1 (DVD)

    I’ve been culture guitar for about 10 months now, but my culture has lacked focus and jumped from one method to the next, and one genre to the next, tiresome to find something that “clicked”. Like another reviewer, I also have a stack of “Learn to Play Guitar” books about a foot high. But, this is the one the finally “clicked”.

    It not only comes with a CD, but also a DVD, which really makes a difference in my culture – being able to see as well as hear is really vital. Also, not only is the method structured, with previous lessons being drawn upon for subsequent lessons, but right from the first few lessons you can really improvising blues lead lines. (I’m sure it’ll take a bit longer for someone that’s just starting out – you need to have some level of left-hand coordination.) But basically, it’s just the right mix of scheme and “jump-in-get-your-hands-dirty” for me.

    If you reckon blues or blues-rock are what you want to play, you can’t go incorrect with this book/cd/dvd combo. I’m culture so much so quick with level 1 that I can’t wait until I can end it and go on to the level 2 book. It feels as if I’ll be able to jam with the best of them in no time!! (Well, maybe the “sweet-damn-excellent of them” at first…)
