    This review is from: The Acoustic Guitar Method (DVD)

    This two disc set is like a complete 6 month course in guitar. For the price of, perhaps, a single lesson, you get what amounts to 6 months of lessons from a low-key, amusing, and talented teacher.
    The first disc is useful for those just starting out. If you do not know how to play chords, learn a chord, turn off the DVD (even after only 15 minutes) and practice. In a few days of practicing, turn the DVD back on and go for ‘lesson 2″, or the next chord.

    If you are, like me, someone who has been playing for a minute and is self-taught, take the entire course. Do not skip much in disc 1 even though disc 2 is more appealing. Get the basic strums, bass patterns, etc. Find out, like me, if you have “holes” in your guitar education and fill them. In other words, use this wonderful 2 DVD set to build a solid foundation, and then, after mastering Disc 2, go on to other Homespun DVD’s, expanding your education, while culture to play songs.

    This is what most excites me: I get to firm up my foundation, learn techniques, but also learn songs as I go by the side of. After all, it is the songs that we delight in playing the most.

    In this set, you get all 3.

    I bought this in combination with the Acoustic Guitar Method books. I find that this video is so much simpler to follow than others that I have tried. David Hamburger teaches in a very laid back and simple going manner, and the songs that I have learned so far are fun to play. I like to watch the videos and then use the books to compliment what I have learned visually through the videos. I am pleased to say that my guitar playing technique is progressing well considering that I have no instructor other than David Hamburger on the video. I highly recommend this DVD!

    This review is from: The Acoustic Guitar Method (DVD)

    I connected with this video and its laid-back host from the moment I heard the opening bars of the tune he plays for the menu page. (“Bars” is a term he helpfully clarifies ahead of schedule on for the benefit of those whose knowledge of music is sketchy.)That was EXACTLY the way I wanted to play the guitar! – as opposed to how I’ve played ever since my institution days all through the heyday of the ’60s folk/blues revival, i.e., artlessly banging on strings while holding down various cords, hopefully one at time. My knowledge of a few basic cords did give me a bit of a leg up; on the other hand I chose to follow every step of his curriculum so as not to miss anything, and sure enough I usually found at a minimum something new to me or a better way of doing something, like a different way of holding down “G”, or subtle hints about holding the pick. Hamburger’s simple lesson plans strike me as something a total beginner would be able to easily follow. It’s fun playing by the side of with him and generally enjoying his company, even if only virtually. I haven’t even finished it yet, and already it’s revolutionized my playing.
