"This DVD isn't very informative. What he teaches he teaches fairly well, but he doesnt teach you much. You can play all the riffs he teaches you and you still won't know how to play guitar. The other amazon reviews are obviously writen by the makers of the product as they are actually listed on the back of the dvd. What kind of DVD lists customer reviews from amazon on their product. Aside from that they sound pretty bogus."
Wow, look at me, I'm playing guitar!

"I think all the reviews speak for themselves, so I'm just adding more praise on top of the other people's praise for this DVD. I've never even held an electric guitar before but life's too short to not do what you always wanted to do and in my case it's play rock guitar so I decided to go for it. I bought a used standard black Fender Strat and then this DVD. I was amazed at how quickly I was playing actual, identifiable songs from some of my favorite rock groups. It was instant gratification. I also liked how Paul Lidel was so clear and simple in his instructions. He has a very calm and patient demeanor about him. He also is obviously an awesome guitar player, if I could even get half as good as him I'd die happy. I wish he were my guitar teacher for private lessons! If you've never played electric rock guitar before and can't afford private lessons, this is the best tool for you. Not only is it more encouraging to play actual cool songs instead of practice chords (not that that's not important) it's more fun too!"
Don't give up yet!

"At 45, and not being musically inclined, but always having wanted to learn to play guitar, I bought my first guitar & amp. After trying to play with my music store's DVD for two weeks I was about to give up. Then, I saw Paul's Beginning Rock Guitar DVD and thought I'd give it one more chance. What a life saver! Paul must be one of the best guitar teachers out there. This DVD totally rekindeled my interest, has me playing again on a regular basis and has me making plans to buy a better guitar. Now I know I can do this. Thanks Paul, you're awesome! Rock on!"
