Movie Reviews

Not too shabby!
zydeholic | Albany, CA USA | 11/26/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is one of the more useful instructional dvd's I've seen. He doesn't take whole songs and lay them out note by note. Instead he lays out different chops that can be incorporated into other songs. And blues can be a whole lot of chops, so it works.

I personally like learning components that I can improvise into something I'm doing, rather than learning someone else's rendition of a song note by note.

His sort of smirky demeanor at first made me think he was a bit uncomfortable in his role, but he's an excellent player, and has a feel for the genre.

There is some stuff on here that is accessible to the advanced beginner, but when he starts climbing into second and third position, it left me behind.

I've also ordered his "Chops and Licks" dvd."
This is a great DVD for learning Blues Licks used in Bluegra

"This is a great DVD for learning Blues licks used in Bluegrass. Not for beginners!! This was very helpful in learning blues slide licks."
