Movie Reviews

Completely useless !

"Waste of money, that kind of DVD I could make myself,
and I am only amateur musician. The guy even stated that's not going to show you anything.
I returned it!"
Very disappointed with this DVD.

"I bought Boogie Woogie Piano by Mitch Woods
because there is very little about this style on the market
but I didn't know Mitch Woods at all. I wasn't lucky.
Hoping for some good tips and examples, I got beginner level of samples that kids even would be bored with.
BTW Played not very precisely as somebody would expected.
Also not a one even complete song was presented.
You won't learn anything from that DVD unless you are in kinder garden.
If you want to learn something buy great Dr. John instead."
Chatty, disappointing

"For heart and soul learning to play boogie woogie this DVD has too much commentary that isn't helpful in this directiion. Mr. Woods comes across with an air of quiet, self satisfied arrogance that is off putting - plus a reluctance to his revealing his boogie woogie expertise. A student wants to feel the teacher is enthusiastic about his learning the subject. That feeling isn't here.

To be fair, Woods does carefully demonstrate a number of left and right hand patterns. And there is a booklet of sheet music enclosed. However, from this reviewer's experience, some of the how-to-teach-yourself blues/boogie woogie books WITH A CD are a better value and more fruitful for the learner."
This video is a waste of time

"With all due respect Mitch is a quality player but this video does not showcase that in the least. In fact, the video is a complete waste of time. 99% of the information on here is for complete beginners. There is very little insight in to what makes this style. Most of the information is common knowledge for anybody that's even remotely attempted to play blues. I didn't need a 10 minute conversation in the middle of (60 minutes video) on how a blues progression works. I would imagine if someone is attempting to play boogie woogie they already know how 12 bars blues is constructed.
Here is the worst part for me. I bought this video off of Mitch's site for $35 (with shipping and handling). It's about $20 cheaper on Amazon. I was ripped off. I'm hoping I can prevent others from the same. Skip this video."
