Movie Reviews

Essential Robert Johnson Techniques.
Charles Kahler | Alameda, CA United States | 04/04/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As always, Rory Block's teaching is clear and easy to follow. This Level 3 lesson is concerned with teaching riffs and slide techniques (in open G and open D tunings) that are used in the music of Robert Johnson. Of the three songs taught, only "If I Had Possession Over
Judgement Day" is taught at great length. The idea isn't so much to learn several songs by Robert Johnson, as it is to learn how Robert Johnson went about playing the guitar. The other two songs taught and performed are "Terraplane Blues" and "Preaching Blues". Rory also delves into how to approach the songs vocally. Well worth the money."

(4 out of 5 stars)

"After playing acoustic and electric guitar for nearly 40 years and deciding to study and learn Mississippi Delta acoustic slide blues, I began searching for instructional videos. Rory Block knows her stuff and in my opinion, is able to effectively present many of the elements any student of this guitar style will need to achieve success. With that said, I find Ms. Block's style a bit more aggresive in certain respects and use the DVD as one piece of the learning process rather than the central part of it. I recommend the DVD highly as part of the process of learning slide guitar."

"I really enjoyed both of theses dvds. I'm fairly new to playing slide but have played guitar for decades. I appreciated the way she works diligently to show exactly what she is doing and why. She doesn't always play exactly what Robert Johnson did and gives her reasons, showing what he actually did do as well. Ms. block certainly knows and loves the music of Robert Johnson and that makes a huge difference."
