Movie Reviews

Great lesson
Steve Lawsongatch | cincinnati,oh usa | 02/24/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I found this to be a great guitar lesson. It is great for the beginner or the intermediate player who wants to learn Spanish guitar style. Esteban makes it clear and simple. There are a few aspects he presents, namely some freeform techniques, that I wouldn't recommend for the absolute beginner as it may seem confusing at first but its nice that they are included in the lesson so you have a another level to study after you learn the more basic techniques. Esteban demonstrates the playing methods very clearly and I was actually able to play Malagunea almost immediately, which says a lot. I cannot emphasize how clearly explanatory this lesson is. I was very happy with it. This is one of the better instructional lessons I have seen. It is relatively comprehensive yet simple considering that it is a somewhat more complicated style. Esteban is a great teacher and that makes all the difference. I highly recommend this study course."
Nice package

"I have been using this instruction for about a month as a beginner. I really enjoy it. It comes with a nice ringbound book, which has easy to follow instructions for playing each song. It also has the music and tab. There are a few small errors in the book, but easy to spot and remedy.
The dvd instruction is excellent.
This course gets you right into playing music, which is a great motivation to keep going in the early learning stages when your fingers are not used to fretting chords and the progress seems slow.
I am using this as a core to my learning, but also recommend a book or two on learning the guitar; to supplement this nice package. This course is designed to get you right into playing, but other beginner books can add depth to your study of the guitar."
Esteban is excellent

"I don't have this particular one, but I have the 5 dvd set that came with master class package. I own over a dozen other learn guitar dvds and Esteban is by far the best. I'm very new (been playing almost 6 months) and have gotten so much better then what I was in just the month i've owned the dvd's. His exercises for running scales and his picking technique put me miles ahead of where I was. When I started playing, one of the songs I really wanted to learn how to do was Yes "meet all good people" and have been failing miserably at it since the beginning. Last night I actually got through it for the first time! Still had a few problems changing cords (but hey I'm new) picking the beginning however was flawless using the techniques I learned from Esteban. I haven't sat down and practiced with a few friends that play in about a month, but the next time I do these guys are gonna freak out. The progess i've made with this technique is really great. Considering some of the othere dvd's i've purchased got 4 and 5 stars in review. Esteban deserves a much higher rateing. This guy far outclasses them by a wide margin."
Very pleased!

"I am a TOTAL beginner and have tried to learn using another guidebook and dvd. I learned more from this DVD in 5 minutes than I did in several chapters of the other instructional book and DVD. He has an easy going style that makes learning from him easy and he teaches you the basics you need to know to get started actually playing. It was exactly what I hoped for since I am a visual learner. I felt discouraged from the other book/DVD, but not with this one. Now I'm just waiting to develop the lovely callouses I so dearly need so practicing will be more comfortable. I love Spanish classical guitar music so I am an eager student to learn this style of guitar."
