Movie Reviews

One of the very best 60's rockers revealed
Charles A. Cooper | Jacksonville, Florida USA | 03/18/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Dave Mason was one of the best musicians and songwriters produced by the sixties era of music. In addition to his great songwriting and vocals with traffic I was always impressed by his very straightforward guitar style. For the first time this DVD gives real insight into his seemingly effortless guitar style. Prompted by a young musician who is knowledgeable about Daves music, Dave reveals open tunings he learned from Stephen Stills, rhythm phrases and lead parts to each of the four tunes in this lesson. Dave is forthright and forthcoming, the interviewer asks just the right questions, and there are lots of amusing anecdotes by Dave. This is a very good guitar lesson if you are interested in this era of music and desire insight into how some of its best songs were put together."
Lessons From a Guitar Legend
Tim Orlando | California | 03/04/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What a treat -- sixty minutes of lessons from one of the greatest guitarists of all time. This DVD covers all of the essential licks for playing Only You Know and I Know; Look at You, Look at Me; You Shouldn't Have Took More Than You Gave; and We Just Disagree. Since guitar instruction doesn't seem to come natural to Mason, an emcee accompanies him, coaxing Dave for those nuggets of detail about each song. It's an arrangement that works well. Mason politely complies with every request to "play that lick again" or "play it slowly." In addition, the DVD includes clips of Mason and his band playing live in concert. If you're a guitar player and, in particular, a Dave Mason fan, you'll want to own this DVD."

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This dvd is wonderful. It is of Dave being prodded to give up his licks and methods. When he continually replies, "I don't know what I did, I just do it", and then asks his assistant to tell him what it was that he did, it is just fabulous. The songs he goes over are from his solo career. A little disappointing that he doesn't show some of his "Traffic" magic. Maybe for legal reasons, maybe he doesn't want to haggle with Winwood and Capaldi. When he confides that he got this from Stills, and this from Lennon, you are getting an inside look at one of the true survivors."
Dave Mason: Under-rated in every way
MR. D | 04/17/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"All those fans that are lucky enough to know about the talents of Dave Mason, don't need to read this review. If you have ever been fortunate enough to see Dave in concert, you know what I'm talking about. Not only does this dvd include some great secrets for guitarist, there's also some really good concert footage included here."
