Product Description

What is I Am The Blues Lead Guitarist DVD?
It is a DVD of Blues tracks without the Lead Guitar providing an opportunity for all you burgeoning lead players to blow your pentatonic wad all over the place. Featuring eight different tracks in a variety of different styles to jam along to (slow blues, shuffle, rockin blues and even a bit of a Latin groove), and each track is available in both a traditional song form and as a looped version if you feel like playing until your fingers bleed. The video cues you get from the band make this a really great experience, much more fun than audio tracks alone provide.

How does it work?
Easy, put the DVD in your player, it will take you to the main menu. Tune your guitar with the tuning selection on the DVD. Now, back at the main menu pick the Jam you want to start with, loop or traditional play. Turn up the volume to get a good mix between your amplifier and the band mix. Have fun! The band itself is tight, with Oscar and company laying down rock solid grooves to play over. For players using the DVD to improve their ensemble skills, they'll appreciate the use of visual cues to signal changes in the track, and much like band practice, you'll improve with each repetition. It really beats a computerized backing track any day.

What playing level do you have to be at?
The DVD caters to beginners with a few simple jams to intermediate and beyond with a few of the more up-tempo jams. The only way to get better is to practice and there is no better way to practice than with other musicians.

Where can I find more of these Jam Tracks?
On the web at VODJams. Imagine playing Joe Perry s Guitar Parts in Aerosmith, Piano with Coldplay, or Bass with The Police. This web portal provides videos of live bands in a rehearsal settings with each different video leaving out a key instrument, that you the musician get to play! - with the band. It is in its inception so keep checking back.

Who is the Oscar Jordan Band?
Oscar Jordan and his Blues band are a top outfit from Southern California, they too can be found on the web and have several original albums out.

What extras are on the DVD?
There is also a raft of extra features on the disc including; Tuning, Three Live Blues Songs by Oscar Jordan, Music Videos and other special features.

Review

I Am the Blues Lead Guitarist, hosted by Oscar Jordan, provides an opportunity for all you burgeoning lead players to blow your pentatonic wad all over the place. The surprisingly robust DVD features eight different tracks in a variety of different styles to jam along to (slo blues, shuffle, rockin blues and even a bit of a Latin groove), and each track is available in both a traditional song form and as a looped version if you feel like playing until your fingers bleed.

The band itself is tight, with Oscar and company laying down rock solid grooves to play over. For players using the DVD to improve their ensemble skills, they'll appreciate the use of visual cues to signal changes in the track, and much like band practice, you'll improve with each repetition. It really beats a computerized backing track any day. There s also a raft of extra features on the disc... the concept of the DVD is a novel and useful one. Now you don't need to convince your friends to lug their gear over every week. --Premier Guitar Magazine Sept 07

Great buy. Easy to use, lets you just set up at the TV and switch over to a practice session when the mood hits. The advantage in softwares such as Band In The Box for practice at least for me, has been that you can transpose whatever track you have to any or every key if you feel like it - however the setup overhead to getting everything around the computer that I need to practice is more time comsuming. Just using the DVD on the TV and having these sessions right there makes it not only easy but also fun. The variations are very nice, the latin flavor blues, slow shuffles, or rocking tempos, give you a nice workout. The visual queues from the "band" on the TV screen are great - more realistic then playing off a software lead sheet on a PC screen. It is worth the money and a must have for anyone buying or working on the "learn these licks" or scales instruction books on the blues topic. Takes all the tedium out of learning new licks or even running your scales.

This is an excellent set of blues backing tracks. It includes slow blues, a couple of shuffles, blues in minor key and even a Latin type flavor blues. The tracks are about five minutes long give or take, and you set up your guitar (or harmonica or any other instrument theoretically) and jam. It's that simple. I intend to be jamming to this for a while.

The back up band that plays this is Oscar Jordan and the Mighty Sons of Hercules. This is an actual band that makes recordings and plays in clubs. It's a talented band and a professionally made dvd. In addition to the backgroud tracks there are three live performances of the band.

I have to admit, I purchased this DVD as more of a novelty, and was happily proven wrong. It was a blast, and with much more content and effective instruction than I initially thought. The musicianship of Oscar Jordan and his band is a great inspiration to improve my own skills. The DVD was easy to follow, and production quality is excellent. Highly recommended!

This is a great DVD for someone who wants to play the blues but doesn't have the time to get together with others. These guys make it real easy to get your chops good and improve the standard of your lead playing. It is so easy to use, the tune up section gets you ready and away you go. Everyone who owns a guitar and plays the blues should own this DVD, $20 so cheap for such an important tool.
