The negative ratings by the two Americans don't have anything to do with the quality of the product reviewed here.
They are just frustrated with the fact that they didn't bother to look before they leapt.
It states clearly that SRV's guitar parts are broken down here by an instructor and it says nowhere that this is a concert or that SRV is doing the teaching.
So forget these dumbhead reviews.
I have the other DVD in the SRV series by Greg Koch and I couldn't believe how well he nails SRV's style and, more importantly, how well he can convey his wisdom to the student of Stevie Ray's style.
THERE SIMPLY IS NO BETTER INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIAL ON SRV THAN THESE TWO DVD'S!!
If you have any interest in learning blues guitar and SRV in particular than you can't get anything better than this.
'SRV isn't in this video'?? Hellooo???
The session is hosted by Greg Koch, who has a well earned reputation in the guitarworld as a wonderful instructor and great player.
In his demonstrations and explainations, Koch clearly shows that he possesses the necessary in-depth understanding of the guitar style of Stevie Ray Vaughan, aswell as the ability to communicate this knowledge in an easy to understand, relaxed way.
I've seen a lot of instructional dvd's. This one ranks in the top ten of my personal list of valuable instructionals.
I bought this dvd and the other one by Greg Koch (Guitar Signature Licks: Stevie Ray Vaughan's Greatest Hits) because I'm a guitar teacher myself, but was not well versed in the art of blues guitar playing.
These dvd's hyped up my learning curve incredibly. It's a speed course for anyone who wants quick insight in how SRV did what he did.
Koch presents all materials in a way that makes it very easy to take what you need and incorporate it into your own playing immediately. Highly recommended, 5 stars.
I.E. "....I'm very disappointed b/c Stevie isn't teaching on the DVD; ... dude I thought this was a SRV instructional video..." then I suggest you go and re-learn some of the basic facts about modern DVD technology.
Although DVD technology was implemented as early as mid 1992, the consortium of DVD technological companies didn't agree on a specific DVD standard until early 1995, and thus the trickle of DVD media being mass released wasn't until much later in 1997.
How would SRV have been on the DVD unless it was re-mastered from a reel to reel, or VHS style recording??
-Enough of that-
Anyway, Greg Koch is by far the best "blues" instructor I have seen. By proxy, he nails the SRV style instructional video. I have heard, and seen many SRV fanatics, live and on a personal level, Greg takes the cake not only with his playing, but his tone and knowledge of musical styles. His ability to teach, analyze, and slow down the music makes it digestible for any intermediate or better player.
Saying this, don't expect to nail SRV's songs overnight b/c of a DVD lesson. It takes years of playing, years of listening, and an overall blues ear and style to be ready to play and understand his (SRV's) music, even with the aide of these lessons.
Thanks for the great work and "...keep em' coming" Greg!!
However, I will say, if you lack experience this may not be for you. If the viewer does not have a good understanding of guitar already, this will likely be very difficult. There were no tabs with my copy so you are pretty much on your own. It is in my opinion, geared to the more advanced player. If you play this will definitely sharpen your skills!
