Editorial Reviews

Jerry Donahue has awed guitarists for years with his jaw-dropping technique and is best known as one third of the revolutionary guitar trio the Hellecasters. The late, great Danny Gatton once referred to him as the string-bending king of the planet. In Country Tech, Jerry shows you the techniques which have earned him the reputation as being one of the world s most respected guitarists. With up-close camera shots and on-screen music graphics, Jerry breaks down his inexplicable style, which incorporates pedal-steel style bends, hybrid picking, and behind-the-nut bends with tasty licks, double stops, glisses, slurs, and soulful vibrato. Also included is a note-for-note transcription of his incredible guitar extravaganza The Break. Special Features: DVD-ROM with formatted for your computer or iPOD; Printable PDF files of music examples from the video.

No doubting Jerry D. is a great guitar player and I like most all of the Don Mock produced instructional material (the content always has integrity) and no doubt I will indeed lift a few things off the DVD, however overall, this isn't one of the more inspired lessons. The pacing is rather slow and at 36 min. it's rather short by any standard.

So 3 stars, "It's just OK", I think that's a fair assessment.

Find it used for 10 dollars and there's no harm picking it up. There is an included PDF file which is the original booklet that came with the VHS tape.

The second of the included songs "Mixed Emotions" is played at full speed then there's the very odd 'Video slowed down to half speed with the audio an octave lower' section that's a blast from our technological past. A creative publisher (negative marks to Alfred here) would have processed the audio (retaining the correct pitch) so you could actually play along -- We have the technology, we can re-build this content -- Instead we get a faithful dub of the original VHS tape. Thus, the half speed section is useless, you can do better using the Playback Speed and Pitch Shift controls with QuickTime or whatever player you may prefer.

To that end however, they did include an iPod encoded .m4v which is a nice touch and saved time since no ripping was required to get this into a format I could practice with -- you guessed it, slowing down the video while retaining all the correct crazy behind the nut bendy pitches.
