NOTE: This review is for both Volume 1 and volume 2.

Here is a DVD set that I have been waiting for: Music Theory for the guitarist!

It is presented by an experienced professional teacher, Happy Traum. Please see my other reviews of Homespun and Happy Traum's teaching.

This is another in a long series of guitar instruction via DVD. Like the others, it does not disappoint.

The material is Music Theory, and Traum makes no miscalculation of his audience. His teaching is clear, concise, segment by segment, and is for the beginner, as well as the intermediate. The material is presented in a very structured manner, as he builds his foundation slowly.

The teaching is second to none.

As an intermediate guitarist, I was approached by someone who suggested a course on Music Theory to help expand my understanding of the fretboard; and music in general. This is my answer.

A 2 DVD set, each approximately 80 minutes, broken into segments, will provide months of "private lessons". The instructor moves slowly and methodically, yet his enthusiasm and crisp mind lay challenges for the student as the teaching progresses.

In terms of video, it is excellent. Specifically, there are certain things that make the teaching rewarding:

1. Background. With the presentation, the instructor is light hearted yet serious, the background color is black; no distractions. This is useful especially when much time will be spent learning the material. His voice is melodic and his demeanor like a wise professor. No silly costumes, or 'rock star' silly hats, which only draw attention away from the material presented.

2. Close ups. Homespun has perfected its camera work.

I got the 2 dvd version. I am relearning the guitar after being away from it for many years. These dvds offer a very good overview of the mental side of guitar and music theory. T hey were a big help in getting back in the groove. While the first dvd is a comprehensive look at how a guitar functions and where the notes are, the second moves into a look at chords and progressions. While focused on the guitar and its particular demands, it opens the doors to take a look at some of the greater overall garden of guitar music. For beginners and intermediates.
