I wish I had found this DVD in 1996 when it came out. I sold my electric in 1993, basically discouraged that I didn't have time for things like rock guitar, which basically requires a band. So I kept my classical guitar and occasionally take it out and learn a new piece. If you want to guage your situation with mine in considering this as a purchase, I'd say I am an intermediate amateur - know a lot of classical and just dabble in rock/folk. My goal right now is to learn some blues, jazz, and rock well enough for some for-fun light gigging and to be able to improvise a bit.

I loved this DVD. It really hit the spot for me and filled in some gaps. For me, it skipped all the basic stuff I already know and provided just the right level of detail. I love the on screen tab, the camera angles on Wyatt's left hand, and the rythm section that lets you play with the band. The DVD is easy to navigate, I just rev up the sections I want to work on and practice right along. I'd say this DVD was worth about 10 guitar lessons, easily (at least the bozo I was working with would try to chat the whole time, show me one tiny song or riff that I could have looked up on the web, and refuse to record or write anything down). With a well-mdae DVD There's no problem remembering what was taught, or problems figuring out what's going on. When the camera angle isn't clear enough, the book with the tablature is right there.

I don't know what else to say. I bought a new electric and I'm just having a blast again with guitar, the blues, et cetera, and I really enjoyed the DVD. I wish Kieth would publish a sequel "steps 3 and 4"! Thanks Kieth, you made my musical life a little brighter and at a great price!

I found Kieth Wyatt's DVD informative as well as entertaining. The manner with which he instructs is specific and to the point. As a musician as well as a teacher, he is very relaxed, almost encouraging. He breaks down every facet of playing blues into precise instructions. He explains what he's about to do then he does it.
I think that the added feature of having the band tracks available is ideal in that you can apply what you've learned by playing along with it. I'd recommend this to anyone who'd want to start playing, or if they play already, play better.
The only question that comes to mind is, "Why havn't I done this sooner?"

With a title like "Ultimate Beginner Series" he assume way too much. He is very good and I have other DVD's by Keith. I just wish they would show you the cords in a box like the other DVD's in this series. In this one you are stuck looking at his hands trying to figure out what to play

Lots of material for both rhythm and lead presented very well. Good camera angles, pretty good sound, and an impressive amount of material is covered. Definitely worth the dough!

Lose the mullet Keith!

I was a new blues guitarist when I purchased this DVD. The examples are great, with good explanations and close ups. Keith's teaching style is also easy to follow. He is well spoken and enjoyable to listen to. There are a lot of great easy licks on this DVD that will get you learning the blues.

Very entertaining video that dives into different ways to flavor rhythm guitar during a 12-bar progression. He shows you how to add a 9th chord to spice up the turn-around. He also demonstrates some mini-chord fills on the D G B and high E strings you can substitute for dominant 7th bar chords and 5th chords during a I- IV-V progression. During the "slow blues" section he shows you how to use the T Bone Walker 6th chord during a slow blues I-IV-V groove. Sorry, but little attention or instruction is dedicated to lead playing. He maps out the minor pentatonic scale and a couple extensions and "houses" you can play in the higher registers...but this is not a library of blues licks. He teaches a few licks doing a call-response where he plays an easy lick and you copy it. The lead and soloing sections are pretty much left to you where you "Play with the band!" and figure things out on your own. This is not for an outright beginner as some of the chord variations, fingerings, and fills are tricky at first...but this video really helped my rhythm and chord chops...and helped me make the 12-bar I-IV-V progression much more interesting sounding. All in all, an excellent video that any guitarist should have in their instructional library. Keith Wyatt is an excellent instructor who is also a monster player.
