I've never even held an electric guitar before but life's too short to not do what you always wanted to do and in my case it's play rock guitar so I decided to go for it. I bought a used standard black Fender Strat and then this DVD. I was amazed at how quickly I was playing actual, identifiable songs from some of my favorite rock groups. It was instant gratification.
I also liked how Paul Lidel was so clear and simple in his instructions. He has a very calm and patient demeanor about him. He also is obviously an awesome guitar player, if I could even get half as good as him I'd die happy. I wish he were my guitar teacher for private lessons!
If you've never played electric rock guitar before and can't afford private lessons, this is the best tool for you. Not only is it more encouraging to play actual cool songs instead of practice chords (not that that's not important) it's more fun too!
The lessons themself are nothing special, very serious and straightforward, but the results are nothing short of amazing. In the DVD you learn to play about 20 COOL guitar riffs.
The first time you crank out the intro to the Rolling Stone's "Satisfaction" in front of your friends and family, they will look around to see if you're actually playing it yourself. It's a great feeling, and a great confidence builder for beginners like me.
