The additional materials section has an outstanding tutorial on broken 7th and 9th chords that alone is worth the price of this instructional DVD.
The filming is great, good close ups, you can actually see the cords and strum patterns. If you want to learn more than cords, things like strum patterns and and how to put together a Blues riff, I highly recommend this DVD.
They teach you the basic chord patterns or maybe the easiest of riffs but then at the end, the song is performed in a manner much advanced from what you were taught with no way of picking up the advanced material. You are left with a feeling of frustration and being left out.
I would have rated it 2 stars but in the additional materials section there is an 8 min instructional on 7th and 9th chords that I found very valuable.
If you just picked up the guitar there are better beginning DVD's, if your intermediate in your skills this is going to leave you frustrated. If someone gives it to you don't throw it away.
This is the best dvd of the classic blues in terms of instruction and songs selection, and the only one worthy of purchase. Stay away from vol 2&3, they're neither worth your time nor your money.
For each song, I liked how Dan Warner takes the time to explain how to play each section, it did not feel rushed and was like having a real teacher with me. I enjoyed the final performance with the vocalist.
If only the other two volumes were as good as this one.
Recommended for beginners who want to learn their first blues songs.
