DVDs / Videos | Guitar

Publisher: Hal Leonard
Format: Books | Instrumental Tutor
On this dynamic DVD, Troy Dexter plays examples in the style of such rockabilly greats as Scotty Moore, Carl Perkins, Brian Setzer, Eddie Cochran and Duane Eddy. He demonstrates effects devices (tremolo, echo, reverb and distortion) and how they were used by each player.

Troy also shows chord voicings and application, and the scales inherent in rockabilly. He gives examples of thirds and fifths, intervals, whole-tone licks, chromatic lead-ins, horn stab riffs, chord raking, vibrato bar techniques, bends, slides, shuffle rhythms and more. The accompanying booklet comes complete with easy-to-follow notation and diagrams that correspond exactly to the DVD.

          The DVD is alright, and Troy is a competent player, but the accompanying book, whilst small is more help than watching the DVD. Frankly this could have been presented in an audio CD format and you wouldn't notice the difference. The main issue I have about this DVD is that it's not really Rockabilly guitar; I bought this DVD thinking it would give me some idea about rockabilly style fingerpicking, but the entire DVD is played with a plectrum, despite the fact that most of the artists Troy mentions fingerpick, If anything this is more geared towards surf-rock. I was disappointed with this DVD, poor tuition (if you can even call it tuition), the only redeeming factor was the book that came with chord diagrams, but that's not what you buy a DVD for is it? Oh, and editing suites can do a lot more these days, so how about leaving out the cheesy screenwipes between scenes?
