A good purchase for intermediate players, but I could see an absolute beginner struggling with this DVD.
If, like me, you are relatively new to lead guitar and have difficulty reading complicated tablature, this DVD is good for studying the tutor's technique. The good news is, the tab appears on the screen as the tutor plays along. The bad news is, the tab on the screen is different to the one supplied in the complimentary booklet. This can be confusing, and I will give you this advice- DO NOT BUY THIS DVD UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO PUT TIME AND EFFORT INTO FIGURING OUT HOW TO PLAY THE SONG!
The 10 minute series is good as a starting point for willing learners, but it doesn't hand you the techniques on a plate. The information sometimes isn't broken down quite as slowly or in-depth as I'd have liked, meaning that I was often left to use my own 'trial and error' technique. But hey, it's 10 minutes and £3.99. So is it Worth it? I say YES
P.S. Don't forget that there is also a 10 minute tab guide for those (like me) struggling with tab. Anonymous
