Review is about Buddy Guy: Teachin' the Blues
I almost didn't get this DVD because of the negative review on this site.
Man! I am SO glad I didn't listen to that review and bought it anyway!
I figured it would be worth the price to watch Buddy Guy, even if it wasn't such a good teaching tool, so I ordered it. I was very pleasantly surprised.
First, It DOES come with a booklet of tablature that's tucked right in the clips of the front half of the case.
Now about the DVD; It has a "play" function that lets you just watch it like any other DVD, which may be all that some do. AND, it has a lesson function that lets you play each lesson individually - in either real time or slow motion and still have the right tone and sound to the notes played. In this mode there is also a box on the upper right of the lesson screen that says "loop" for repeating the lessons.
It also has a "tuning" function for getting your guitar tuned properly.
There is more that I haven't explored yet (some of the "special features") But I've seen enough already to know that this will be a very useful learning tool, as well as being good for watching Buddy play.
If you will listen to what he is doing and follow his instruction, there is a ton of useful stuff in this DVD to learn. You just need to stay with it like you would any lesson material. And Buddy tries to encourage you all through the video. He leaves a very good impression.
If I could contact him somehow, I'd say great job Buddy!!
Of course, if you just want to watch it and not take the time to learn, then you can do that too with the "play" function.
