Eric Clapton – Acoustic Classics
Apr 28 2014
Guitar master Eric Clapton is one of the world’s favourite guitarists, his music has touched and inspired many lives. This fabulous DVD from the Guitar Signature Licks Series features some of his best known acoustic songs and compositions. Introduced by Doug Boduchof this DVD features a step-by-step breakdown of Clapton’s guitar style and technique, Jam-along songs and practice tips as well as eight classic songs. A must for Clapton fans and anyone wanting to learn solos and songs by one of the greatest guitarists of all time.
The quality of the image is very good and clean. The sound is also great – when Dough Boduch plays the acoustic guitar, he sounds almost as Eric Clapton in the CD/DVD. After presenting part of the music at the regular speed, the instructor breaks it in several parts, then explain and shows part by part of each song at a very low speed (sometimes more then once) in order to make you get to the point.
One interesting section of 15 minutes is dedicated to the techniques used by Eric Clapton and how he uses them: bending, vibrato, pull-off, hammer on, fingerpicking, blues scales and C Minor scale.
One more cool section is the jam along section where the video shows the instructor playing but you can’t hear him. Instead, you can be Eric Clapton for a day and play the acoustic parts of the song in a Acoustic Guitar Karaoke.
An excellent instructional video, specially for those who are Eric Clapton fans and who already have a knowledge in playng the acoustic guitar.
