Guitar Play-Along Volume 9 – 80s Rock
Apr 12 2014
The Guitar Play-Along DVD series lets you hear and see how to play songs like never before. Just watch, listen and learn! Each song starts with a lesson from a professional guitar teacher. Then, the teacher performs the complete song along with professionally recorded backing tracks. You can choose to turn the guitar off if you want to play along, or leave the guitar in the mix to hear how it should sound. You can also choose from three viewing options. Each DVD includes great songs that all guitarists will want to know!
If you’re an intermediate guitarist who is learning how to build solos and you know the scales but need to know how to weave them together…no better way than to learn from the best, and again, there’s real variety on this disc. The “lessons” aren’t for beginners, you need to know how to play a little. It’s great to see the fingering and the way it’s played, the way notes are bent and slid/pulled etc…way more informative than just looking at a book and listening.
The songs have different and creative (yet common) chord progressions, so you can take what you learn here and spread it around. THE SONGS ARE BASICALLY PLAYED FULL SPEED WITH TAB AT THE BOTTOM, no slowing down and no breaks. The lessons at the beginning of each song show the chord progressions and the scale(s) that the solos are based on (ie, it shows you the Mixolydian scale (mode), and now Cult of Personality makes sense), but after a couple minutes of that it’s 0-60 into the song. If there are a couple songs you dig on any one of these DVDs, grab it and you’ll learn a lot.
