Leslie West – Big Phat Ass Guitar
Jun 25 2014
Take a private guitar lesson from Leslie West, the master guitar player from Mountain and West, Bruce & Laing. Get all the tips you need from the guy who knows how to play them. For almost 40 years Leslie West has been one of rock’s greatest guitar players recording massively successful albums and playing to literally millions of people at concerts all over the world.
In this DVD Leslie West shows the viewer his innovative approach to playing rock guitar, techniques on capturing that special tone, recording and playing tips and hints on performing live. Guitar virtuoso Leslie West offers viewers a one-on-one music lesson in this instructional release, presenting all of the tips and techniques he uses to create his unique rock sound.
A very entertaining DVD, although not an instructional DVD in the classical sense.This is far more organic, and much more like how it is amongst electric guitarists when they swap playing tips with one another. Leslie West tells the viewer how to make the most out of the gifts of ability each guitar player is provided with. His approach to the guitar is one that many a young player should take a look at.
If you can play, and you like Leslie West, you’ll enjoy this DVD. You’re not going to learn to play the guitar using this Video. He stresses “Tone is everything” and basically that’s true. You don’t have to be the best player in the world, but with great tone, you can do just fine. There is some cool stuff where he goes over the Amps and Effects he uses, and I love his humor! He tells you how he gets as much as possible playing the Pentatonic and Blues Scale. I got a kick out of one of his lines “Fenders are good on cars”. He’s always been a diehard Gibson guy, although I have seen him using Steinbergers, and Dean Guitars. He plays “Mississippi Queen”, and “Theme” slowly, so you can see what he’s doing.
