Go on Rover, let Jimi take over!By a customer from Northwest ENGLAND , 08 Oct 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Excellent dvd! It doesn't get any easier for budding guitarists wishing to add some of Jimi's songs to their repertoire. All chords, riffs, licks fully explained and slowed down to, for even the beginner to grasp. Can't wait for more of Jimi's tunes analysed on dvd. Recommended.
Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008The DVD shows how Danny Gill plays Hendrix in the same way as your mate would show you, which is basically, 'watch me and copy'. As an actual instructional DVD it is poor as it doesn't give precise details of how to play the songs. Good for an accomplished guitar player, perhaps.
Excellent tuition DVDBy Ani from Brighton, England , 22 Mar 2007I have watched many 'how to play guitar' DVD's, this has to be one of the best. The production is excellent, they have obviously put a lot of time & money into making it, something that lacks from many other guitar tuition DVD's. I'd say this is for the intermediate guitar player, it may frustrate the beginner but as they say practice makes perfect, so stick with it. There are some classic songs to learn here, which when mastered can easily be applied to your own songs or performances.
OutstandingBy Justin from London, England , 03 Jan 2007Ok, if you're a complete novice on the guitar, this DVD is NOT for you. Then again you shouldn't expect to play exactly like Jmi Hendrix (probably the greatest ever electric guitar player) if you just started.
On the other hand if you can already play and you'd like to learn how to get those complex sounding rifts down...this is the DVD for you.
I can't read music and this DVD really worked for me. I already knew really excellent techniques for some songs like 'Hey Joe' but what I learned on this DVD was some of the complex stuff.
For example the intro and solo for 'Little Wing' always alluded me, but now I can play the whole song great...I've even amazed myself. It's a beautiful bit of music. Same goes for the solo and outro for 'Wind Cries Mary'.
There's a lot to take in and I wouldn't expect to have everything down in just one or two hours...the DVD also includes some excellent tips on some tricks Hendrix used to get effects from the Strat...how the pickup configurations work and some performances to play along to.
Really looking forward to checking out the 2nd disk in this series.
Best DVD I've hired so farBy a customer from London, England , 28 Feb 2006Yes - I agree with the these reviews - this DVD is really excellent. Danny Gill is an great demonstrator. He talks a lot, telling you all sorts of little tit bits to help get the songs sounding like Jimi and Danny does a good job of teaching the style of Jimi through these songs. The only small gripe I have is that although his guitar sounds great, he plays the distorted passages with a rather hefty echo effect on board which can muddy the sound just when you want it to be clear (while you're learning at least). But you get used to it and I even grew to like it. This DVD features Danny playing each track from beginning to end, which is useful for when you've learned the song. Danny also demonstrates the strat pickup system and a few neat tricks that Jimi used to get the most out of it.
Danny Gill has to be the best dvd tutor out there !!!!By a customer from Derbyshire uk , 29 Dec 2005As a huge jimmy fan i have learnt many songs in the past But not to this level. Danny patiently takes you through Clearly slowly and in stages that become easy to memorise.If like me you never thought you could master the sound the feel and technique of the wind cries mary including full solo, then be prepared to be amazed as Danny passes it all over to you at your own pace!!! excellent stuff.. thanks Jimi and thanks Danny....
