Probably more lead than rhythm. Some rhythm though and chords in the tab book that comes with the second one (B&B).Originally posted by tonezoneonline
Thanks for the reply.It sounds like Blues and Beyond is what I'm after but think I may just get them both.
Is there a good mix of lead and rythym techniques on each?
I'm going to have to find that one. That sounds about right for my current ability too. I find Blues and Beyond too advanced right now (although in truth I haven't really spent much time with the Tab book trying to master it).Originally posted by bobbymack
I would recommend Back To The Blues though. It's a two part video that has only recently come out on DVD and can be had on ebay in DVD format for under $30 new. Instruction wise, it's right between the elementary Playin' The Blues and the (for me) pretty advanced Blues and Beyond. Plus, it has some great numbers by The Blue Line recorded specially for the video, and some pretty interesting philosophical stuff from Robben in interview segments...
Back To The Blues is my favorite instructional video of any I have seen. It has it all.
You can still get something out of them, but I highly recommend learning some basic theory. Nothing fancy, but you'll get more out of these videos and anything else you study if you have the basics down. Otherwise, a good amount of what he's saying might not make any sense.If you're an experienced "Neil Young" play-by-ear player who can't read music and doesn't know theory or scales, would they be too hard?
