Finally got my own Solo Blues Box Set and I thought I'd do a review here
First off, the picture quality is very impressive -- the strings are very visible and the sound is very clear, no muffling or anything.
The instruction from Justin is the kicker as always and it's very, very
good. He slows down the techniques and even has "play-along" sections for each of the pieces that come in slow, medium and at tempo speeds, which are probably the aspect that blew my mind the most. There's simply no reason not
to be able to play the songs.
Another great thing is that Justin often offers invaluable advice on how to practice and nail each section of each piece, quite a ways off from the usual 'hey,here it is slow and now here it is fast, so just practice that okay?' type of instruction from most other guitar lesson DVDs. He gives genuinely helpful advice for problem areas that might be encountered by the viewer and addresses them in a very clear manner.
The songs themselves are great fun to play and a great addition to the repertoire, especially for people who want to get more comfortable with playing fingerstyle. Plus, they sound pretty darned cool as well
The addition of the tabs is just the icing on the cake, although I personally don't need them just because most everything is already very well explained in the videos. Still, it means I can always look at them in case I forget a part, without having to load up the video.
I give this DVD series a perfect 5/5 score. I can't wait to get the RUST series as well as MMS soon
Well done, Justin, Jedi and everyone who helped!
