Perfect for guitar players who are just starting out. Volume 1 of the Monster Guitar Method shows you how to find any note on the fretboard without the use of a chart. It also covers the major and minor scales, the minor pentatonic and blues scales, basic and "bonus" chords (major, minor, dominant 7th, power chords), rhythmic notation, strumming patterns, and much more. Also comes with an instructional booklet and a jam-along CD to practice the lessons from the DVD.
This DVD series is designed so that you can get the most complete guitar lessons possible. There's a little bit of everything in here so you will be a well-rounded guitar player and musician. You will learn to be self-sufficient and independent. You will get the tools that will allow you to be creative. You want to just learn some fun stuff and be able to strum some chords? You got it. Maybe you are already a good player and want to get an edge and step up to the next level. You got it. You want access to one of L.A.'s most in-demand guitar teachers, but you want him to come to you when it's convenient for you? You got it. These lessons will get you from day one to being able to jam with a band or start your own. From knowing nothing about music, to being able to analyze your favorite songs and gain insight and knowledge into your favorite artists style that only highly skilled musicians would know. It will serve as a video encyclopedia of information, tips, techniques, and styles that you will come back to again and again.
Choose your guitar lesson, learn from the DVD then jam along to the CD tracks that are specific for the lesson you just learned. Also includes full online support. Email the teacher with questions, connect with other players on the message boards or live chat.
This series gives you the knowledge of a seasoned professional. Chords, scales and licks are here, and they show you where they come from and how to use them in different keys, how to use the theory for songwriting and much more. It's like attending music school, but much cooler.

Comments about Alfred Monster Guitar Method Vol. 1 Dvd/Cd Set:
The green Monster Guitar Method #1 is a great DVD for the beginner. Work hard and you WILL learn your scales, chords, rhythm, and a good deal of how to get started on the guitar. Unfortunately, while the DVD is very good, the extremely small printed manual is too small to be of any real use.
