Unorganized instructional part. OK documentary,

By J-i.6HY

from L.A.

Comments about Fret12 Leslie West - The Sound and The Story (DVD):

The DVD is if you just enjoy watching him play & watch a long infomercial for his signature guitar & Budda amps (live, he used Marshalls?hmm). For instructional content, I was VERY disappointed. Don?t expect much guidance or organization for the instructional part. It was poorly directed, unorganized, felt like it was shot in 1 take & Leslie went on tangents & played whatever he felt like. It should've been more planned out. Also, the camera work wasn?t good when he was playing. Given that this is supposed to be a GUITAR instructional DVD, I don't want to see shots of his face every 15 seconds, I'd rather see both of his hands & better angles. Many questions went unanswered. Leslie should?ve talked more about his pedals & effects. Someone should have told Leslie IN ADVANCE to explain his gear in more detail, past & present. At the Dean factory, he said he had a technique for coil hum in the 60s, but said it was a secret. Lame! Also, he said he could get a fat tone out of any amp, but then they cut to another topic without saying how. Show it! I would've liked to see him plug into various cheaper amps & get this tone.

GREAT DVD

By Singlecutter

from Naperville, IL

Comments about Fret12 Leslie West - The Sound and The Story (DVD):

Loved the way the Mark Tremonti DVD was shot so decided to give this one a chance. It was well worth it. Didn't really know much about Leslie before, but I'm glad I do now. "The Story" section of the DVD is worth the price alone.

Great Instructional DVD

By TimLovesBreedlove

from Jamestown

Comments about Fret12 Leslie West - The Sound and The Story (DVD):

What a Great DVD from such an under rated guitar player! Leslie is finally getting the recognition that he deserves and showing his skills and not just some crappy instructional DVD with a guy in front of a curtain the same boring camera shot the whole time. Fret12 really put some thought and effort and really has something going with these higher end instructional and documentary type DVD's. Plus there is a great site to go with thats really awesome. Two thumbs up for this one and the instruction part is awesome!
