Hal Leonard

This fantastic 2-hour-long digital video disc shows guitarists how to play the important parts to every song on this influential album. The DVD is hosted and taught by the late Velvert Turner, a student and friend of Jimi's, with demonstrations by ace Hendrix educator Andy Aledort. For each song, the guitar parts are first played slowly, then up to speed to help players learn each riff and solo properly, and there are backing tracks to play along with. As a bonus, this DVD includes actual footage of Jimi playing many of the songs explored and covered. Learn "Purple Haze," "Manic Depression," "Hey Joe," "Love or Confusion," "May This Be Love," "I Don't Live Today," "The Wind Cries Mary," "Fire," "Third Stone from the Sun," "Foxey Lady," "Are You Experienced?" "Stone Free," "51st Anniversary," "Highway Chile," "Can You See Me," "Remember," and "Red House." With the navigational freedom that a DVD provides, you'll easily be able to go right to the lessons of your choice!

You want to know the secrets of how to play like Jimi? Tabs don't cut it and you can't find a good note for note transcription because many of these things are not really transcribable. You have listened to every recording available a million times and know he never plays anything the same way twice. Then you research all the guitars and effects and amps, recording techniques, pictures, interviews and movies available and you are still mystified. Well you are not alone my friend. People study Jimi for a lifetime and still ask ?How did he do that???? I have bought a couple of guitar videos for other artists and they were a little disappointing or misleading. This is the best one I?ve ever seen and the only reason I gave it a 9 instead of 10 stars is it didn?t answer all my questions about what amp and effects settings the person was using and some little parts were left out on how some things were done. Don?t let that bother you. It is very complete. There is a lifetime of learning on this video and the songs and licks are explained and shown to you in fast and in slow motion. In truth you would be lucky to be able to play as well as the instructor let alone Hendrix. If you want to learn Jimi note for note this is as close as you are going to get. It will only reinforce your feeling of why he is considered a genius. Remember the real trick is playing it with feeling. Buy it, you won?t feel ripped off, though perhaps a little humbled. Fall Mountains Just don?t Fall on Me?.Play on.

It sucks. Burn the $ and that will give you more pleasure than the video. There is no tabs at all, and it is hard to go back and rewatch certain portions.

Comments about Hal Leonard Jimi Hendrix - Learn to Play the Songs from Are You Experienced DVD:

If you want to learn how Jimi really played his songs , this is the DVD you want. Unfortunately the individual songs are hard to navigate through. You need to give your remote a workout and fast forward and rewind a lot to catch all the licks and chords. I own other HL DVD that are much easier to use. I'd have appreciated a more detailed walk through of the solos as well. Andy Aledort does a great job of that in his HL Albert King and BB King DVD's. The solos are all played fast and then slow . That's it without further explanation. Very hard to figure out. Tab's would have helped I guess.

Almost Fantastic

By wildchair

from Tucson, AZ

Comments about Hal Leonard Jimi Hendrix - Learn to Play the Songs from Are You Experienced DVD:

This product is a great offering. Only short-coming is it lacks written music and/or tabulature. Demos on the DVD are very well explained and demonstrated, but can be a little hard to follow because of the lack of any accompaning music or tab.

Pretty Good But Expensive.

Comments about Hal Leonard Jimi Hendrix - Learn to Play the Songs from Are You Experienced DVD:

It is a very good video. It's really helpful and slows all the solos down. If you love Jimi Hendrix and want to sound just like him, then BUY IT!!

A necessity for Jimi-philes

By thirdstone123-mTjC7

Comments about Hal Leonard Jimi Hendrix - Learn to Play the Songs from Are You Experienced DVD:

An excellent instructional DVD. Invaluable, but a little pricey. A volume II would be nice to include more songs.

Very well done, easy to follow step by step instructions in an understandable format. It's to bad they don't have these for all of Hendrix's CD's!!

Impressive

Comments about Hal Leonard Jimi Hendrix - Learn to Play the Songs from Are You Experienced DVD:

Jimi is why I have always wanted to play guitar. I never thought it was possible to even get near his playing, but it is with this video. It is well done and presented. If you want tabs, then you have to write them out yourself.
