Solid Choice

Comments about Hal Leonard Metal Guitar Beginner DVD:

This is a great beginners learning tool. The DVD explains each exercise fully and the booklet can be used in it's place once one becomes familiar with the material. There are a few flaws in the booklet, namely in the "Reading Chord Charts" section it states how to read the chord diagram but it is explained backwards. The first vertical line on the far left of the chart represents the sixth string or thickest, not the first string or thinnest. Also, in the "Minor Pentatonic Scales" section in the "Key of A, Second Position" the tab is listed correctly on the way down but on the way up it is misprinted. On the fourth and fifth strings the tab should read 10-7 instead of 9-7 so the tabs match on each side. This DVD comes with membership to rockhousemethod.com where additional tools are offered. The backing tracks to many exercises are available to download from the site. To me the backing track for "The Gallop" does not match the tab listed in the booklet, so be prepared to improvise. With these few flaws set aside, this is a solid product.

Comments about Hal Leonard Metal Guitar Beginner DVD:

This is another great Rock House product. If you're looking to learn to play some Hard Rock/Metal guitar, then you've come to the right place. John McCarthy provides easy to understand lessons that build on each other all the while cover basic techniques needed to play this style of guitar. The onscreen instruction is easy to follow. The included booklet helps you visualize the material from a second perspective. The ability to replay the lessons over and over until I was comfortable with moving on has been an invaluable experience for me. I took my time going through the disk and couldn't be happier with the results!This title is very similar to the Beginner Rock Guitar DVD. There are some differences tuned more towards faster playing exercises. So if you're trying to decide which one to get, think about what style of music you want to play most.
