Curt Mitchell is a horrible teacher.He plays the lick for you, but does nothing to explain how to play it (by telling you the notes that are played, the scales, key signatures, or any of the concepts involved). You have to figure it out by watching his fingers, but half the time you can't even tell which note he is playing because the other fingers of his hand are covering up and obscuring the ones that are actually fretting the notes, plus you can?t see the picking hand at the same time to tell at least which string is being played. You would honestly be better off by either watching a video of Hendrix himself, or downloading the tablature off the internet and working it out on your own. That reminds me, there is not tablature included to accompany the video (unlike in other instructional videos I've seen).Curt Mitchell can obviously play the licks with great accuracy, but as far as getting across to the viewer how to do it, it is a very poor job overall. not at all what one would expect from a ?teacher?.
It's an ok video, you learn some cool licks,I still haven't leaned the licks correctly,altough I leared a few imprtant techniqus like usion bends and he showed some cool chords,I gave this to afriend after I soaked up the info,but I feel the way curt taught the lesson was very inadiquate,it should have deen longer and more than just intro riffs would have been beeter too.
To understand his style and even get a look at tone ideas and effects. Curt Mitchel does an excelent job of playing the riffs. This guy is really good. These are very good for begginners. A santana video is what I first learned with. It's a good buy if you want to get more in depth to Jimi's playing.
Definitely not for beginners. True beginners need to leave it on the shelf. Curt Miller can definitely play, but like most talented people, he lacks in teaching what comes naturally to him, and what his expierience has taught him. The Tabs, that came inside my box, are cheap shrunken down photo copies of hand written tabs. I blew them up with a copier to make them readable. No big deal. The tape shows full speed versions of both hands going with no detail, the slowed down versions only shows the fret hand in detail. They did a split screen segment to show Curt toggling the pickup switch for an effect, it was kind of pointless at the most pointless lesson in the video. If they had this capability for that simple effect, why didn't they show the picking hand in unison with the fret hand through all of the riffs? speaking of riffs, if this video does one thing right, the content is outstanding, perhaps the only thing right for a learner's video. Oh the riffs are sweet! And to all these video instructors : use a light colored pick so we can see the damn thing.
I love the way that Jimi plays the guitar. I also love his music and this is a good way to learn how to play many of his greatest hits.
