GUEST,Vixen @ work Guitar as a Rhythm Instrument (35) RE: Guitar as a Rhythm Instrument 23 Nov 04


A propos of video instruction...I bought the Steve Kaufman Bluegrass Rhythm Guitar tape because several musicians I know recommended it as a good beginner's rhythm guitar lesson. With all due respect to him and to Homespun Videos, it goes way too fast for me to "get it". I rewind and replay and rewind and replay and rewind and replay and rewind and replay and rewind and replay and...you get the idea. I still don't "get it." Half an hour with Reynaud explaining what the tape segment is showing me, and I've "got it" enough to start practicing it.

I do wonder how many folks have had similar experiences with instructional videos. My experience made me very reluctant to buy another one.

I agree with the nice heavy flatpick, though--I use a cow horn pick that I'm quite thoroughly attached to!
