Comprehensive Guitar Instruction (DVD)

Comprehensive Guitar Instruction by Charlotte Adams is a unique guitar instructional video, designed for the guitar player who wants to acquire information that will open the doors to indefinite growth and knowledge of the guitar, regardless of style. Unlike the typical guitar instruction video, it is a course of study rather than a single guitar lesson. You will find it most effective if you work with it for months or even years, returning frequently as you advance as a guitarist, and depending on it to provide the knowledge required to become a confident, creative, and masterful guitar player.

The DVD covers accompaniment styles and rhythm playing, lead playing, ear training, right hand technique (both fingerpicking and flatpicking), and left hand technique. In addition, you will learn how to construct, play and use scales for riffs and leads. And, by giving you just the music theory that guitar players need, I am able to reveal the secret to soloing over changing harmonies.

I divided this instructional video into sections, which I intend for you to study separately and expand upon indefinitely. Within these sections, I provide tips and exercises to enable even a novice guitar player to quickly learn the guitar fretboard and to develop creativity as well as technique.

Most importantly, I tell you not only what to learn, but how to learn it. I have spent over thirty years developing methods to make learning the guitar straightforward and efficient, and I share these methods with you in Comprehensive Guitar Instruction. An entire section of the video id devoted to learning tactics, including memorization skills, visualization, and use of the internal ear.

For less than the price of a single guitar lesson, you will get to see “the big picture” of the musical puzzle in the first viewing. (When you know where you are going, it’s a lot easier to get there!) Subsequent viewings and in-depth study will enable you to delve into and expand upon each piece of the puzzle in the order that suits your personal needs and sensibilities.
