Learning how to play the guitar can seem like a daunting task. There are so many different things to learn and practice. You need high-quality, step-by-step video instruction that takes you from beginner or intermediate all the way through advanced guitar instruction.

Includes the following:

Acoustic Guitar Lesson DVD DVD Demonstration:  Each guitar lesson is clearly explained and demonstrated, so you know exactly what and how to practice. The videos were recently awarded two bronze Telly awards for excellence in the categories of Education and Use of Music.


Acoustic Guitar LessonsPrinted Materials: The workbook contains all of the songs and exercises demonstrated in the video lessons, as well as several more, so you can continue practicing at your own pace for as long as you need before moving on to the next lesson.



Acoustic Guitar LessonsJam-Along CDs: Jam along with an actual band, using the same songs you learn in your lessons. There’s no better way to learn than by playing, and there’s no way to play that’s more fun than jamming with a band. You’ll be amazed at how much more fun this makes practicing!


Acoustic Guitar LessonsProfessional Instruction: Steve Krenz has been playing professionally for twenty years. He is an incredibly talented teacher and communicator. You won’t find a better guitar dvd instructor anywhere.

Yngwie Malmsteen Dvd Guitar Lessons

Yngwie Malmsteen was largely responsible for the development of the style of guitar playing known as "shredding" that was so popular in the 1980’s. Shred guitar solos are lightning fast riffs that depend more on their speed than their musicality to enhance a song. Guitar enthusiasts have admired and respected the musicians who could produce such breathtaking licks, and Yngwie Malmsteen is always mentioned as one of the best.

In his early years, Malmsteen joined several rock bands around Stockholm. I didn’t take long before he became frustrated with their lack of willingness to take musical risks. Audiences that seemed to prefer lightweight pop sounds to the hard rock songs filled with instrumental solos that he enjoyed also disillusioned him. He made a demo tape which he distributed to as many record companies outside of his home country as he could find. Finally, the founder of California-based Shrapnel Music, Mike Varney, heard his efforts. Yngwie was invited to record with a new band in the US called Steeler, and he was on the road to fame as a guitar shredder.

Steeler released a self-titled album in 1983, which grabbed some attention because of Malmsteen’s frenetic guitar solos. He was not happy with the quality of the other musicians in the group, however, and soon joined a band called Alcatrazz. The new group released an album (No Parole for Rock and Roll) and played a concert tour. Still dissatisfied, Yngwie decided that he would have more artistic license if he became the leader of his own band. In 1984 he gathered some musicians to form the group Rising Force, which included his friend from Sweden, Jens Johansson on keyboards.

The album Rising Force was first released in Japan and created such a buzz that it was soon distributed around the globe. It was nominated for a Grammy and hit the Billboard Top 60. More importantly, it set the standard for an instrumental guitar album and single-handedly originated the “Neo Classical Metal” genre of music. It remains one of the best selling instrumental albums ever produced.

The group released Marching Out and Trilogy in rapid succession and both were well received. The two albums were not only demonstrations of Malmsteen’s skill as a guitarist, but established his reputation as a composer, as well. In 1987, however, he nearly lost his life when he crashed his fast moving Jaguar into a tree. He developed a blood clot in his brain, which could have been fatal, and he was in a coma for seven days. He also sustained significant nerve damage in his right hand that left it virtually paralyzed. To add to the trauma, he regained consciousness to discover that his mother had died. He was determined to persevere, however, and worked diligently to recover the use of his hand and regain his health.

With the release of Odyssey in 1988, the music world realized that Malmsteen was truly back at work. It was his most commercially successful album, especially the single “Heaven Tonight.” He took his band on a worldwide tour and the group had the honor of being one of the first groups to play in the former Soviet Union. Late that year Fender released the first Malmsteen signature Stratocaster. During the early 90’s, a string of albums came from Yngwie’s fertile mind and talented fingers including Fire and Ice, Eclipse, and The Seventh Sign.

In 1997 Yngwie proved to the world that he is much more than just a shredder. He wrote and recorded a completely classical work that he considers his masterpiece. With the lofty title Concerto Suite for Electric Guitar and Orchestra in Eb Minor Op. 1, the album pleased critics and serious musicians around the globe. It was recorded with the highly acclaimed orchestra from Prague, the Czech Philharmonic and its famous conductor Yoel Levi. A few years later, Malmsteen was invited to perform the work before a live audience in Tokyo with the New Japan Philharmonic Orchestra. The DVD recording of the concert was released in 2002.

The next year, many guitar fans rushed to attend the concerts in the famous G3 series which featured the three men most aficionados considered to be the Dream Team of guitarists: Malmsteen, Steve Vai, and Joe Satriani. The audio CD’s and DVD releases of the live concerts were instant best sellers in 2003.

Yngwie has continued to tour and record music throughout the decade of the ‘00’s. In ’07 he was featured on the popular video game “Guitar Hero II” (X-box Version). Players of the game can achieve the “Yngwie Malmsteen Award” as a bonus if they can accurately hit at least 1000 notes in a row.

With all his flamboyant showmanship and incredible skill on the guitar, Yngwie continues to impress audiences in the US, Europe and Asia. He is a truly creative musician who has managed to successfully combine two very different forms of music into one completely original style. The world will probably not see another guitarist like Yngwie, but he has made, and will continue to make his mark on the modern music scene.

Overall Rating:

Learn and Master Guitar


Gibson’s Learn and Master Guitar is a complete set of dvd guitar lessons developed to teach you how to play the guitar. Gibson’s Learn and Master Guitar contains 20 Dvds, 5 Jam Along CDs, the Learn and Master Lesson Book, and Unlimited Access to the Student Support Site. Professional instruction provided by Steve Krenz.

This is an excellent program for the beginner. The dvd guitar lessons start with the parts of the guitar, names of the strings, and proper right and left hand technique. Tuning, how to read tab, and chords are covered next. On screen examples are provided. Lessons are also supplied via the Learn and Master lesson book. This book contains diagrams of everything covered on the dvd. This enables you to watch the video and follow along with the book or even refer back to the book when you don’t have access to the lesson. 

I have found Steve to be a terrific instructor. He is very patient and very encouraging. Everything is explained thoroughly. He even quizzes you on what he teaches during the lesson to help you remember the lesson. At the end of each lesson are tips and assignments. There is also a "Bonus Workshop" where Steve recaps the lesson. The lessons are broken up into pieces with just the right amount of information included so you learn at your own pace. Each lesson builds on the info from the previous lesson.

This is not a "Learn Overnight" course. As Steve explains "Gibson’s Learn and Master Guitar is not designed to teach specific songs. The course is designed to give you the playing skills and tools you need to play the songs you eventually want to play".

There is no monthly fee so you can take as long as you need to learn each lesson. There is an "Estimated Time To Learn" printed in your lesson book which is approximately 2 weeks per lesson. That being said, the entire 20 piece course should take less than a year to complete.

Learn & Master offers a 60-day money back guarantee and includes free online support for students, including a forum. Full access is free with your purchase of the program.

How to Read Tab

April 9th, 2010 No comments

The ability to read guitar tab is an essential skill necessary for guitarists who want to learn the guitar online. It is quite easy to understand and read once you get the hang of it. The ability to read tabs gives you one of the quickest and easiest ways to start playing the guitar.

Basic Guitar Method $24.99
Guitar Lessons

Guitar tab is divided into bars (horizontal lines) with a set number of beats (usually 4 beats) per bar. Each horizontal line represents a string of the guitar. The top line represents the 1st string of the guitar, the thinnest string (high e) while the bottom line represents the 6th string, the thickest string low E).

Here is an example using the chromatic scale. The chromatic scale should be practiced and played as often as possible because you play all 12 notes on the guitar in half steps. It is also a great warm up exercise.

How to Read Guitar Tab

Here is how to read/play this:

Play the 6th string on the 1st fret.
Play the 6th string on the 2nd fret.
Play the 6th string on the 3rd fret.
Play the 6th string on the 4th fret.

Play the 5th string on the 1st fret.
Play the 5th string on the 2nd fret.
Play the 5th string on the 3rd fret.
Play the 5th string on the 4th fret.


Be careful on the 3rd string as you only play three frets!!

The main drawback of guitar tabs is that they do not provide the duration of the notes. In most cases you have to figure out the timing of the tabs yourself.
