DVD Guitar Lessons

Learn and Master Guitar

Gibson’s Learn and Master Guitar,  formerly known as Learn and Master Guitar, contains 20 Guitar Dvds, 5 Jam Along CDs, Learn and Master Lesson Book, and Unlimited Access to Student Support Site. Professional dvd guitar instruction with Steve Krenz.

Price: $149.00 Learn and Master Guitar

Learn & Master Guitar, winner of the 2008 Acoustic Guitar Magazine Players’ Choice Awards, two Telly Awards, and an AEGIS Award for Excellence in Education, is widely recognized as the best home instruction course for learning guitar available anywhere. Course features acoustic guitar lessons and electric guitar lessons. This the only guitar instructional dvd package you’ll ever need on your journey toward mastery of the guitar. All you provide is the practice!

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. A 30 minute "Learn Guitar Overnight" video isn’t going to do it and advanced instructional videos are usually too specialized and they often assume that you know more than you do. Learn & Master Guitar is a complete step-by-step video instruction guitar lesson dvd course that takes you from any skill level, even if you’re a total novice, through the advanced skills training used by the pros.

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.


Acoustic Guitar LessonsOnline Community & Student Support:  Build a student profile, post recordings of your songs, track your progress, and get feedback from Steve and other students. This is a vibrant learning community with over 6,000 active users. Steve Krenz, the author of Gibson’s Learn and Master Guitar, is online regularly, answering questions and offering encouragement.

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.

Michael Angelo Batio
Name: Michael Angelo Batio
DOB: June 1956
From: Chicago, Illinois
Bands: Nitro, Solo
Guitars: Dean
Amplifiers: Marshall
Links: Official Website

Michael Angelo Batio – MAB is an American heavy metal guitarist and columnist. Batio was voted the "No. 1 Shredder of All Time" by Guitar One Magazine in 2003. He was also listed as one of the "Top 100 Greatest Metal Guitarists of All Time" by Guitar World Magazine, for which he writes the column Time to Burn, and one of the "20 Greatest Shredders of All Time" by Total Guitar Magazine, both in April 2008.

Batio began his recording career in 1984 when he joined new Chicago-based heavy metal band Holland, an eponymous project set up by ex-Steppenwolf singer Tommy Holland. With major label Atlantic Records, the band released their debut studio album in 1985 entitled Little Monsters, which saw moderate success in the United States. The band split up soon after, and a compilation of material from the Little Monsters sessions, Wake Up the Neighbourhood, was released in 1999 through Batio’s label M.A.C.E. Music.

After the breakup of Holland, Batio started his own eponymous band with singer Michael Cordet, bassist Allen Hearn and drummer Paul Cammarata. The Band did not release any albums, though three of their songs appeared on the 1998 Nitro compilation Gunnin’ for Glory.

In 1987 Batio joined glam metal artist Jim Gillette on his solo album Proud to Be Loud, before founding the band Nitro with bassist T.J. Racer and drummer Bobby Rock. In 1989 Nitro released their first studio album, O.F.R., from which they released two singles, "Freight Train" and "Long Way From Home". The music video for "Freight Train", which received much airplay on MTV, was notable for featuring Batio playing his now famous ‘Quad Guitar’, a notion which FHM Magazine voted one of the "50 most outrageous moments in rock history".

1987 was also the year Batio released his first instructional video with "Star Licks" as part of the "Masters Series" and was one of the first recognized rock guitarists to make the jump into video instructional material. This video was the very first "shred" instructional program showing many modern guitar concepts for the first time.

In April 1993, Batio founded his own record label, M.A.C.E. Music, which became one of the first labels online in 1996. He used this label when he began recording his first album, No Boundaries, which he released in 1995. Batio’s second studio release was Planet Gemini in 1997, which showed a very progressive, experimental side to his playing. In 1999, Batio released his second instructional video, Jam With Angelo, which came with his third studio album as a companion CD: Tradition. This was quickly followed by a fourth full-length album in 2000, Lucid Intervals and Moments of Clarity, which was credited to "Mike Batio and Rob Ross", the latter being the drummer.

In 2001, Batio released a CD with his band "C4," covering songs from his Holland years and including the original "Call to Arms." It was his 1st all vocal CD since recording with Nitro.

In 2003, Batio released his first DVD, the title release in his Speed Kills series, followed by the second, Speed Lives, in 2004. It was also in this year that Batio released a compilation album, Lucid Intervals and Moments of Clarity Part 2, which featured songs from Tradition and Lucid Intervals.

In 2005, Michael released his highly anticipated cover/tribute/studio album, Hands Without Shadows, which featured guest appearances from such musicians as Mark Tremonti (of Alter Bridge fame), Rudy Sarzo (of Ozzy Osbourne, Quiet Riot, Whitesnake and Dio fame) and virtuoso newcomer Bill Peck. In 2006, DVD Speed Kills 2 was released, in addition to the first in the new Hands Without Shadows series, Performance. Batio’s latest release came in 2007, when his first two albums – No Boundaries and Planet Gemini – were remixed and remastered with additional drums, for an album entitled 2 X Again; the title of a song from the first album. Angelo also released three DVDs in 2007: Speed Kills 3, 25 Jazz Progressions and MAB Jam Session.

Michael Angelo Batio has an advanced knowledge of music theory, with a deep understanding of complex scale combinations and time signatures which assist him in his compositions. Batio has cited F-sharp minor and F-sharp phrygian dominant as his favorite. He has described F sharp minor as a "demonic" key, giving a dark, evil sound.
