George Lynch "Behind the Player" DVD

Post by Playing4JC » Mon May 23, 2011 6:10 pm

I just got a new George Lynch DVD from the IMV "Behind the Player" series. George is playing at his best here. He teaches you how to play Mr. Scary and Tooth and Nail note for note plus he shows you some ways to embellish certain parts.

George has a few videos included and a little section where he kind of goes over his musical history. There is also a section where he jams the songs with a band in the studio. My favorite part is when he plays the whole song to a backing track right after breaking down the parts. George just goes off on these sections. [smilie=gt-happyup.gif] Lynch can still play the old stuff note for note when he wants to, but I think that just takes a lot of the fun out playing for him.

He shows you Mr. Scary in its entirety, note-for-note?? How long does that take?? :yikes:

One last thing before I quit I never wanted anymore than I could fit into my head I still remember every single word you said and all the shit that somehow came along with it still there's one thing that comforts me since I was always caged but now I'm free

Lynch has a lot different guitar tracks on the studio version, but he shows you the main parts that he uses to play the song live. It is a 90 minutes video and Guitar Center has it for $14.95. George is as scary as ever in this video. [smilie=icon_biggrin.gif]

I finally watched all of the Mr Scary lesson on the DVD and George does show and explain most of the overdubed parts he did on the studio recording. It just goes to prove that George can still play exactly like he did back then, but as he says in the video he plays around with the songs to keep things interesting for himself. George is one of my favorite players and biggest influences so this video is just too cool for sure. [smilie=gt-happyup.gif]

That's pretty cool!! I've never seen a video before where they actually taught you a song. Granted, I'm not well-versed in the guitar videos, but the ones I've seen pretty much all involved a famous player showing you a few licks and techniques, but no actual songs (at least not the whole song). icon_smile

Now that you mention it Mark, the only other guitar star that I can think of who has instructional DVD's with sections where he breaks down some of his songs note for note is Lincoln Brewster. He has his "One on One" series volume one and volume two. Both of them have two DVD's each.

You are going to love the Lincoln Brewster videos Surfy. He is a great teacher and and players of all levels can get a lot out of the videos because of his detailed breakdown of even the most difficult or nuanced parts. Volume two is a double sided DVD and volume one is a two disc set. A few hours of one on one lessons with Lincoln Brewster can not help but make anyone a better player. He will show you some seriously cool stuff that you can get a lot of use out of. Lincoln is one of the best teachers I have ever seen and George Lynch does a great job of teaching also. George gave guitar lessons for years and it shows in his video. This one is much more detailed than his old REH video. George replaced Randy Rhoads as the guitar teacher in Randy's mother's music store.

It was cool to see Lincoln Brewster get some respect and make the cut for the first 10 of the 100 gifted guitarists everyone should know......but may not have heard of. Anytime you can get lumped in with players like Tommy Emmanuel you are in pretty darn good company. [smilie=icon_biggrin.gif]
