Has anyone seen this video? I am having trouble finding reviews about it, I am just wondering how well it teaches the techniques it goes over and how well the video is overall.
#2
I don't personally have it, but if it helps, I've talked to people who do and they all say it's excellent.

Is there something technically or stylistically unique that he does which requires people to buy his "instructional" video?
*reported*... twice in one reply!


OH NOES!!! Theowy is scawY!!!

with a response like that you are kind of putting off anyone else who ever made a video too... but I herd its a great DVD
#5
A lot of great guitarist with unique styles have made videos and Mark is hardly one of them, hence my slightly belittling question...

I dont care what you think about Mark, I just want to know about the DVD and if it is a good teaching tool.
#7
My thoughts on Mark coincide exactly with my thoughts on his "instructional" video.

You don't have to be a music major to know that he's incredibly unoriginal.

oh? well not many guitarists are "original" these days... as more and more people do things, people tend to repeat stuff... its like stories, movies, lyrics... etc... it sucks but you can't do anything about it... but you can recognize talent... Now if one of the dudes from FoB made a dvd... then I might start shooting people...

He's not talented, he's just a good guitarist. anyway...

The "unoriginals" are a type of lazy guitarist that don't push themselves to make anything different and it's people like you that gives them more of a reason to do more of the same.

So take your "can't do" attitude and shove it up your ass.

They aren't suppose to "try" and do stuff different... that isn't original at all... and would make them go against what they like just so they don't seem like a "cookie cutter" guitarist...

besides everything has been done... its just a matter of whos recognized as doing it first which is only a fame ordeal..

So... it's only original when you do the same as others? damn you're stupid. Stay in school... or go back.

First off, you're a loser.

Second, I didn't say a thing about his originality. I was referring to the fact that he is a technically solid guitarist, and the person that I quoted was clearly not aware of that.

I Agree with you on the fact that he's a technically solid guitarist, but there is nothing original in his playing that would create the need for someone to waste their money on his "instructional" video.

And next time you call me or anyone a loser make sure to hide the pictures of you in your profile Mr Baldy.

Stop dissing the guy, let it be.

Although in all honesty, I don't know what he has to offer that isn't offered on other instructional dvd's.

That being said, I haven't seen the DVD, so I Should not make assumptions.

It's not like you gonna die watching it. If it learns something to YOU then it's not a matter of good or bad, but a matter of essence too ur playing.

TS, maybe elaborate what you want too learn to play on ur guitar and/or in ur own music writing, and we could offer other suggestions on what are some nice dvd's.

Actually there is a point if hes a technically good player, you can learn good technique from his video. Maybe you dont think learning good technique is an important aspect of learning to play guitar, but it is infact one of the most important things to learn.

I like how you state and ignore the obvious in one reply.

He's not the only technically good player in the world, he just got famous being in a pop-rock band.

And if this IS about technique then he should just get the Michael Angelo Batio dvd instead, since he has way better technique.

I dont recall saying he was the only technically good player Mark tremonti is a dam good player and the thread starter could definately learn something off him, thats the point! and dont even start with the whos better than who card, Music isnt a competition,you should try and learn from as many sources as you can.

That just proves the point that the TS can learn more from other vids with better players, Like Satriani, MAB, or Paul Gilbert

I don't have to, it's been done already and yeah... he's unoriginal.

While i technically agree with you on this, learning from an unoriginal and pop-rock guitar player is not something that would help an new guitarist unless he wishes to sound generic and bland.

Well first off, better is a subjective term, it actually comes down to opinion at the end of the day. Define what better is!! is it how fast one can play, how good their fretting hand economy is, their right hand technique? you could say paul gilbert is a great plectrum player but he would get torn to shreds on finger style technique by any serious classical guitar player!! as you can see better is subjective. While you may think satriani etc are the best, it is only your view and I can personally name a dozen other guitar players that I think are much better, but that would only be my opinion. Now to your being original comment. You say that if you learn of Mark its bad because he has influence from other guitar players, but if you learn from an MAB DVD(I PERSONALLY FIND THE GUYS PLAYING BORING AND SOULESS) arent you just copying his style and being unoriginal yourself? You might want to rethink some of the bull**** your spewing

Did the TS mention anything in regards to finger style? Nope. Learn to read you dumb****.

The only reason i mentioned those names is because Mark himself has mentioned them as being influential in his playing and since his skills can't, in anyway, match those names, it is obvious that it's better to get dvd's from those guys instead.

MAB was only mentioned in regards to learning better technique, which he has and is on a level that Mark can't touch at the moment. I don't like MAB's music but i'll be as smart as you if I ignore his technical proficiency.

If you just buy instructional vids to just imitate, if you choose to just regurgitate what you've learned, then that's your choice, not mine.

If you have money to waste, then buy Mark's dvd, otherwise it's better to look elsewhere and just download tabs of his songs for free here on UG.

Why are you so hell bent on talking someone out of buying a DVD?
Does it really matter THAT much to you?
If so, then you're one pathetic loser.
I hope he already bought it just to spite you and make everything you say irrelevant.
