Hey i hope that i can get a good answer from some fellow musicians! I'am pretty much stuck right now i'm looking for something to improve my overall playing! I live where i unfortunetly cannot be taught by a real music teacher who knows his stuff. I just want to know if any of you know or have used AND improved by learning from a DVD on let's say music theory (which i want to learn), different scales and how to use them, and chords! Stuff like that i need just to improve my playing i need something on how to make a good song and understanding soloing! I'm sorry if this is very confusing but i'm not sure what i exactly want to learn, of coarse i want to improve everything and learn everything lol! I guess if i have to narrow it down i want to learn music theory something that can basically help me have a better understanding of music and how to use it and just become better lol. Thank you for your time! Any advice or information would be greatly appreciated

Are online lessons from a teacher an option for you? We've taught many in your same situation, and are far less that what you'd pay for local lessons, in most cases.

I know of absolutely no good books or videos, that do a good job at all on the teaching side of things, and worse on the application side.

Best,

Sean

i tend to think that buying DVDs offers a really poor return on your investment as far as hours of instruction.

I'd instead be inclined to look at a website like jamplay, or to get a book. I've heard a lot of good things about the book "Guitar Soloing," by Gilbert et al, although I haven't used it myself. (it's actually part one of a two-part series, followed by "Advanced Guitar Soloing.")

I understand but i have been playing for about 4 1/2 years. I would consider myself a good guitar playing you know? Right now i'm just stuck i have no other options i need to know music front to back to add to my arsenal so to speak i want to learn how to write good music and understand it you know. Thank you i will check it out!

I cant agree less on the self tuition via dvd's... i can call myself a pretty good player, i am completely self taught and it got me into the conservatory. I love lick library dvd's, there's some real nice dvd's around
