Not so easy for him as he has health issues, However I have sorted it out for him and he now has the DVD in his possession
Great! It just takes a little help from your friends. I've been working through Keni Lee's videos, which are great, and this thread made me decide to order John's DVD. It takes a while to get to the Bannana Republik Of Italy, but it'll be here one day...
Listen to John's performing vids. If you like them, buy the teaching vid. It's not my style, but I still learned a lot from it. And would buy it again. Crap, I may have to buy it again. I loaned it out.
As someone else said, not technical, but simple and useful and you just kind of play it a few times and absorb.
I'm not sure how much I dig his style either, but he plays well and uses some interesting licks. I ordered it because I want to write original songs and can learn from his licks and approach, even if I don't want to copy his style. You can never have too much learning material.
Just as Mark says, John's DVD is excellent. Keni Lee's CDs are fantastic too. They are so different that there is no conflict or overlap. The one thing I would say about John's DVD is that you really do need to play it over and over again (which he says that you should do on the disc). Let it get into your subconscious. Money well spent I feel.
Mine is on its way, (Thanks WebWeaver) heard a lot about it, now lets try the pudding, "The proof is in", i want it as i seem to be stuck in a rut, getting fed up with everything sounding the same, especially the improvisations of known songs.
I want some of that ol Mississippi Delta blues, here in mid Bedfordshire lol.
John's playing got me started both building and playing. I was just surfing the web one night and I couldn't believe the gritty bluesy sound. This music is both primitive and complex at the same time. I always buy what ever he puts out, and always satisfied...Marcus
