The Rock House Blues 3 DVD Mega Pack is a compilation of 3 excellent instructional videos for guitar from Blues Master John McCarthy. The 3 DVDs are each 60 minutes in length and will take you from beginner to advanced. Purchased separately, these discs would cost much more.

Blues are the foundation of virtually every major American music form born in the 20th century. In this comprehensive instructional program designed by renowned guitarist John McCarthy, you will develop an understanding of guitar basics and a solid foundation for playing the blues. Learn essential blues chords, scales, lead techniques like string bending, vibrato, hammer-ons, pull-offs, and other skills made famous by countless blues legends. There are complete blues rhythms like the 12-bar blues, 2-string rhythms, the shuffle feel, and more. You will apply what you learn over the full band backing tracks that give you the feel of playing in your own band.

Intermediate DVD 2
Building on the techniques learned in the beginner DVD, in this Intermediate tutorial John will show you vital blues skills like vibrato, slides, string skipping, dead strums and more. John's lessons cover how to play full blues scales with tri-tones, the B.B. Box and how to construct a 12-bar blues progression. He challenges you to learn complete blues solos, riffs and syncopated rhythm progressions. The full band backing tracks let you feel the excitement and energy of playing in your own blues band.

Advanced DVD 3
This instruction will propel you to the most advanced stages of Blues Guitar. Learn the talk back effect, expansion on a main theme and how to fuse Jazz into Blues music. Master lead techniques such as rakes, pick and finger, and advanced bending.

    I support the review from the very first person that reviewd this 3DVD set..... and..... ....Let me tell you, yes it is great for the very begginer. If you are an intermediate or advance Blues guitar player this might not be a product for you. I consider this product a three levels Begginer Tutorial(DVD would be renamed as begginer-begineer, begginer-intermediate and begginer-advanced, the comments on the back cover of every dvd states that this will rock your world but since you cannot make a preview from the actual tutorials you would be misled by this comments. If you already know some cool blues riffs and licks I won't recommend this to you. +3 Stars because is very good for the very begginer. -2 stars because publisher notes mislead Consumers.

    Like most players I'm mostly self taught. This dvd set can literally take you from knowing nothing about the blues to competently jamming with the provided backing tracks. Two thing about this set make it stand out from other instructional videos. The picture in picture views of both hands including player's view.Also, the guitar fretboard has stickers with fret numbers on it. I find this way easier to follow since you learn to recognize numbers at a very early age. Music notation and even Tab takes awhile to get the hang of. John is an engaging instructor. Many dvds are too pedantic or overly complex. Some instructors are best descibed as sleeping pills.I've watched all three dvd several times and haven't even picked up a guitar yet. There is on line support but I haven't tried it yet. If your into any music that has blues at it's roots you will find this dvd set ultra helpful.
