Why not just start right in with the fun stuff? Because its too hard for a beginner? Not at all! Actually many of rocks most exciting, famous, and popular "guitar-parts" are easy enough for the complete (first-day) beginner! Paul Lidel knows whats fun and he knows what you need to learn to get you started off on the right foot. Hey, if it ain fun.....why do it? How to read TAB, tuning - how to use a tuner, and tune without a tuner, how to hold the pick, how to hold the guitar, left and right hand position, what the knobs & switches on an electric guitar do, Amp settings for clean and dirty sound & much more!


Guitar One Magazine Review (June 2000 issue) Looking for a quality rock guitar instructional video? Check out Paul Lidel's series of videos from Musicians Workshop. Lidel has played guitar with “Dangerous Toys” & “Dirty Looks”, & is a faculty member of the National Guitar Workshop, Austin Guitar School, & the University of Texas. In “Beginning Rock Guitar: The Fun Approach”, Paul gives beginning guitar students what they really want - the "how to" of playing 19 real rock songs, including "Iron Man," "Heart Shaped Box," & "Bulls On Parade." Then, when you're feeling pretty confident with your newfound abilities, you can move up to “Learn To Play Rippin' Lead Guitar”, in which Lidel takes you through an in-depth lesson on common scales, licks, tricks, & phrasing skills. The video features split screen close-ups & on screen tab so you won't miss a lick (or trick). Michael Mueller Guitar One Magazine, June 2000

AMAZON.COM REVIEW A great place to start, September 21, 2002 Reviewer: Joe Crescenzi from Staten Island, NY USA . Since buying my first guitar a couple of months ago, I've bought about 20 DVD lessons. As the title suggests, this DVD truly is a FUN approach. The lessons themself are nothing special, very serious and straightforward, but the results are nothing short of amazing. In the DVD you learn to play about 20 COOL guitar riffs. The first time you crank out the intro to the Rolling Stone's "Satisfaction" in front of your friends and family, they will look around to see if you're actually playing it yourself. It's a great feeling, and a great confidence builder for beginners like me.

Customer Compliments review: 5 star, great video: feb 5, 2002 Reviewer: A viewer (Missouri) If you're new to the guitar and want to play some tunes - this is the video of you. Paul does a great job throwing out some basic instruction mixed with some cool riffs. You won't be disapointed.

"The tape Beginning Rock Guitar, The Fun Aproach is excellent, the riffs are fun & easy to learn, I was able to learn each one in about 5 minutes." --Blake Cartwright Austin, Tx

"As far as I know, I am not aware of any other book like 66 Hot Rock Licks. I have a ton of How to guitar books. I think this book is extremely easy to read (something novel in a guitar book), well thought out, & not terribly difficult to pick up. All in all, I would say that this is a winner." --Jason Moore, Austin, Tx.

AMAZON.COM REVIEW: Don't give up yet!, April 2, 2004 Reviewer: Marsha Turnbull (Galt, CA United States) - See all my reviews At 45, and not being musically inclined, but always having wanted to learn to play guitar, I bought my first guitar & amp. After trying to play with my music store's DVD for two weeks I was about to give up. Then, I saw Paul's Beginning Rock Guitar DVD and thought I'd give it one more chance. What a life saver! Paul must be one of the best guitar teachers out there. This DVD totally rekindeled my interest, has me playing again on a regular basis and has me making plans to buy a better guitar. Now I know I can do this. Thanks Paul, you're awesome! Rock on!

HI I have several of Paul Lidel's DVDs and really like them.   Thanks again, I love your products -- simple, straight forward, and enjoyable. Victor Byrd, Nashville, TN
