There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. I bought this DVD along with the follow up based on the reviews here and the only conclusion I can draw is the publishing company paid fans of Television to write reviews. First alchemial, the title of the DVD gives it away, “Alchemical.
What I learned playing guitar is that, “shortcuts,” take a long time to learn and are not musical. Needless to write, this DVD does not teach any shortcuts either. I gave it two stars because there are points where something he says is valuable but, but, but he says it in passing so you’ll miss it. For example, he throws out the comment, “but actually you are changing keys when you are changing modes. If you know the concept that each mode is relative to the ionian major scale in different keys then all you have to do is learn all SEVEN fingering patterns of the ionian and you have just learned all the modes There are other nuggets out there of things he says briefly but it just isn’t worth it.
Richard Lloyd: ‘Alchemical Guitarist’ Guitar Lesson DVD | Guitarworld
I don’t find using numbers in music helpful, it will just make you neurotic like poor Lloyd. I get what he is doing with the numbers, intervals which he doesn’t explain, alhcemical, but, but in my opinion that is what your ears are for As for his other fretboard suggestions, well they can be easily answered by learning the notes on the fretboard then there is much less mystery and much less to memorize.
Sometimes taking a longer road is the shortest and most musical road.
My suggestion to you is if you are buying this DVD to learn the fretboard, I suggest you instead by a tutor on Lessonface. As someone who has played for around 30 years, I was often embarrassed by how little I knew about the fretboard. Sure, I could write songs and come up with complimentary parts when playing with like-minded people, but I could never shake that feeling that I really should know more.
Being a Television fan, this DVD was an easy sell. Richard’s style takes a little getting used to, and his personality may not suit everyone. Personally, I found him very entertaining and his teaching style really opened a new world for me. Granted, it probably took about 6 or 8 viewings of the first couple of episodes before I even started to understand what he was going on about, but once the idea of intervals really sunk in, and the cyclical nature of scales, I was able to move pretty quickly.
One caveat is that there are some mistakes here and there especially with the counting while playingand he tends to jump into certain subjects from the view of someone who knows a lot more rather than a beginner I’m talking about dealing with these concepts, not a beginner guitarist.
The fact that I was able to even catch these mistakes, though, is because I understood and used the earlier lessons.
So be prepared to watch these over and over again, because that’s where the beauty lies. It’s like watching someone paint something and what looks like just a bunch of colors gradually comes into focus. As someone else mentioned, the columns are on the DVD, so you can put it in your computer and print it out. There are some mistakes in there as well, though, so if something doesn’t make sense after reading it a dozen times, it may be because it’s not right remember “” and “”.
One person found this helpful. Lloyd a founding member of the seminal 70’s rock band Television is an engaging and unorthodox teacher.
Lloyd demonstrates musical laws that are immutable – and then breaks those laws down into their most individual pieces. It’s then up to you to put those pieces back together as you apply them to the fretboard.
Before you know it, you’ll be gliding up and down the neck vertically, bashing through the ‘boxes,’ and applying the modes in MUSICAL fashion and not in the flat manner in which they are presented in other materials. I learned more in two weeks about modes and their application with “TAG” than I did in the past twenty five years from other guitar methods.
Some parts are really, really tough. But here’s the carrot: Each DVD has 12 lessons. Spend a solid week working through each lesson, and guaranteed, you WILL be an improved guitarist at the end of 12 weeks; even better after See all 10 reviews.
