In my case it was Paul Gilbert's INTENSE ROCK II.



In the middle of the 90's there was no internet and I had some copy of a copy of a copied copy and VHS biggrin.gif I remember my two brothers really enjoyed this video even though they didn't play any instrument...yet smile.gif

When I saw this guy I was smashed! Guys who I consider to be guitar gods quickly went away from my mind smile.gif I had no electric guitar yest so i did all those licks on the classical.


What was Your first important video lesson?

Mine would probably be the only videos I own which would be the Rockhouse Method DVDs by Alexi Laiho and Michael Paget. I absolutely love their play styles so they heavily influenced how I see myself playing.

thats a really cool lesson. I watched your videos for it and FWIW I thought you made really excellent progress with it. you had it sounding good.


I remember years ago watching a chris impellitteri speed soloing video on VHS.... it kinda blew my mind! Unfortunately it also depressed me a bit!
I couldn't do anything from that video.

Gab's Blues licks 3 lesson here was a good one for me because when I learned it I couldnt see me playing it at full speed as it just seemed to be a little too fast. When I managed to play it at full speed it was awesome biggrin.gif

I watched Chris's lesson too...but thi was too sick for me biggrin.gif Comparing to Malmsteen or Kotzen in the 80's he had the wors haircut and he was like..not much more than speed... I mean the speed was insane but there guys who play fast and there something more in it smile.gif

My friend and I were talking about these old instructional videos this weekend. We both had the Paul Gilbert one, must have been in the late 80s/early 90s(?) and he had this Malmstien one. We were commenting on Ingwe not being a good teacher on the video, from what I remember he wouldn't slow it down and really explain and break down what he was doing, he'd just shred for the cameras - where Gilbert's video was excellent for teaching.

It would be great if somehow Gilbert's video could be put in the program that the instructional videos on this site are, the way you can close the little tabs and loop sections of it.

This isn't an instructional video, but I think this video, for me, can be considered my most important video concerning guitar. Vivian Campbell live is what made me want to play guitar more than anything. He is the guitarist that led me to heavier edged music and eventually Randy Rhodes, Sabbath, etc.

I wore this old tape out - had it on Beta tape (remember those?)



BTW - I did eventually see a Dio concert live, but it was after Vivian left and Craig Goldie was the guitarist. To this day I remember that concert being the best sounding show I have ever been to, and I've been to see many bands. The mix was perfect, thick, every instrument and Dio's voice were pristine.

Out of all the axemen that performed with Dio, Doug Aldrich is by far, my favorite! If you haven't done that already - check out his album from 97' - 'Midnight Sun', if I am not mistaken.
