Watching this DVD makes you feel like you are with a teacher and the good thing is, he did play with John Denver for a few years so you feel confident that you are learning how to play his songs correctly. If you are a beginner, I wouldn't think this is the only lesson you would need to learn to play his songs. When John plays, it doesn't sound like it is hard to play but it is. In fact, even Peter Huttlinger mentions that John's music is much like rubbing your head in one direction and your stomach in the other. It does take a lot of practice if you are not used to playing much but it is lot of fun!
I would recommend this to anyone, beginnner or advanced student because you are getting a lesson by someone who really knows his music and it is really interesting to see him play up close without all the other instruments of the band around him. It's just him and the guitar and its very pleasant to listen to.
Going beyond just "Country Roads", Denver's music is deep, complicated, and beautiful. Pete Huttlinger, an award winning fingerstyle guitarist, toured with Denver before his death. Pete is unabashadly a fan of John Denver and his love of John and the music comes through nicely on this DVD set.
Although not for the beginner, if you are an "advanced" beginner, you will be able to start with one or two of the simpler songs of John Denver, as Pete moves through them pretty quickly (you will be using the pause button judiciously!) you will be assisted by the enclosed guitar tab booklet. Taken slowly so as to learn properly, these are beautiful songs, presented humbly, but with a dry sense of humor that belongs to Huttlinger. From this DVD set, I learned how deep Denver's music ran, but it also introduced me to Huttlinger---and I went from there to purchase his other teaching DVDs (on Jim Croce, and on practicing guitar) as well as Pete's musical CDs (which ever acoustic guitar player will fall in love with...especially "Naked Pop" sold here at Amazon).
Homespun does a great job with clear camera angles of Pete's left and right hands, and the songs are broken down, little by little. These are like taking very expensive personal lessons, and the DVDs will take months to learn. I find this to be among the finest that Homespun has put out (along with the Songs of Bob Dylan by Happy Traum), and are not just fun to learn, but will make you a better guitarist as you work through them.
Pete's manner is laid back and quite congenial. He talks about Jim and his great accompaniest both tragically gone in 1973. There's a reverence and love for their work by Pete, and he really seems to enjoy teaching it. I watched without playing at first, totally fascinated.
The camera shows both hands simultaneously. Pete demonstrates the very accurate compositions at full speed, then broken down, constantly giving you instruction on fingering and how the piece was composed. He throws in a bit of music theory, but it's not important. The pieces are intermediate in nature, but I would say, that if you put your mind and determination to a song as a beginner you'll learn it. Just take your time; let your fingers toughen up and your brain loosen up.
The sheet music included with the dvd(Folded up in the case) is in tablature and traditional script. No lyrics, but Pete will sing portions to show you how it matches with the playing. The nice part is that you can go over it and over it as much as you like- way cheaper than private lessons!
It would benefit you to be up to speed with barre chords, much of the instruction is based on them. So this DVD is probably best for the intermediate to advanced guitar player although it does depend on the player.
