Best Lessons from the Master, September 18, 2012
By Richard George Tatro
This review is from: Lap Steel Guitar Instructional DVD GeorgeBoards Basics and Blues 2008 (DVD) I have been very pleased with the lessons on this DVD by the Master George Boards. Just listening to him providing hints, licks and lessons is a treat! This DVD shows you how to use your hands and fingers from watching over his shoulders! To me, George Boards uses the best method, and the absolute best technique of teaching how to play the Lap Steel Guitar! He walks you through the process slowly and with precision, it also makes it much easier to observe and follow him! His methods of teaching has given me confidence which has allowed me to move on with more ability every time I view the DVD! If you really want to learn how to play the Lap Steel Guitar this DVD is a must, and believe me it is the best money spent for your education! Buy it you won't be sorry! I can hardly wait to get my next George Boards DVD!

Effective lap steel instruction, November 3, 2013
By Tripp Gazzer
This review is from: Lap Steel Guitar Instructional DVD GeorgeBoards Basics and Blues 2008 (DVD) What I love about this video is that it starts out by sounding each string to the proper tune. You can play it over as many times as you need. If you know nothing about lap steel this video can get you going, the guy talks real slow while explaining the basics. He shows things in a slow mode and then a regular mode. He is a real professional and gets into more advanced techniques as it progresses, it also comes with an audio cd with some very cool blues playing on it. You would be doing great to get that far, and he shows how you can do it. I would recommend anything that George Boards is teaching. This video is exactly what it says "Basics and Blues", it will help you very much.

This review is from: Lap Steel Guitar Instructional DVD GeorgeBoards Basics and Blues 2008 (DVD) Follow the instructions on this disc and you will be playing something on the lap steel by the time you get to the end. Full of useful and easy techniques that will make you sound like you have been playing longer than you have. Well worth the money.
I'm so supper jacked with your guitar. I'm having some much fun displaying it and playing this thing of beauty on stage. Thanks much.
Here is my first attempt using it on a song from our new album - Hecktor Pecktor - Campfire Fables.
I'm the one in the middle.
"Hi george, hope the new boards' are selling well, see you have dropped the alumitone's on them for conventional pups. The relic' is featured on an album released this month by a lady singer-songwriter that I helped to engineer and played on, called Sunflower Lady by Suzanna Shore,all on facebook. Sounding great."

"It is like having my own instructor sitting right across from me".

"I have always steered clear of C6 playing because, although I loved the sound, it always seemed too hard to learn. My son made me a custom lap steel for my birthday and so I purchased "Lap Steel Guitar 101" to "give C6 a go", I usually play a dobro with open G tuning. What a surprise! With the superb camera view and the easy visual and verbal instructions, I was playing along with the cool jazzy "A and F" tracks within minutes! I will now pursue my learning from further GeorgeBoards Lap Steel Products."

"I have been a guitarist for 62 yrs [professional] and only now have I decided to play the lap steel, then after that, move on to pedal. On a whim I ordered the GeorgeBoards lap steel guitar dvd. I was amazed! In ten minutes I had it tuned[c6th] and within an hour was playing chords. I am 73 yrs old, and if I can do it, so can anyone that has a desire to play lap steel guitar. I've never entered a review for anything, but I would highly recomend this product to anyone!"
"There isn't a lot of instruction on six string c6 tuned lap steel out there, but, fortunatly this series seems to be a good one. I only have the Hank Sr. one, but am planning already to purchase the rest of George's stuff. This review is only for the Hank Sr. DVD and CD package. The lessons are presented well and get right to the point. Intro's, riffs and simple variations are clearly shown. The lessons are so well done that it's kind of deceptive just how much good information is being passed to the viewer.
Having a CD with backup music (with vocals!) is a real helpful bonus. The backup music is guitar and vocals with NO steel. The only other thing you'll need is a recording of the original Hank songs (But really, who would order this DVD that didn't allready have a Hank cd collection?)
All in all, an amazingly inexpensive, nicely done piece of work. Thanks!!"
"I picked up the Stealth at the PO this morning and have only one word to say about it: Wow!
I am excited as I was when I got my first real Les Paul in 1976- probably more so because that was not a particular good year for LP's.
My other steels are just tools- this lap steel is a real musical instrument! You just put the bar on it and it sings.
And thanks again for all of the goodies you threw in the box- they will keep me busy for a long time."
"The Stealth arrived today!
Everything is fantastic, the pickup sounds great.
Thank you very much for the included DVDs and the very quick delivery."
"got the steel!!! in love thanks!!"
"My Stealth #009(License to Steel) arrived safe and sound this morning. WOW! Looks great, sounds great, plays great. Your reputation for attention to detail is well deserved. I will take pics and post it on the Steel Forum in the next day. Thanks! I started playing it through a 1963 Fender Twin (blonde) that a friend lent me. OMG. "
"Got it!!! She's beeeeeaaauuuttttiiifffulllllllll! Thank you soooo much for the instruction CD's. And I love the fact that she (or maybe I should say "he") is 007!!"
You're the Best!
Stay in touch!
"She's here and she's beautiful :-) Thank you so much. It's perfect.
I'll be posting this on the forum.
It's so nice to have such an excellent, wellmade and well-loved instrument. This is going to be a real joy for a long time to come. Good luck with your continued endeavors... I suspect I'll be looking to your shop again!
PS, thanks very much for the instructional materials. Lots of good work to do :-)"
