Kelly Joe Phelps
This DVD is worth is worth the price just for the entertainment value. This video is for intermediate to advance players, however I would not discourage a newbie from purchasing it. Kelly’s guitar is set up like a square neck lap steel and you would likely find it difficult until changing the setup on your guitar. He uses a dobro capo and alternate tunings like open ‘d’.
With all that said, I love this video and just ordered his finger style DVD to go with it. His playing is smooth, sweet and tasteful. Kelly’s personality is laidback and patient. He performs a couple of complete songs. This is one of the best I’ve seen, you will not likely be disappointed!
