REVIEW IN D-DAY'S REVENGE
The Great Kat: Beethoven's Guitar Shred DVD
Let me start by saying that I was very excited about watching this DVD.
I know that I obviously had no bearing on how this was made, but it made
me feel as if someone read my less than flattering review of a previous
Great Kat video and made this one just for me.
My complaint about the other DVD dealt with the fact that each video was
simply a dizzying flash of pictures during each song while I was really
hoping to see The Great Kat actually playing. So obviously "Beethoven's
Guitar Shred" is a very pleasant surprise! I am now able to watch her
shredding on the guitar and enjoying every minute.
I would say that my personal favorites are "Paganini's Caprice #24",
"Beethoven's 5th Symphony" and of course "Bach's Brandenburg Concerto
#3". One of the reasons I chose the latter is the fact of seeing The
Great Kat in an entirely different way. It was almost shocking to see
her dressed in white and pink rather than the trademark black leather.
(Have no fear all of you drooling male fans. There is still plenty of
leg and the ample cleavage that you've all come to know and love.)
As with many DVD's, there are also some bonus features and even a Kat
Kartoon. Not a cartoon story like you would watch on Saturday
mornings... but it is "The flight of The Bumble-bee" being played by an
animated Great Kat.
It felt like I watched this entire DVD in about 10 minutes, and perhaps
that was the true time. But as I touched on earlier, it is easily
something that I can watch many times (and already have) due to my joy
at seeing The Great Kat for more than a split second at a time. I even
felt like I was being given a privilege by catching brief moments of
seeing her play without the trademark open mouth or gritting teeth. It
Overall, I would give The Great Kat's "Beethoven's Guitar Shred" a big
Does she have the Metallica or Michael Jackson sized production budget
for videos? Of course not. But it's easy to overlook that point and
simply enjoy the blistering speed of the music and the opportunity to
see The Great Kat in action.
