Michael K."..Great website, guys!.."
Great website, guys! i've tried out the fingerstyle and bluegrass lesson sets so far and can see there's going to be more than enough to keep me busy for a while. the teachers for both lessons are top notch too. thanks!
Stephen K."..All I've got to do now is to remember to eat.."
I would like to say what a fantastic site you have I am having a ball. All my life I have wanted to learn an instrument but due to something in the way I learn just can't cope unless I can see a real-time demonstration step by step, with someone explaining what's going on and why? I have tried before but could never understand strumming...after on 40 minute lesson..I can do it and I can do different rhythms. All I've got to do now is to remember to eat and go to work and not spend all week on more lessons. Fantastic
Rosie"..Your website is a revelation!.."
Thanks for your support Jamplay staff. As a complete novice in the world of guitar playing I was finding it all very baffling trying to learn from books. Your website is a revelation! Steve Eulberg explains everything so clearly and proceeds at such a good pace for the beginner, it is now starting to make some sense (although it's early days yet!!) I am so pleased that I recommended you to my equally frustrated colleagues!! Thanks for such a brilliant service!
Nigel V."..Top site I wouldn't change a thing..."
I love the service You provide, It Is the best site on the net, full of information with cleaver & knowledgeable instructors. It Is my new favorite website & i frequent it a few times daily to keep my guitar learning moving! Top site I wouldn't change a thing.
keep up the good work.
Stephen"..Out of all of other sites that I have looked at (fee & free) JamPlay is by far the best I have come across!.."
Out of all of other sites that I have looked at (fee & free) JamPlay is by far the best I have come across! Keep up the good work and LOVE your site!
Darren"..I run an internet design company.. Jamplay.com is one of the best sites I have ever visited.."
I have run an internet design and production company here in the UK for the last seven years. Jamplay.com is one of the best sites I have ever visited. It looks great, it works great and the content is fantastic. So much so that I can only just type this morning due to very sore finger tips on my left hand. Can't wait to get home and move on to lesson 2.
Carri W."..I think JamPlay is a great concept..."
I am really enjoying being able to learn at my own convenience, in my own home. I have two boys at home 11, and 12 so they keep me quite busy, But it is good to know that when I do have any spare time, I can pick up
my guitar and learn another lesson.
I think JamPlay is a great concept. I have already told quite a few people about it.
I have a long way to go, but hopefully by the end of the summer I will be able to sit by the bonfire and play some of my favorite songs.
Vi G"..Hi again, I just had to write back to you and tell you that I have never had such a terrific customer service issue resolved so pleasantly. I am 63 years of age, have dealt with so many situations, but you, your companies response to this issue has bee.."
Customer Service Satisfaction
Floyd"..Just thought I'd check in and tell you how pleased I am with JamPlay.."
Just thought I'd check in and tell you how pleased I am with JamPlay..I am absorbing lessons very quickly because
they are well taught, thoroughly explained, and provide a good selection of songs. Thanks!
Don B."..I'm loving it!.."
I'm loving it! Steve is great, and I have only looked briefly at some of the other instructors, but am looking forward to learning from them. I have been "playing" for 30 years, but always wanted to get serious and learn the guitar. JamPlay is giving me that chance, as well as taking away any excuses.
Thank you for your service.
William H."..Acoustic Guitar has been mostly frustrating to me until I came across Steve's program..."
I am working on the beginning guitar series with Steve Eulberg and find his Acoustic Guitar series to be excellent. Although I am 80 years old and have tried on and off for many years, (using many different programs) to learn Acoustic Guitar it has been mostly frustrating to me until I came across Steve's program. He has finally put together a simple, logical, easily executed approach that really makes sense and is a joy to follow. I am looking forward to continuing his series.
Tim D."..Being able to select a teacher that I can relate to is fantastic.."
Very happy with your service, not only with the cost savings over private lessons but overwhelmed by the vast knowledge through the instructors. Being able to select a teacher that I can relate to is fantastic. I am self taught and my playing has improved greatly in just a few days of your service. Flat out-nothing else like it out there...Thanks Tim D.
Todd H."..I'm very, very impressed.."
I've been a member of Jamplay for all of three days and I'm very, very impressed. If I'd know it would be this easy to learn to play a guitar I would have started a long time ago. Keep up the good work.
Thanks for having a great site that delivers as advertised and excellent customer realations.
James R.".. This has been the best learning tool I have ever had.."
This is a great service, I have been one on one with teachers, watched DVDs, learned from friends, however this has been the best learning tool I have ever had.
Thank you James
Denver P."..You have far and away the best, most encouraging, effective program I've ever had the pleasure of participating in..."
I am not in the habit of writing fan mail, but somebody at JamPlay really knows what they're doing. You have far and away the best, most encouraging, effective program I've ever had the pleasure of participating in. In summary, the three principle strengths, of your course, IMHO are: (a) the step-by-step approach to mastering fundamentals, (b) the quality, and incredible patience of your instructors, and (c) the way you use the camera to make things perfectly clear.
Ralph H."..The course quality and video production values are tops.."
Actually, I'm quite pleased with JamPlay. I'm a rank beginner and had never found a course of instruction online that started with absolute basics, especially my instructor's insistence on my getting picking and rhythm down before learning a singe note or chord! What a revelation! I knew some chords but had never gotten a firm handle on picking and rhythm. Finally I'm starting in the right place and I feel I will progress quickly. The course quality and video production values are tops. Thanks for having such a great site! Kind regards, Ralph
Linda J."..I will continue to refer this site..."
I have been so pleased with the plethera of information as well as the concise, easy to follow manner in which it is presented during my promo trial to Jam Play. Living in a rural area it is oft times difficult for some students to get into town for formal lessons. Jam Play offers a true quality of lessons with various styles of musicians at an affordable cost, on their own schedule, right at home. I sound like a commercial, don't I! I am sincere. As a paino/voice instructor with a small amount of guitar understanding, I will be referring all guitar students to your web site.
Terry Clark"..your teachers are great and i love that you actually add new lessons.."
I have been taking free guitar lessons online for some time and was getting pretty damn tired of reading article after article and not really learning anything so I decided to try your site and let me tell you it was certainly worth the money. I dont like paying for websites but this one is def worth it, your teachers are great and i love that you actually add new lessons.
Anthony".. I give you people A+ 100% rating..."
I have to admit, this has been the best place to learn EVERYTHING about playing the guitar and learning specifics about the guitar in general. I give you people A+ 100% rating. I did not even sign on in the first few days of my membership. Busy trying to learn from a dvd in a book. I could have been so much more heading to where I want to be, and that is NOT a rock star, but a musician. I'm still learning your site, you have so much to offer. Keep up whatever your doing because I am now learning...
Christopher Seremetis"..I'm following Steve's beginner lessons and he's awesome. I feel like I'm in the room...."
JamPlay ROCKS. So far, I'm thrilled that I found out about JamPlay. I'm following Steve's beginner lessons and he's awesome. I feel like I'm in the room with him. Things I love about JamPlay:
> Screen size of the lesson videos (nice!)
> The conversational presentation style
> Multi-camera angles + diagrams
> The pace + depth of the lessons
Hilary S"..Your site is awesome! .."
I am enjoying my membership very much, thank you! Your site is awesome! It is well laid out, and easy to navigate. I especially love that there are so many wonderful instructors who spend so much time teaching, and helping people like me to learn to play. I am finally looking forward to learning to
play the guitar I bought 25 years ago. Hopefully, even an old dog like me can learn some new tricks :)
Kyle"..I find every one to be thoughtful, well-paced, and very satisfying..."
Eve Goldberg's Beginners classes are terrific. I find every one to be thoughtful, well-paced, and very satisfying. Props to Eve.
Brian D."..Glad I joined! .."
So far - so good! I had been trying to learn to play on my own for the last 3 months. Since signing up with JamPlay I have probably made as much progress in a week as I had in the prior 3 months. Glad I joined!
G. Fischer"..The lessons are really well made.."
Hi there, I just wanted to let you know that, I am enjoying jamplay very much. Cool place and I am learning loads. Is really the best site I found to learn to play the guitar. Everyone is very friendly and helpful.The lessons are really well made. So continue the good job. Thanks for the support and help.
Deb C."..It's a perfect format for me.."
I'm loving my lessons from Jamplay! I've had my guitar for 30 years and never had the time to learn to play properly. It's a perfect format for me as I can fit it into my own schedule. Love it! Thanks!
Cyndi L."..You have an awesome website .."
Your website is great. I am familiar with it and love it! I'm not a great guitarist by any means but you helped me improve from just playing cords and basic strumming to being able to add bass notes and picking a little. I wanted to improve my playing and through Jamplay I definitely have. Your pricing is great as well. I look forward t o another year of learning and improving my guitar playing ability. You have an awesome website and I do recommend you to anyone who has expressed interest in learning guitar. Keep up the great work!
Q. Williams"..Thumbs up for JamPlay..."
Just letting you know that I am very pleased with my JamPlay membership. I'm having a lot of fun and learning many new and exciting things about playing guitar. Particularly the Bluegrass with Steve Eulberg and Rock with Brad Henecke lessons. I've checked out some other areas too that are
equally exciting and I'm planning to really take advantage of this site and all it has to offer.
Thanks for making a difference in my playing skills. Thumbs up for JamPlay.
Joe R."..I'm thoroughly enjoying your service.."
I just wanted to say I'm thoroughly enjoying your service. I've been playing self-taught guitar for 12 years now and it is extremely refreshing to come back and look at things from a different perspective. I absolutely love the time and dedication your instructors put into their courses and I believe the quality of your lessons goes above and beyond anything that any of your competitors can offer (I've tried a few). Thanks for providing such a great resource.
Katie B."..I've become a much better guitar player in just a couple days!.."
I am so impressed with your site and lessons! I just joined a few days ago and have listened to the three beginning lessons from most of your guitar teachers. I've become a much better guitar player in just a couple days! I will recommend your site to all my friends. Thanks you so very much for your great service!
Jason H"..The quality of your instructors, their demeanor, and accessibility is just amazing to me. .."
I just wanted to comment on how fantastic a product JamPlay is. I signed up for a year with few expectations. The breadth of instructors is amazing. The number of courses and the progress report was easy to use and get started with. I really feel like I am showing improvement. All of that is worth the price of admission but the live jamchat is simply over the top. I have been listening to it in the background while at work and have learned so much just by being around and listening to people chat about music for the past week. In particular, yesterday’s sessions were very helpful for me. Marcello Berestovoy started talking theory, which I really enjoyed. He unlocked a concept of singing the notes and playing them as an exercise to help get the songs and thoughts expressed through the guitar. The hand is just an instrument. Steve Eulberg had a session on songwriting that was active and included all participants. It was the first time I had been involved with the songwriting process and gave me confidence that I could start doing it, even at my level. Lauren Passarelli played some great songs from suggestions by participants and helped me with a chord progression of a song I have been working on for a while. Chris Liepe then went through the CAGED system and made it really accessible. I was blown away. This morning, Miche Fambro, was playing. He is simply outstanding and didn’t make anyone who was asking questions feel silly. His talent level is through the roof! And, finally, this afternoon, DJ Phillips helped me tab out another some of the difficult parts I have been having problems with on another song. The quality of your instructors, their demeanor, and accessibility is just amazing to me. To have access to such talented artists and be able to get individualized response to questions is very very valuable. Private lessons would cost a fortune in comparison. You have really brought a service with such incredible value to a price-point that is accessible for most people who are serious about improving their skills on guitar. I sincerely want to thank you for all that you provide and look forward to being able to improve my playing to the point of being able to share music with others.
Douglas S."..Looking forward now to a really happy retirement and doing something I have always wanted to do.."
This is the best investment I have ever made!
I cant believe how much I have learned in just a few lessons-terrific stuff!
Looking forward now to a really happy retirement and doing something I have always wanted to do-it's never to late to learn they say....and I'm about to find out!
Warmest regards to all at JamPlay
Benjamin Gross"..I found it very useful to have alongside my in person teacher.."
A superb website. I found it very useful to have alongside my in person teacher. That way there was something new to do in between real life lessons. Highly recommended.
Calvin Thompson"..I can now just pick up my guitar whenever I am in the mood, sit down at my PC & start learning.."
WOW guys I just wanted to say great job on the site. I used to play guitar a lot but just somehow managed to lose interest & could no longer find time to play. I can now just pick up my guitar whenever I am in the mood, sit down at my PC & start learning. I have never been so excited about learning! Yesssssssssss! Thanks again!
Jerry"..The lessons I've taken are well done and the teaching system does a nice job of building skills.."
The lessons I've taken are well done and the teaching system does a nice job of building skills. I am considering transferring from monthly to quarterly membership.
Peter H."..I would like to express a "Big Thank You" to JamPlay.."
I would like to express a "Big Thank You" to JamPlay for how far you have brought me over the last 6 months or so.
In particular, I would like to say THANKS to Brad Henecke for his examplary stlye of instruction. A great blend of theory and technique with the nescessary formula of "Pratice = Gratification". I am so pleased that the music I would chose to play, is now a source of such great pleasure as apposed to a frustrating workout. The "weight is off " and the workout is a lifestyle. Thx Brad
Thank you all.
Darwin D."..Your service is first rate!.."
Your service is first rate! I started at the very beginning as I am waiting for my new Martin D28 to arrive on the 6 th of Oct. ( this weekend) My son is delivering it from Tommy Lee Music in Vancouver. I can hardly wait to see it. So I am without a guitar for a few more days as I gave my last guitar to one of my grandaughters as she is taking music right now. Anyway I would recommend your service to anyone as it is excellent! Yours truly, Darwin D.

George S."..Where were you guys 20 years ago?.."
I'm enjoying the service a great deal. Doing a lot of exploring at the moment but it appears to be well planned, well thought out, and has everything I need. My only question is: where were you guys 20 years ago? I know that's not fair and it's never too late to get going. Super good instructors. JamPlay is top notch.
John T."..JamPlay is hands down the best program I have ever been involved in!.."
To whom it may Concern,
I have been taking lessons from individuals and spending a lot of my own time learning how to play the guitar. JamPlay is hands down the best program I have ever been involved in! The individual lessons are just long enough to teach a lot without cramming in too much. The teachers are great
at what they do and best of all, the descriptions and explanations are very concise and clear. So far I must say I am thoroughly impressed with what I have experienced so far! Keep up the great work!
James I."..I HIGHLY RECOMMEND JAMPLAY!.."
I'm have been trying to play guitar for about 1 yr. I have several guitar teaching programs, Learn and master guitar, Guitar method one, Guitar Magic III, to name a few. I have learned a lot from these programs especially Learn and master guitar. I practice two three hrs. daily. The repetition can be pretty boring. When I was surfing and found JamPlay I didn't expect much, There are so many sites that say they can teach you how to pay guitar, but I have found that you have to already know how play guitar to understand what they are talking about after a couple of lesson. I want to tell you I am really glad I tried JamPlay! I have taking lessons from Jim Deeming, and he has made the learning process so much more interesting and he gives practice information that I don't think you you will find anywhere else. I'm only on the twelfth lesson so far, and I have greater understanding how music works. I already knew how read music and know the notes on first position and some bar chords, haven't learned tab yet. I'm not trying to blow my horn about what I know, what I trying to say is with all practice and lessons I have in the past, it wasn't until I joined JamPlay and I started taking lessons from Jim Deeming that it all starting making sense, now I have got my enthusiasm back and can't wait to get to the next lesson. I hope the other instructors are as informative, when I get to them. I also like to say my guitar stays in tune, with minimum tweaking since I followed Jim Deeming instructions on how to string a guitar.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND JAMPLAY!
Mohamad I."..Very impressed..."
Jamplay Staff, I have to tell you, I'm very happy with the idea of your website. So far I've been listening to Marc's acoustic lessons and they're very helpful, Marc knows how to successfully convey ideas at appropriate times which makes him a good teacher. So basically so far so good. Very impressed.
" . . . JAMPLAY ROCKS!!!The lessons are simple and easy to understand and ive have really enjoyed this site..My brother gave me the subscription for my birthday and i think its the best gift i have been giving in a long time..Thanks so much for your site..Keep up the great work!!"
Carl R."..Your web site with the help of Jim are making things easy, pleasant and fun.."
I just wanted to respond to you folks and applaud you on a job very well done. I am currently going through the basics with Jim Deeming although this is not my first time playing guitar, this is the first time I'm taking it seriously, and your web site with the help of Jim are making things easy, pleasant and fun. So thank you very much you can be assured that I will be here for quite some time.
Rob D."..I'm learning a great deal.."
I don't know if you read my profile: I played the guitar on and off over the years, more or less playing rhythm. My niece asked me to teach her son some chords, I said yes but he would be better off taking lessons. Expense for this was a problem so I checked out the internet and found JamPlay. I liked it so much I recommended it to my niece for her Son. He subscribed as I did and we both take lessons together. Once a week we meet at my house to check our progress. The problems we work out together. I was always interested in finger picking so this program is great for me. So far I'm enjoying my lesson and I'm learning a great deal. Great Program!
Al S."..You are head and shoulders above your competition! Keep up the great work! .."
Greetings! I just wanted to tell you how much I think of your site and it's teachers! JamPlay is the best! I love your site - I am subscribed to 2 others - but yours is my 'home' and you are head and shoulders above your competition! Keep up the great work!
Michael F."..This is a great site!.."
This is a great site! I am 42yrs old and I have been trying to teach myself to play Guitar for a couple of years now, with minimal luck. I learned techniques in the first lesson that I could not have found teaching myself. I was reluctant at first to pay for an internet course due to past experiences with online college and the current state of the economy, but the price was fair and the content of your site is vast. I am currently taking the beginners course by Steve Eulberg and he is highly professional and very informative. Thank you for the outstanding work on this site and please keep up the good work.
Bob H."..I am enjoying every minute of my membership!.."
Dear Jam Play...
I am enjoying every minute of my membership !! The site is incredible. Its easy, has so many good choices, and I very much enjoy the printable lesson for further studies and homework.
Jerod"..JamPlay was exactly what I was looking for, greatest tool for learning to play the guitar on the planet if you ask me, I will be a loyal and long time member! .."
Honestly I have tweeted and commented on FaceBook about JamPlay and how completely totally freaking awesome it is! You guys did an absolutely incredible job! The layout of your site is awesome, the group of instructors you put together are all amazing, and the interface and videos run perfectly and are just done so well! I literally learned more in a weekend about playing the guitar than I did in nearly a year of private guitar lessons. Not that my instructor was bad, he was great but it is the sheer access of info, everyone learns different for me I needed theory and in just a weekend of learning why chords were what they were, how scales work and why, how to build cords, etc., I have progressed so much. Also for me I always had such a hard time with my right hand and strumming patterns and frankly never got consistent or good info on various patterns, techniques on holding pick, exercises to improve and how certain patterns are used...it has helped me so much. Thank you, JamPlay was exactly what I was looking for, greatest tool for learning to play the guitar on the planet if you ask me, I will be a loyal and long time member!
Julie R."..I appreciate your customer friendly web site.."
I have been enjoying my lessons. I've been playing guitar for a while, but I started at the beginning of the lesson set anyway (Jim Deeming) - and I've still been learning a lot of good and new things. I appreciate the short segments in the lessons because I often only have a short amount of time available and I can divide them into parts. I appreciate your customer friendly web site, which always lets you know where important information is located.
We found your web page because my husband wanted to see if I could learn to play "Alice's Restaurant." It's going well and I'm pleased that we found a lot more too.
Michele"..After a couple of years of taking lessons from a local teacher, JAMPLAY is my ticket to learning what really interests me!.."
The JAMPLAY web site is terrific. I feel that it's doing everything that could be expected to help me progress learning the guitar. I have recommended the site to everyone that I meet who is trying to learn. After a couple of years of taking lessons from a local teacher, JAMPLAY is my ticket to learning what really interests me. Thank you.
