Gary C."..I look forward to advancing my guitar skills using JamPlay.."
Dear JamPlay I am really enjoying the program. Lessons are easy to understand and the instructors are very professional and knowledgeable. I look forward to advancing my guitar skills using JamPlay. Thank you.
Vern S."..This site has ignited the fire again and fired up I am!!!.."
To all concerned,
It is my opinion that this site is by far the most comprehensive guitar instructional site that I have ever run across on the web, BAR NONE!!! I am extremely impressed and will be a member for years to come. I say that because I can see that there is so much knowledge to be learned here already and the knowledge base will only get larger as time goes on. I can't say enough about it and will be spreading the word for sure!
I just wanted to send the entire staff and instructors a huge thank you for all the hard work it takes to initialize, maintain and become established as the #1 site guitar instructional site on the web. I had gotten to the point where I felt like I was just spinning my wheels, but this site has ignited the fire again and fired up I am!!!
Again, thank you very much...
Paul L."..The benefits of the site have so far exceeded my expectations.."
Dear all at Jamplay, Just a quick note to say how useful I have found the site. I have been playing the guitar for around 20 years (am of good intermediate standard) but have learnt more in the last few days watching the phase 2 lessons than in the last 10 years. The supplemental lesson materials are also very good. The benefits of the site have so far exceeded my expectations. Regards, Paul L.
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!
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.
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.
Lee Foster"..I can only say that since joining i have not been able to put down my guitar.."
I can only say that since joining i have not been able to put down my guitar (it has been on its stand for almost 2 years) Now has new strings, cleaned up and rockin, the lessons are brilliant, the tutors are switched on, articulate and very cool at getting the message over, (plus all amazing players)
I will be busy for the next 12 months and my playing will be live up to my expectations (i hope) lol. Once again thanks for an awesome site.
Greg J"..With Jamplay I can fit in a random session when I have time and I can go at my own pace.."
I'm a fifty eight year old newbie who owns a guitar which has been sitting untouched in a corner for about seven years now. Last weekend I got inspired to pick it up and finally learn how to play after watching an amazing Spanish guitarist on TV. So, here I am. I'm starting at the beginning with Steve Eulberg and I couldn't be happier (except for the sore fingers :) Some day I'm going to play like Steve! I'm self employed with a hectic schedule. With Jamplay I can fit in a random session when I have time and I can go at my own pace, rewinding and replaying the videos until I get it. This is a very enjoyable diversion from my work yet I still feel like I'm accomplishing something worthwhile. Thanks a lot, Greg
Fredy J"..Your service that you provide to guitarists like me is of a very high standard..."
Your service that you provide to guitarists like me is of a very high standard. I have played and stopped playing guitar several times in my life. Now that I have found your site I am quite confident to get a new thrill at it and finally fill in the missing parts in my basics which always let me stop playing, leaving me more or less frustrated. Currently I have started to go through the basic lessons of Steve Eulberg and Jim Deeming as I am not a gifted singer and like to play more instrumental. I am a big fan of Tommy Emmanuel and also Chet Atkins, Merle Haggart etc. Although I know I will never reach a level of such virtuosity your lessons and especially the two teachers mentioned help me to get through all the struggles. I hope you understand my English as I am a german speaking Swiss. What I try to say is simply: You all at Jamplay do a really great job!
Hans Julius"..JamPlay is something I have been looking for and eventually waiting for, for many, many years now.."
JamPlay is something I have been looking for and eventually waiting for, for many, many years now. I'm totally impressed with what I've seen and tried so far, and it seems you've really put much thought and work into this. The website seems to be well tested and technically flawless. Everything looks very professional.
As regards the material itself I've only just begun to watch Steve's stuff. I like his style very much, but I look forward to studying the others as well. I'm a singer myself, but often feel handicapped when trying to write songs, or when I want to perform solo. So thatÂ´s why I'm here.
I really hope you are here to stay and will multiply your number of members, the quality of the service demands it (and I demand it!)...
Francois"..That bottom- line support is what makes a real Company! Jamplay has another fan!!.."
It's clear Jamplay is very supportive to all customers! Your attention reflects well on Jamplay, and I will not hesitate to share my opinion. That bottom- line support is what makes a real Company! Jamplay has another fan!!
Patty D."..I am enjoying your site immensely.."
I am enjoying your site immensely. It is well organized, comprehensive, and most of all a lot of options and information. I stopped private lessons to join JamPlay and this is by far a better choice for me. Thank you for providing such a valuable service.
Anonymous"..In all honesty, I like everything about jamplay and can think of nothing I don't like.."
Comments after a few days. Signing up was easy -- didn't have any problems. Actually, I put in my credit card number wrong at first, but it was all setup to try it again, so that went smoothly. I like that it went right to creating my profile and then right to the main page of jamplay -- felt like it was guiding me through things. The layout of the site is awesome: I instantly knew what I needed to click on to go where... In all honesty, I like everything about jamplay and can think of nothing I don't like The layout of the site makes complete sense 2 seconds after you see it. The video quality is high. I use the progress bar for the lessons to see where I left off and what I need to work more on. The few times I've thought "I could use this", I looked and it was there (like when I was wishing I had a diagram of a chord Steve was using, and it was there in the page below the video or in the supplemental section). Even the price seems great: $20 a month seems more then fair for what's offered.
Dave L"..I LOVE IT!!!.."
I LOVE IT!!! I love it so much that I have cancelled my memberships to some other sites and haven't visited a free membership site either. I am a 67 year old beginner. As you guys know, not everyone learns the same way or likes a particular teaching style. Jam Play has lots of beginning instructors to choose from. So far I LIKE THEM ALL!!. Amazing! Each one has a little different style and approach and so if I didn't follow a skill taught by one instructor, I just try another. IT'S GREAT! My favorites so far are; Steve Eulberg, Eve Goldberg and Orville Johnson. You guys have really got this thing dialed in...keep up the good work.
thanks, Dave Lotridge, in the middle of nowhere, South Texas.
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.
Al"..I am truly enjoying your website and services so far!!!.."
Hi - i am truly enjoying your website and services so far!!! I have been playing for awhile so am not a real beginner so to say; however the lessons i have been through so far are great. They have opened a few doors and turned on the lights for sure. I have also learned a couple of new songs already in just two days. Thanks for a great site it truly is a huge help.
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.
Rob. E"..I expect that when my monthly subscription runs out, I'll be renewing it with a yearly subscription.."
It's even better than I expected. I put my guitar to one side while I watched through a few of Brad Henecke's lessons to see what was in store for me (I've watched up to lesson 20), and I must say that I'm very impressed. Even just watching Brad play has put plenty of fresh ideas into my head after many years of being 'stuck in a rut'. I'm really looking forward to going over the lessons again properly and rating myself for each lesson. I expect that when my monthly subscription runs out, I'll be renewing it with a yearly subscription, after all, learning guitar, no matter how experienced you are, is a never-ending process, so it stands to reason that my membership of Jamplay will be never ending.
The only complaint I have so far is that Brad Henecke won't send me that lovely guitar of his! (I've already got a Gibson SG Special...but hey...i'm a greedy bastard) :)
All in all...Jamplay rocks! So yeah, I'm very happy with it :)
Mike"..being able to log in when i have a few minutes is very useful.."
I'm finding the lessons very useful, I've played bass for years but i guess have always been a frustrated 6 string wannabe. Having the time to practice is the biggest problem. but being able to log in when i have a few minutes is very useful. Thanks.
Ronald G."..I love JamPlay because it is easy to use, and the lessons are taught by lessons which build on each other in a way that is needed. .."
After being self taught for some years, I was struggling. I love JamPlay because it is easy to use, and the lessons are taught by lessons which build on each other in a way that is needed. Also I can choose a teacher that I think is more my style. This is not to take anything away from any other instructor because they are all very qualified. I started with Lisa Pursell, and love it because I'm a blues type of guy. In fact I caught her on a live chat the other day, and I was able to ask lesson questions. You can't beat that. I love JamPlay. thank you for everything.
Indigo B."..making my dream a reality!.."
It's going GREAT! I'm a work from home mom and would have a hard time getting to guitar lessons otherwise. I really love how organized the site is and I love the teachers. I'm practicing about every other day and making my dream a reality! THANKS
Phil E."..Its just what I need.."
Thank YOU, had a quick look at site and think its just what i need, Been playin' guitar for 40 years on and off and in bands and as I now have time want to learn to play better, looks like you guys will enable me to do that. All the best and very well done, phil.
Jeff C."..What a bargain!!!.."
I want to thank you for adding the almost daily live sessions. I especially enjoy the sessions with Mark Lincoln. I am basically a beginner but have received answers to questions that improved my learning curve greatly. Mark always brings up subjects that create a lot of enthusiasm and I always look forward to the next session. I take private lessons on the side and pay $20 for a half hour in which I get good instruction, but I won't give up my $20 per month Jamplay subscription where I get 3 hours of live interaction daily plus all the pre-recorded lessons; what a bargain!!! Great job; keep up the good work.
Pat A."..I simply LOVE jamplay!!.."
I simply LOVE jamplay!! It has been a very positive experience for me. This involves far more than just the lessons (as great as they are), but to the quick response to questions, the friendliness and helpfulness of the Jamplay community, and all of the bells and whistles. Everyone that I know or that I meet who has a guitar or has expressed an interest in learning about the guitar has heard my testimonial to your site. You guys and girls are great. If I sat down tonight and designed a site to be everything I wanted in a guitar site I could not do half as well. Thanks for doing such a great job! Pat
Randay"..I'll learn much more from the JamPlay instructors than by trying by myself or from my weekly private lessons.."
Since starting to use the site I find that it's very valuable. I have the feeling that I'll learn much more from the JamPlay instructors than by trying by myself or from my weekly private lessons. I am very motivated to learn and I can see that the resources at JamPlay are vast.
Charles J"..I'm having more fun than a barrel of monkeys!.."
Jessica Baron is a Hoot! I'm having more fun than a barrel of monkeys! In a month and three days I have learned to play two songs and I know 5 chords, and five strums! I am on Jamplay one to two hours a day.
Tammy"..Your system is awesome and your instructors are excellent.."
I just wanted to say that I love JamPlay! I've been trying to learn the guitar for years but no single video or DVD could hold my interest for more than a week before I got bored. I've been a member of JamPlay for two weeks and I've learned so much about the guitar. I cannot wait to learn even more. Your system is awesome and your instructors are excellent. I can learn at my own pace so I never become bored or frustrated. It's perfect for me! Thanks JamPlay!
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.
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.
Adam M"..you guys ROCK!!! .."
Hey JamPlay Staff! I joined Jamplay originally last year... but due to family issues had to suspend my account (really did not want to)... Just joined again and have been IMMENSELY enjoying the lessons with my instructor... With so many instructors to choose from I gravitated to Jim Deeming, his easy going style and personality makes him a nature fit for me (and we are about the same age :) )... we have interacted via the Video chat and boards and I honestly feel like he is MY personal instructor... Something I would have never though possible via a medium such as this... I have dabbled in guitar for many years but have never been as focussed as I am now... I am learning TONS and progressing farther than I ever have.. For everything on offer, the 20 dollar subscription is well worth it :) My guitar and I have been strangers over the years, but thanks to JamPlay and Jim Deeming, we are fast becoming best friends!! (Metaphorically speaking mind you... I don't talk to my guitar or anything... well not a lot.. anyway) :p Thanks again... you guys ROCK!!!
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!
Matthew B.".. I am improving with leaps and bounds.."
I have an in-home instructor that I spend a hour lesson with once a week. I've learned so much more in so less time just from the lessons on your web site. Mark Lincoln is my instructor. I am absorbing the knowledge like a sponge and loving every minute of it. I am improving with leaps and bounds. Please keep Mark around. Many thanks to Acoustic Guitar Magazine for providing the link to your site. I'm hooked! Thank you!
Raul R."..you never get bored.."
Hi JamPlay, I want to let you know that I am very happy with my subscription. I was almost ready to give up until I tried your amazing on-line classes. You have a first-class experience instructors faculty that is one of the best if not the best in the entire Internet. My special admiration for my instructor Jessica Baron. She is one in a million. She is so a delightful person, that you never get bored. Thanks again.
" . . . 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!!"
Jose O."..My skills are definitely improving.."
I just wanted to let you know that the classes are awesome. I been practicing for about a year without jamplay and still find the phase one lessons to be incredibly well. I am currently doing the Mark, David, and Jims Lessons. I practice about three hours everyday with eachday a new or different area of
concentration. I Just wanted to say that my skills are definitely improving and I think jamplay works for anyone.
Daniel"..I am already SUPER satisfied .."
Even though I haven't had all the time I've wanted, I have to tell you that I am already SUPER satisfied with my decision to join Jamplay. Just got off the live chat with Nick Kellie. Dude's fantastic.
Lessons are great, instructors are great, as far as the ones I've had time to check out.
Tools are great. The chord charts and scales are so easy to look up when I need a hint.
Don't know if any of my friends are taking my advice , but I'm telling everyone I know that plays, or is learning to play, to join this site.
My only problem is # of hours in a day. Wish I could quit my job and play all day.
Just wanted to let you know.
Martin D"..JamPlay is another American masterpiece and I am sure I will achieve my goal!.."
I have always admired the way Americans do things. Like tools,best in the world.Cars, fast and flashy, guitars, works of art, easy to play! I love Fender! I've been playing for many years, but never to the standard I would like. JamPlay is another American masterpiece and I am sure I will achieve my goal!
Wesley D."..Congratulations on making the BEST site around - hands down!.."
Wow guys I'm truly blown away! :) The site is absolutely incredible - it is without a doubt the best money I've spent online. Period! It truly is refreshing to know that even when the world has been so well connected (I live in Africa!) with every facet of any information available regarding absolutely anything one could hope to find in the form of the internet that one is still able to find absolute gems like jamplay.com. I can't believe I didn't find it earlier - I've been playing guitar for 6 years now (play professionally too) and this website has such an incredible wealth of information and invaluable insider tips into some of the intermediate to advanced guitar stuff. The site truly does cater for everyone - from the absolute noob right up to the elite. My excitement is so great, and the site so refreshing, that I feel like I've just picked up a guitar for the first time again! Congratulations on making the BEST site around - hands down!
Michelle Bonbright"..I FINALLY have a good way to learn & stay motivated.."
Hey guys I just wanted to shoot you over an email to thank you for the site. I was a little skeptical when joining & giving my credit card online...but now that I am a member I could not be happier. I FINALLY have a good way to learn & stay motivated. Learning with you guys is a blast!
Jason"..I can't wait to see what you guys are gonna teach me next!.."
I am truly impressed with what this website has to offer. I have taken private lessons to brush up on my technique, and at $20 for a half hour, wasted my money!
Jamplay is truly a great teaching site. I'm glad that the content actually changes, unlike most other sites. And not only that, but changes often!
Keep up the good work! I can't wait to see what you guys are gonna teach me next!
Pat A."..I recommend it to everyone I know!.."
FYI I am truly enjoying the site! I think that it is extremely well done. I'm recently disabled and am committed to learning how to play the guitar after picking it up and putting it down 100 times over the last 40 years. I've spent the last year wandering the Internet and ordering DVD's with Guitar Lessons trying and trying to grasp this wonderful instrument, to no avail. Your site was like a Godsend. The lesson structure is GREAT. Over the years I would hit a brick wall such as barre chords or theory and quit. Your instructors make these subjects so crystal clear and give concise lessons in how to conquer these issues.
All I can say is JamPlay is fantastic and I recommend it to everyone I know!!
Warren M"..JamPlay is excellent!.."
JamPlay is excellent! I love all aspects of the service. I could not be happier unless you added ukulele to the lessons :)
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!
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.
Angela O.".....it's put the joy back into playing again..."
Hi JamPlay, I just love the site. It's really helpful...even more so than some of the private lessons in the past. You have put together a powerful set of tools and the teachers are clear. Nice video shooting too. Glad to have found JamPlay and it's put the joy back into playing again. Angela
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 :)
Madeline"..So glad I found this instead of paying outrageous rates for thirty minute private lessons! .."
I'm really enjoying my membership with Jam Play! The instructors are very easy to follow and the cost is well worth it! So glad I found this instead of paying outrageous rates for thirty minute private lessons!
Mike H."..I feel like a 12 year old kid with a new guitar!.."
I am 66 years young and I still got it! I would have never known this if it had not been for Jamplay! I feel like a 12 year old kid with a new guitar! Ha! I cannot express enough how great you're website is! It is for beginners and advanced pickers! I am an advanced picker and thought I had lost it but thanks to you all, I found it again! Even though I only play by ear, I have been a member a whopping whole two weeks now and have already got Brent's country shuffle and country blues down and of course with embellishments. Thank you all for your wonderful program!
Charlie"..Keep on rocking!.."
I love your website! It's helped me out alot as a beginner, and I know I will learn even more as I become more experienced. The service is great and I couldn't be more pleased. Keep on rockin' JamPlay! I know I will!
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!
