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.
Dale K."..Thank you for the great quality and for the in-depth instruction.."
I'm enjoying it immensely. I am 50 years old, have a degree in music education, and I have been a guitar teacher for 11 years now. I have been playing for about 35 years. I joined JamPlay to improve my skills in the different genres and, honestly, to pick the brains of your teachers for teaching tips. I plan to view every lessons from Phase I up. My youngest son, who is 9, and I are enjoying the videos. Thank you for the great quality and for the in-depth instruction.
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.
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.
Tim O."..Your service, your website is "totally awesome"!.."
You sent me a welcome email and offered for me to comment on my experience thus far. Thus far, I cannot over-emphasize how impressed I am with your service! This is an amazing website. What a gift in this day and age to have a resource like yours available for someone like me just starting to learn to play the guitar. Your service, your website is "totally awesome"! Thank you so much for your hard work, professionalism, and clear commitment to excellence. All of this for only $19 a month!!! WOW. Thank you SO much. Please feel free to quote me!
Greg J.".. I'm starting at the beginning and I couldn't be happier!.."
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 and I couldn't be happier (except for the sore fingers :) 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!
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.
Ross H."....not often you purchase something and find that it actually exceeds your expectations...."
I don't have any questions but did want to pass along that I'm very impressed with JamPlay and Steve Eulberg in particular. It's not often anymore that the you purchase something and then find that it actually exceeds your expectations. So I'm very pleased so far.
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!)...
Absolutely amazing!!! I am on lesson 5 with Steve. He is great, I really
understand what he says. He is a really good teacher! I wish I had done
this 5 years ago!!!!!! (I'm sure there was no JamPlay back then...)
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
R. B."..Steve has a great sense of humor and does a superb job explaining concepts..."
I recently registered with Jamplay and knew nothing about playing the guitar. I chose to begin with Steve Eulberg, and so far I am having a great time! Steve has a great sense of humor and does a superb job explaining concepts. I'm so pleased with this program and am relieved that I can learn guitar at my own pace and in my own home. Thanks!
Gilles L."..I am more than satisfied.."
I have just started the beginner series with jamplay and I have taken lesson one on one in the past but I am enjoying the teacher and the lessons they provide a lot more with jamplay. I find your approach as well as the format very well done and entertaining. The quality of instructors is very good and their approach as well as their teaching methods are great and unintimidating. They make you feel good about where you are and are very encouraging. I am more then satisfied and will definately recommend this site to all the people I know that are looking for quality as well as a fun way to learn how to play.
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.
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!
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.
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
Cher"..My only complaint is that I can't stay home and practice all day.."
G'day, I couldn't be happier with Jamplay. The video quality is excellent. The lessons are exactly what I had hoped for. The site is easy peasy to navigate. Steve Eulberg is an amazing teacher. My only complaint is that I can't stay home and practice all day...........I have to go to work to pay for the beautiful guitar I bought myself. Ha Ha. I will be recommending JamPlay to all my mates.
" . . . 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!!"
Bill"..I believe this is the absolute best site for guitar students..."
I am commenting here to tell you and everyone at JamPlay that I believe this is the absolute best site for guitar students. I truly enjoy learning to play the guitar on JamPlay.com. Yes, I said the words, "enjoy learning." It is by far the best deal for the money.
Catherine M."..I am telling all my friends about JamPlay.."
I wanted to tell Steve, after Lesson Four, how excited I am. I have gotten more out of your lessons Steve, than I did with half a year of guitar lessons. Okay, I'm ready to sign up for a year...
Thank you so much! I am telling all my friends about JamPlay. They are passing it on to their children and grandchildren.
I played piano years ago, and now I play keyboard. I started guitar (first on my own with books, then with a teacher) over a year ago. I bought an acoustic guitar and later an electric. I really want to play Santana, etc., but was getting nowhere. I ALMOST gave up guitar until I happened across your site looking for sheet music on the Internet. Thank goodness.
I have to say, even my husband (and he's not one to compliment lightly) thinks your site is great!
Thanks so much. I'm looking forward to this adventure.
P.S. I have your tuner on my Bookmarks. I really believe it's helped my tuning ability. Today, after I used your tuner, I tuned my guitar again with my electric tuner and I was pretty right on. Your tuner is a great tool!
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.
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!
Di C."..I LOVE your site!!!!.."
Hi JamPlay team. Just wanted to let you know that so far I LOVE your site!!!! I've been playing for 30+ years and have never had a formal lesson. I started when I had a brain injury and my mother thought it would be good therapy for me. I have recovered, and so will my guitar now that I have found you :) Cheers from Australia.
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.
Charity S."..Love the lessons! .."
I am really enjoying the lessons. Steve Eulberg, is a great instructor. I play for at least one hour every night (if not more), and this weekend I seriously played for over 12 hours. Love the lessons!
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
Ellen E."..I was amazed at the amount of lessons that have things I want to know..."
Thank you. I want to tell you that your web site design is absolutely great. I knew what I was looking at, I could figure out where I wanted to go. I was amazed at the amount of lessons that have things I want to know.
I signed up for the monthly membership the first time I visited the site.
The video answer question section is beyond anything I expected.
I watched the Jim Deeming concert and couldn't turn it off.
Thank you for quality like this and I appreciate that the teachers and their humor.
Good Luck to you all. I will tell my friends about your web site.
Ron B."..I am really enjoying the different styles and tutors.."
Hi JamPlay I thought I would save some money by choosing an online guitar tutor and found you are one of the best. I have been trying to play for some time now but want to move on. So far I am going through all your beginner sessions and am finding it very useful as a refresher but hope to move on to the second phase before too long. Oh by the way I am really enjoying the different styles and tutors, it makes it fun and challenging. Thanks
mchaf".. This website is simply superb and I was so impressed I signed up for a year within minutes of my first visit..."
I want to take this opportunity to say hello and express my thanks to the JamPlay staff and community. This website is simply superb and I was so impressed I signed up for a year within minutes of my first visit. I picked up the guitar a few years ago but my study and practice was limited to about one year at that time. I was fortunate to try several guitars, including several electric and acoustic models from friends who play in a band, and ultimately settled on a Ovation Legend and a fingerpicking playing style.
As is probably the case for most, life just gets in the way sometimes and I let myself get out of a routine and while I would pick up the guitar almost daily to just play some chords, I wasn't progressing in skill. Eventually, the guitar ended up in a corner and has been there for the last 6+ months. Now that my two kids have been asking for guitars (ages 8 and 10), I have made a re-commitment to significantly improve my skill and knowledge of the guitar in 2008 and share this wonderful instrument with them.
Another goal of mine is to master six holiday songs by Christmas next year and record them on CD as a gift to family and friends, including a very challenging song (Cannon in D), which I may ask JamPlay to help teach me. I want to thank JamPlay for making available this fantastic tool to myself and other aspiring guitar players and for providing me the opportunity to chase my goals with a re-newed enthusiasm and motivation. Here's to 2008! =)
Jo M."..I have to say this is one of the best laid out websites I have ever come across, anywhere!.."
As one who has built a few websites sites and is very particular on continuity & usability, I have to say this is one of the best laid out websites I have ever come across, anywhere! Unlike a lot of resources out there that that have similar content, yours is very easy to find ones way around. Everything follows a logical progression and the content & features are about as comprehensive as you could wish for. You have all done an outstanding job. Well done and I will definitely be renewing my subscription at the end of the month. An outstanding product in all areas.
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.
Scott"..I must say though, Jamplay is amazing..."
I do not have any questions so far. I must say though, Jamplay is amazing. I'm using it to get back into guitar at my own schedule, and it lets me choose what i want to learn, tells me how hard it is, and teaches it so well. I managed to learn how to tap guitar solos with such a simple technique, and trained for a simple 20 mins with the exercises you provided. I'm very happy i bought a subscription, and when i'm more financially stable, i may even upgrade to yearly ;) Thanks for checking in, hope the good work keeps up :D
Neil H."..I am already totally inspired by the JamPlay guitar instructors!.."
Am so glad I have signed up to JamPlay! I have been playing electric guitar for past few years and felt that I have been getting nowhere. I am already totally inspired by the JamPlay guitar instructors and am sure these lessons will help me improve in my guitar playing. Many thanks!!
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 :)
Max T."..I'm on there every day, for at least 3-4 hours.."
Thanks for running such a great site. I'm on there every day, for at least 3-4 hours and definitely getting a LOT out of my membership. Working with the lessons from Orville Johnson has been wonderful. This is far and away much better than taking expensive weekly guitar lessons at a local music store. I have no complaints whatsoever. I know my quarterly membership will keep me busy for the next 3 months! Max T.
Jesse G."..I have not this much fun in a long time!.."
To whom it may concern,
I have not this much fun in a long time! I am indeed very pleased with my decision to become a member of Jamplay. I have been very cautious of some online memberships that make promises only to disappoint but Jamplay keeps impressing and even surprising. I have recommended it to my friends and they too are impressed and interested in membership. A good product sells it self and a satisfied customer is certainly the best advertising. As a Quality Manager in the Automotive Industry I am impressed with your strategy and commitment to delivering a fine product / service. Thanks and I look forward to mastering the guitar with you and the other members of Jamplay.
Justin M."..It is an EXCELLENT tool.."
Greetings, I felt it necessary to convey my deepest appreciation for Jamplay. It is an EXCELLENT tool and I have been very satisfied thus far.
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!
Kristofer Hamrick"..It's like nothing I've ever encountered as far as it's content is concerned.."
It's like nothing I've ever encountered as far as it's content is concerned. Just this morning I went into a music store and somehow I ended up on the "musical instruction DVD" aisle only to become suddenly more grateful for the site's existence. For music+text combos about 90 minutes in length and with focus on a single style of music they were asking about 40$. Compare that you JamPlay's 4 instructors, each with hours of instruction and pages of printable reference material, encompassing all the essential genres for less than half that; I can't help but feel like I got a great deal.
Doug"..what a joy it has been.."
I have nearly completed a one month subscription and just had to write in to say what a joy it has been having access to both your video instructions and your highly qualified live instructors. It was very easy to decide to renew under the one year plan. Congratulations on a well built and executed concept! Doug
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.
Jeff"..Nothing made a connection until I found Jim Deeming at JamPlay.."
I just wanted to let you know that this is what I was looking for. I bought a starter guitar to try to learn and I bought some books but nothing made a connection until I found Jim Deeming at Jam Play. I had previously signed up for another web site and the guy could hardly talk because he was so nervous with the camera and he jumped all over the place. Nothing made sense to me and I was getting discouraged. The video quality was poor and it took forever to load. Good thing it didn't cost much because it's not worth much. The videos you have are outstanding and Jim is great! I am sure that all of the other instructors are just as good but, I chose to start with Jim because he has a "I want to teach you what I Love to do" appeal. I should be practicing but I just wanted to let you know that I like the site so far and say THANKS!
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.
Beau"..I COMPLETELY love it!.."
I found your website last night, and COMPLETELY love it! I have also already showed some experienced guitar playing friends, and they were so impressed they are thinking about joining just to hone their skills. I have been playing about a month, and have been teaching myself with the help of friends and free online video's. But, I came across this website and decided, although skeptical, to give it a shot. I learned more in the 4 hours I played on your site than I have in the last month of "teaching myself." Im currently watching Steve Eulberg's video's for beginners, and even though many of the chords I already knew, it was a great learning experience. Anyway, I will be a frequent visitor and hope to show you guys some skills in a few months. Thanks again for the awesome value and great website!
S Claudino"..I immediately subscribed and was again impressed with the multitude of options and tools you guys provide..."
I just wanted to say that I am looking forward to my lessons. It all started with a video I found on youtube. it was your teacher Mark explaining how to play the song Iris but the Goo Goo Dolls. I was so impressed by the short lesson I actually visited the site, something I rarely do. After browsing it I immediately subscribed and was again impressed with the multitude of options and tools you guys provide. I've taught myself for about 4 years now. I have tried professional (and terribly expensive), in person lessons and quit after one month. I've tried books that now collect dust on my shelf. I've looked through tabs online for specific songs and only find occasional success. Honestly, I feel with this site I have a chance to continue playing, learning and improving. I'm looking forward to my time with you guys. Thank you for the site!
Stanley D.".....Jamplay is FANTASTIC!!!.."
What can I say, Jamplay is FANTASTIC!!! The best way for anyone who wants to learn how to play the guitar is to hook up with Jamplay and don't quit.Great teachers, excellent video instruction, and illustrations. Huge community of other students learning the guitar. Can practice anytime, day or night.
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
Zachary Carter"..It's truly one of the best investments I have ever experienced.."
JamPlay.com is the best guitar site I have ever been to. It offers supreme customer service. I also love how your additions of lessons to the site are almost everyday. It's wonderful! It's truly one of the best investments I have ever experienced. Now because of JamPlay.com my guitar skills are improving significantly! Thank you!!!
Maleka B"..thanks for having amazing instructors.."
I just wanted to let you guys know I was very happy with the bass lessons. Evan Brewer was made for JamPlay. I look forward to any new lessons he has. I am sure you already know but he is an excellent teacher. Very knowledgable and able to pass that knowledge on. Again thanks for having amazing instructors. I cannot wait until there are more lessons as well as live lessons available for the bass.
