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!
Diane"..I am having fun and enjoying the process..."
I have had no technical difficulties whatsoever, (I'm using an imac 20" g5, and comcast broadband) and I am working my way through Steve's beginners lessons. Steve is excellent, and the video quality is very good. It will take me some time to get everything out of the video lessons, but I am having fun and enjoying the process.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
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.
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.
Robert Thorhallsson"..it's hard not to get excited about learning more and more about guitar playing.."
I just joined the site like a day ago - and I feel the urge to send you a letter to describe my first impressions of the site.
It's simply amazing. The amount of work put into the site is incredible and the layout of the site is so well done. Granted I haven't started learning, but when everything is so well laid out for you it's hard not to get excited about learning more and more about guitar playing.
I have subscribed to one of these guitar learning sites online before. I was not impressed, only few of the lessons contained video clips and the teacher was way to dry for my taste. I think I visited the site like 2-3 times and simply gave up. I'm very assured that this won't be the case now!
The front-end of the site is very detailed and contains alot of content. Not enough to skip the bill - but has loads to get a guy like me excited about the program. I look forward to improve my skills here and be a part of this wonderful community you guys created.
F. N.".. i'm very happy with your services.."
Just wanted to let you know that i'm very happy with your services. I have been looking for a good guitar lessons provider and have not been satisfied with anything until i found JamPlay.com.
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.
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!
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: $20 a month seems more then fair for what's offered.
Guillaume Tessier"..Guillaume Tessier.."
I just bought my Godin Freeway guitar, and I have never played guitar before. I didn't know where to start, then I found www.jamplay.com . It's AMAZING. Thanks for the great help you provide to us, it is REALLY worth 20$/month!!!!!
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.
Matthew R"..I would just like to say how amazing your site is!!!.."
I would just like to say how amazing your site is!!!! Ive only been a member for just over a day and i am already picking up skills and things i didnt know i could do as a intermediate guitarist!!!!!
thanks sooo much!! great site!!!!!!
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.
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!
Kevin H."..I am really loving your site..."
I am really loving your site. I have been trying to learn to play guitar for the past 5 years or so, and this is the first time that I really feel like I have a structured routine, which is where I learn best. Great lessons, great community. I love listening to Marc Lincoln's live chat sessions that he has done over the past few days (I hope these continue from him and others), and I have really got a lot out of reading other people's posts and answers on the forums. I have settled on using Steve Eulberg's phase 1 lessons after trying everyone's. The others were great, but Steve seems to explain things in a way that makes more sense to me quicker.
My fingers hurt but my motivation has never been higher!
Ken D."..your site has revolutionized my guitar playing.."
I just want to tell you that your site has revolutionized my guitar playing. I'm trying to do 2-3 lessons per day and they are just so enjoyable and so very well done. Wow!
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.
Tim H."..I will finally be able to learn to play the guitar.."
Where have you been? It is about time someone put a web site together like this. I will finally be able to learn to play the guitar with the resources necessary. I have been trying a lifetime to learn how to play and always missed lessons and interest due to travel and bad teachers. From what I can see, you have eliminated both those problems for me.
I will sing and play praises to you where ever I go in the world.
With the greatest thanks,
Edward R."..Its exactly what I have been needing.."
I love JamPlay! Its exactly what I have been needing to advance my guitar playing. Your site provides so much that I am sure I will be a long term member. Thanks to all the folks at JamPlay for putting together such a great site!
Attila"..This site is AMAZING!.."
I'm a beginner guitar player, so I started with the "phase 1". This site is AMAZING! So easy to follow my progress with the "my progress report", and the lessons are easy to understand. I'm really really lucky that I' found Jamplay in time. This is the best guitar site on the internet!
Thank you, Jamplay!
Attila, from Hungary
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.
Steve M"..So far my boy has had a real blast.."
Hello JamPlay People.
Joined the site for my 10 year old son.
We have real trouble locating a guitar teacher locally so did some online research and found you! So far my boy has had a real blast. He is just past beginner stage and finds the videos really good to follow. Already managed a credible rendition of a couple of tunes.
Keep up the good work.
From a non-musical Dad.
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.
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.
Duayne"..All the instructors are awesome!!.."
Love the site and the community.All the instructors are awesome!! Learning alot faster than I ever have, I wish your sight was available 20 years ago,I would be a rock star!! Maybe I will be who knows...
Thanks Jam Play instructors and staff,
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.
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 :)
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.
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
Jeanne C."..The content of your site is the best!.."
JamPlay is fantastic. Everything works well. The Instructors I've met and I am doing lessons with are enthusiastic, knowledgeable and helpful. The lesson formats work well and love being able to write notes on the notes tab, I use the comments tab and the supplemental material. The Chat Sessions are wonderful and such a treat. And am using the forum as well as the "tools". The content of your site is the best! Another outstanding feature are the steps you have taken not to be like a lot of sites by making sure we know where everything is. Making sure we know where to cancel membership (can't imagine ever doing that). Making sure we know how to contact the staff. I have the sense that you not only care about what you do but care about your instructors and us - the membership. I like it.
Jeremy T."..I am freaking loving it.."
I am freaking loving it. Honestly. I have already shown it to two friends who are now planning to sign up as well. I have learned more in a few weeks of hard work than I had in the last five years or playing. I have an extremely erratic work schedule that has prevented me from signing up for regular classes, and jamplay has been the perfect solution for me. Thank you for an amazing website.
Scott M."..you ALL deserve an "ATTA-BOY" .."
OH MAN!!!! Am I glad you popped up on my screen. I went to your info home page & after listening to testiminonials & teachers I immidiatly joined & am I ever greatful I did, ( I've had several friends join as well). I can't believe how reasonable your lessons are & you offer unlimited access as well. I don't know who's idea this was, but you ALL deserve an "ATTA-BOY"
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.
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!
Ken"..Great site for music lovers.."
It's great and Jim is a terrific communicator! I've been playing a guitar for forty years and I must be a really slow learner because all I've been able to play are chords to accompany my not so singable voice. And just after three days I'm playing Wayfaring Stranger like a pro! But...........my fingers are killing me! Great site for music lovers and those that endeavor to finally learn and start playing really well. Thanks
Richard Donoghue"..I am so HAPPY! HAPPY SPRING YOU MADE MY LIFE HAPPIER!.."
FIRST EMAIL: Wow I say it again Wow IO have taken lessons before and just got frustrated! after 2 days with this program i am playing a song!thank you thank you thank you! I am so HAPPY! HAPPY SPRING YOU MADE MY LIFE HAPPIER!
SECOND EMAIL: one more time wow funny thing i am hosting a reggae fest tomorrow I am going to play my little song they will get A KICK! CAUSE I AM ALWAYS behind the scene! believe me you touched a person that will promote you!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
