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.
Ansen S"..JamPlay is my favorite site..."
JamPlay is my favorite site. I look forward to getting on everyday, and exploring new lessons from teachers I've yet to learn from, and those that i have watched and liked. Thank you for such a great site. :)
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!
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!
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.
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
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
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!
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.
Jan".. I have learned more already than I thought was possible..."
Hi. I just want to say how impressed I am about JamPlay.com
I have only been a member for a short time, but I am already very impressed about your web site. You have a huge variety of lessons and teachers who speak a language everyone understands. The lessons I have seen so far has made me understand music and guitar playing in a whole new way. There is a progression that everyone will benefit from. I have learned more already than I thought was possible.
I just want to say thanks and PLEASE keep up the good work. Everyone who wants to improve their skills should be a member. It does after all cost less than dollar per day. Skip one Coca cola and start playing.
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.
Don M"..This site is exactly what I wanted.."
I stopped playing as it was such a hassle going to lessons after coming in from work
This site is exactly what I wanted so I have dusted off the guitar case, bought some new strings and intend to resume lessons commencing this weekend.
I have also recommended the site to some of my friends and I am sure that they too will sign up.
Congratulations, it is the best Guitar teaching site by far.
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.
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!
Penny M."..Thank you for offering this wonderful teaching site..."
I am totally satisfied with your site. I am a piano/guitar teacher and I am learning about Bluegrass. I really love the approach that my teacher uses.
Thank you for offering this wonderful teaching 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.
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!
John R."..You're never too old to start.."
I find the lessons excellent. I am currently following Jim Deeming because I am a bad fingerpicker. I find his lessons addictive, helpful, easy to follow and enjoyable.
I have also looked at Steve Eulberg and find him equally interesting.
I think I will get my monies worth out of the annual subscription in a month at the rate I am going!
Thank you and well done
PS You're never too old to start.
Barry N."..I am hooked on Jamplay.."
Yes I am hooked on Jamplay. It is fantastic to be able to have lessons whenever I want. I have started with Hawkeye and am getting into the blues. He is a great teacher - and he responds to the many comments and questions he gets. It is amazing to think that I am down here in little old New Zealand getting lessons daily from an American blues man - the power of the internet!
Mark S.".. Now at 55 tears old, my dream of playing well is becoming a reality..."
I love Jamplay. My dad bought me a guitar before I was a teenager. But without good instruction, it was more of a dust collector than anything else. Now at 55 tears old, my dream of playing well is becoming a reality. My desire to play is driven by by a need to express myself in song and with my fine Martin HD28. I made a promiseto my HD28, and to myself, that I would do my very best to play sweet music. This was my own justification for purchasing such a fine guitar. Thank you for offering this great service over the internet. I am pleased with how far I have come with my music since I purchased my guitar on December 14, 2010. And, I feel very fortunate to have instructors like Steve Eulberg (hope I spelled it correctly) available @ Jamplay.
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!!!
Mike P.".. Many thanks for offering such a terrific approach to learning mastery of an instrument..."
I am 60 years old. During the earlier years of my life I played various brass instruments from elementary school through college. I played with the Kansas City Youth Symphony, Starlight Theater Orchestra, and soloed for a season with the Kansas City Philharmonic Orchestra when I was a Junior in high school. I still hold my high school's record for the most blue ribbons at the State of Missouri solo music contests won by an individual.
I am not bragging here, but setting a frame of reference for my comments which follow. You can imagine from this pedigree how many hours I have spent in private lessons with professional musicians.
This brings me to the guitar side of life. My grandfather gave me an old Gibson steel string when I was 9. He taught me basic chords, to run right hand base with my thumb, and to pick out rhythm on the upper register strings with my three fingers. I never learned to read guitar music ! I just had a pretty good ear, and picked up what I could during the hay day of folk music with Peter, Paul and Mary, Smother's Brothers, et al.
As I got older, I got bored playing chords and singing to myself and playing background chords at church. I love guitar music, Celtic, Windham Hill, and I think Leo Kotkke is a guitar gift from another planet. In my personal playing I could never figure out how to add a real melody line like these guys do to my own playing. I took about a half dozen lessons each from about 4 different instructors to get this added to my playing style. No luck. So I put the thing in it's case and banished the whole works to the closet.
I haven't picked up the guitar for about 8 years. Through a series of coincidences I was presented with your web site and a classical guitar on Thanksgiving Day. I selected Jim Deeming and the Fingerstyle program. After about three days, I am with him through Phase 2, Lesson 5. I can even play the whole rip from the prelude to 'Leader of the Band' , following Jim's excellent tutoring. This is a musical miracle !
Can't say enough good things about Mr. Deeming, and about your program.
Many thanks for offering such a terrific approach to learning mastery of an instrument. Even for old duffers like me !
With very best regards,
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!
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!
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!
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.
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
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.
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!
Lisa F."..The teachers are outstanding!.."
When I first signed up for your service I was a little nervous about what I was paying for. Since I've started, I have to say that this is worth every cent.
Your teaching tools are invaluable. Everything from the Chord Sheets to the Metronome for those of us who are cheap have been tremendous in helping me learn guitar playing.
Also, the teachers are outstanding!
Everything I was looking for in lessons is right here. Thank you.
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.
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.
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,
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.

Customer Service Satisfaction
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.
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!
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.
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!
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
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!!
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
Johnny B."..I"ve learned so many new things and am still learning a lot!.."
I must say I really love JamPlay! I"ve learned so many new things and am still learning a lot! JamPlay made my life worth living again and I enjoy the wide range of lessons and teachers for such an affordable price. Since I don´t have the money to have private teacher this is the perfect solution for me.
Karen H"..Steve has re-instilled the passion I once had for learning guitar, and has brought back my passion for learning..."
Hello, I just want to say that I was really struggling with some concepts as a beginning acoustic guitar player. I searched the web and tried you tube lessons with no real forward progress. Tried books and dvd's with minimal satisfaction. I found you by web search and I'm real glad I did!! I will likely cancel my quarterly membership and upgrade to yearly!! I began the basic course from Steve Eulberg, and have to say this guy is great. I connected instantly, his instruction is fantastic. I cant say enough about how his lessons are benefiting me, and how pleased I am to have signed up with you. Steve has re-instilled the passion I once had for learning guitar, and has brought back my passion for learning.
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.
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
