D. Wallace"..I am amazed at how much I have learned.."
I've been a member for three days now and I am amazed at how much I have learned from Steve's Bluegrass lessons. And I haven't even completed all of the lessons yet! Your site is much better than the new fall TV season.
I am looking forward to starting on Phase I lesson one to unlearn and relearn and put some new life into my guitar playing. Thanks for a great site.
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!
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!
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!!!!!!
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
David M."..I enjoy using it everyday.."
I am a 45 year old man who never picked up any instrument up until 6 months ago when I decided to learn to play the guitar. JamPlay has been my principal source of instruction. After six months, I have learned more about guitar and music than I ever expected I would. Your website is an excellent resource. I enjoy using it everyday on my journey from being a complete novice to becoming a developing guitarist. It has been a real joy. Thank you.
B. G."..Everything I need to become a great guitar player is right here on JamPlay.com.."
I am loving this website! I am getting exactly what I need here (scales, notes, chord structures and theory).
The instructors are skilled, patient, pleasant and knowledgeable and that is the atmosphere I need in order to learn as I am a creature of repetition.
I especially like the way y'all have things broken down into beginner/intermediate and advanced instead of just throwing it out there. The different style section are big plus too. I am eating the rock/metal lessons up with a spoon! :-)
Also the price is simply unbeatable!!
I was impressed at how organized and structured the lesson plans are. It makes it much easier for the student land in the right area according to his/her talent level. Also you have given us a variety of instructors who will teach the same things but will attack them from different angles which gives the student a more rounded base of learning and knowledge base.
I love the added features like the articles, tab sheets/chord charts, and the built in metronome. Also the downloadable material is a plus as well.
Everything I need to become a great guitar player is right here on JamPlay.com
Very cool site!
Adam"..I've advanced much further than even I expected.."
[E-mail to Jim Deeming from JamPlay member] "... For what it's worth, thanks so much for the effort you're putting into JamPlay. Like i said, I've only been here a month or so, but I've advanced much further than even I expected when I signed up. You lessons are extremely helpful and they're something I look forward to getting into on a daily basis. That, and now I understand that fingerpicking is the style for me. It may not have been what I jumped into this scene to do...but it's what I want to do now.
Thanks for everything!!
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.
Mark".. Love it so far..."
Thank you. Love it so far. I'm a beginner. In the past, I've learned a bunch of open chords, tried some songs and nothing really worked. Now I have a regimented practice. Lessons and practice equal success. Twenty bucks a month is a no-brainer! Love it. You provide the lessons, I just have to follow - do what your instructors teach - Love it!
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!!
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.
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.
Things are going great. I'm really enjoying the lessons and have learned lots. I really appreciate the way you film the lessons. It feels like you're just sitting with the instructor and being taught one on one. Kudos to you all. In the end, it's up to me to make it happen, but the JP experience will
really benefit me along the way. There is SO much to view and immerse myself in. No excuses this time!!
I gotta give you some props on the whole JP community you have built. Teachers, students, forums, chat, friends, live Q&A, etc.. Kinda like a virtual guitar university done at my own pace. Brilliant!
Aiden P."..High quality teaching.."
This isn't so much of an inquiry as a congratulations
I'm a self-taught guitarist and your video for The Trooper helped me learn the song in a matter of hours. I wouldn't describe myself as particularly talented, but the video helped me learn the song with ease.
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
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.
Kenny Y."..I'm so glad I found JamPlay.."
I am really enjoying my membership. I've been playing guitar for 40 years (30 of those in a church praise and worship team) and have developed a unique style but was very limited in my skills. Jam play has opened a lot of possibilities for me. All the instructors that I have seen so far are knowledgeable and personable. The site is very well organized and the amount of info is staggering. I'm so glad I found Jam Play when looking online for tabs.
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!
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.
Anthony".. I give you people A+ 100% rating..."
I have to admit, this has been the best place to learn EVERYTHING about playing the guitar and learning specifics about the guitar in general. I give you people A+ 100% rating. I did not even sign on in the first few days of my membership. Busy trying to learn from a dvd in a book. I could have been so much more heading to where I want to be, and that is NOT a rock star, but a musician. I'm still learning your site, you have so much to offer. Keep up whatever your doing because I am now learning...
William H."..Acoustic Guitar has been mostly frustrating to me until I came across Steve's program..."
I am working on the beginning guitar series with Steve Eulberg and find his Acoustic Guitar series to be excellent. Although I am 80 years old and have tried on and off for many years, (using many different programs) to learn Acoustic Guitar it has been mostly frustrating to me until I came across Steve's program. He has finally put together a simple, logical, easily executed approach that really makes sense and is a joy to follow. I am looking forward to continuing his series.
Terry Clark"..your teachers are great and i love that you actually add new lessons.."
I have been taking free guitar lessons online for some time and was getting pretty damn tired of reading article after article and not really learning anything so I decided to try your site and let me tell you it was certainly worth the money. I dont like paying for websites but this one is def worth it, your teachers are great and i love that you actually add new lessons.
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!
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 :)
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!
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!
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!!
John A"..If only I had known about you years ago.."
I am really enjoying the teachings of Steve Eulberg. I have been playing the guitar for many years in various genres - folk, classical, and now leading worship, and Steve's teaching - even through the basics - is an inspiration. It is wonderful to be taught by someone who is clearly a gifted teacher. If only I had known about you years ago. I am certain that JamPlay's teaching methods will help me develop my playing skills and to become more creative.
Thank you JamPlay
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.
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 :)
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!
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!)...
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.
" . . . 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!!"
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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!
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"
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
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.
JoMo S"..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. Regards JoMo
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,
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
Kimberly H."..I signed up for them for my son who just got his 1st electric guitar. WOW! He is doing great!.."
I just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your lessons onliine. I signed up for them for my son who just got his 1st electric guitar. WOW! He is doing great. I can tell a huge difference in just a week. It's funny he feels like he knows his teachers personally. So, keep up the good work your doing a great job teaching him the guitar.
Katie B."..I've become a much better guitar player in just a couple days!.."
I am so impressed with your site and lessons! I just joined a few days ago and have listened to the three beginning lessons from most of your guitar teachers. I've become a much better guitar player in just a couple days! I will recommend your site to all my friends. Thanks you so very much for your great service!
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.
