Arthur M."..I've got to tell you that this is the best experience that I could ever have.."
I've got to tell you that this is the best experience that I could ever have. I have taken guitar lessons from a local teacher who is superb. Unfortunately I had to stop for a while and couldn't get back with her to continue. Not trusting anyone else to teach me locally, I took a chance and tried your service. I find your instructors, especially Steve Eulberg outstanding. When I had question, the answer always came back to me within 24 hours. I want to thank you again for your professional service and excellent instruction.
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...)
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!!
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,
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!
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.
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,
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.
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!!!
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. :)
James R.".. This has been the best learning tool I have ever had.."
This is a great service, I have been one on one with teachers, watched DVDs, learned from friends, however this has been the best learning tool I have ever had.
Thank you James
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!
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
George S."..Where were you guys 20 years ago?.."
I'm enjoying the service a great deal. Doing a lot of exploring at the moment but it appears to be well planned, well thought out, and has everything I need. My only question is: where were you guys 20 years ago? I know that's not fair and it's never too late to get going. Super good instructors. JamPlay is top notch.
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.
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.
Raul R."..you never get bored.."
Hi JamPlay, I want to let you know that I am very happy with my subscription. I was almost ready to give up until I tried your amazing on-line classes. You have a first-class experience instructors faculty that is one of the best if not the best in the entire Internet. My special admiration for my instructor Jessica Baron. She is one in a million. She is so a delightful person, that you never get bored. Thanks again.
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
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!!
Steve"..I'll be with you for a while.."
Ye now that i've had a look around and completed a few lessons with Jim Deeming I will be moving from a monthly sub to a yearly one.I've looked at a lot of online lesson web sites and yours is the most concise and to the point, so i'll be with you for a while until nearly as good as Jim ( if i live that long)
Peter H."..I would like to express a "Big Thank You" to JamPlay.."
I would like to express a "Big Thank You" to JamPlay for how far you have brought me over the last 6 months or so.
In particular, I would like to say THANKS to Brad Henecke for his examplary stlye of instruction. A great blend of theory and technique with the nescessary formula of "Pratice = Gratification". I am so pleased that the music I would chose to play, is now a source of such great pleasure as apposed to a frustrating workout. The "weight is off " and the workout is a lifestyle. Thx Brad
Thank you all.
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!
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
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.
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
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.
Ellen E."..I love your web site!!!.."
I love your web site!!! My first renewal notice just came up. Great teachers and great web design.
Especially the part where I can go over things as many times as I want to. I also love the variety of the genres. This web site is what the internet was made for, it's inventors would be proud of the way you have utilized it.
Thanks Ellen E.
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"..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
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 :)
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!
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.
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.
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 :)
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.
Al S."..You are head and shoulders above your competition! Keep up the great work! .."
Greetings! I just wanted to tell you how much I think of your site and it's teachers! JamPlay is the best! I love your site - I am subscribed to 2 others - but yours is my 'home' and you are head and shoulders above your competition! Keep up the great work!
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!
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.
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!
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.
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
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.
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!
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
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!
