About our Live Courses

We have upgraded, revamped, and organized in-studio, live weekly workshops broadcasted in 1080p. These focused, task-based workshops include full tablature, interactivity with the instruction, and even homework each week. We are bringing live, educational instruction into the next generation with this platform.

5,000 Lessons

In 2015, we completely re-engineered our recording studio with top of the line gear, including a full suite of 4k cameras complimented by a new audio outfit. The result is beautiful live streams to your computer, in qualities as high as 1080p!

79 Instructors

Each live course is supplemented with full tablature, music notation, and even backing tracks. Our live lessons are focused, planned, and even give you homework options on how to improve and look forward to the following week.

Live Lessons

Our staff fields questions from the audience throughout each section, and opens the "classroom" up for questions throughout each course. You also have the ability to call in live with your own video stream!

Our live platform has been a major focus over the past 18 months, and we are very excited to fully unleash it's capability! Attend any of these courses with a full JamPlay subscription and get the benefit of full interaction with our instructors in a focused, planned course.

10 Week Live Course, Each Thursday at 8pm

Get Access and save $50 immediately!

Develop YOUR foundation for playing the Blues! Learn the basics, and then see how extremely simple ideas from classic Blues players have influenced modern, more contemporary players. Get some ideas from such Blues greats as Stevie, Jimmy, Jimi, Buddy, Muddy, Chuck & more! It is not about how many notes you can play. Notes were expensive in early Blues and the players worked with a little to create a lot! Keep this in mind as you take this course. We won't be shredding or using stopwatches. We will be looking at HOW to play notes and grooves so that they have ATTITUDE and CHARACTER. See you there!

Playing the guitar and understanding the guitar are not one in the same! Building muscle memory and practicing rote memorization can take you a long way on the instrument, but to make your music come alive, to truly develop your own unique music personality, you must understand the instrument. That's what this course is all about, taking the most useful bits of music theory, teaching them in an easy to understand, sequential manner and then applying this information directly to the guitar. Having this knowledge will improve every facet of your playing from learning songs, to improvising, to writing your own material. Your friends, family and fellow musicians won't believe the change that can be wrought in a mere 8 weeks.
