Well David I thank you for the words of encouragement and today being 6/18/2012 I am going to also begin your course (that doesn't mean I'll do lesson 2 today hehehe) but now I know 1 is complete. Thanks again and I am looking forward to what you have in store for me.

I just went to the G3 2012 concert last Thursday (Australia) showcasing Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Steve Lukather. Soooo inspiring and yet sooooo disheartening. Amazing night.

skelligskellig replied on July 21st, 2010

David.WallimannDavid.Wallimann replied on July 21st, 2010

Thanks so much everyone! :-)

kevinpickellkevinpickell replied on July 21st, 2010

as a final to this series could you teach us the song 'Cool New Way' from the Super Colossal album?

Jason.MounceJason.Mounce replied on July 21st, 2010

Unfortunately, We probably won't be able to teach songs from these series. We still have to abide by copyright law which requires the acquisition of licenses for each individual songs. Publishers aren't as willing as you'd like to think they are about giving those licenses out.

jboothjbooth replied on July 21st, 2010

There won't be any copyrighted material from Satriani taught, this is all about the style he uses. This is the only way we are able to teach series like this.

peinutzpeinutz replied on July 21st, 2010

yeh, me 2! i hope they get more lessons sson!

Jason.MounceJason.Mounce replied on July 21st, 2010

There's a lot more coming! Chris Lipe has a series coming on Tom Morello and Brendan Burns has a series on Jimi Hendrix! Chris' series is not filmed yet, Brendan's has been.

kevinpickellkevinpickell replied on July 21st, 2010

Tom Morello is awesome! Look forward to that. We also need style series on G. Lynch, J. Petrucci, and others. Yall are on the right track with this. Would also like to see a series on progressive style like Dream Theater. But for now I'm going to dig in on this Satriani stuff.

thesnowdogthesnowdog replied on July 21st, 2010

Greatly looking forward to all of these, thanks!

kevinpickellkevinpickell replied on July 21st, 2010

Oh my god I have been waiting soooo long for something like this! Thank you David! We need more stuff like this one here.

About David Wallimann View Full Biography David was born in Aix-en-Provence, South France in 1977. At the age of 15, he picked up the guitar and started developing a true love for instrumental music and composition.

In 1999 he was recognized by Ibanez for his promising musical achievements and received an artist endorsement. That early recognition in David's musical career encouraged him to consecrate more time on crafting his musical art and apply to the school of modern music Artist' in Cavaillon, France. He received a full scholarship there where he graduated with honors.

In 2001, David won first place for the Tal Farlow French national jazz contest which gave him a full paid scholarship to the CMA school of modern music in Valenciennes, France. He graduated specializing in advance guitar with honors.

Following his school years, David spent the next 5 years working with several bands recording, writing and playing shows in France and Belgium. It's during that time that Wallimann was exposed to the world of progressive rock which opened new doors to his musical creativity.

Deep inside the Mind is his first release as a solo artist in which he exposes his Christian faith. The album was well received in the specialized press and was compared several times to some of Frank Zappa's approach to music adding an element of humor to deep subjects.

In 2005 he joined the internationally renown progressive band Glass Hammer based in Chattanooga, TN. He released several studio albums and live DVDs with the band.

David is today working on his next upcoming solo release and is also spending quite a bit of time teaching guitar in his studio and online at JamPlay.

"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!

"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
