Exactly the course I've been needing! Clear and logical teaching progression, and really builds well on the basic hodge podge mix of knowledge I had. Thanks Jeff!

megamaniamegamania replied

Frustrating lesson for me. I'm having difficulty with the shapes, still feel my fingers are too short. Don't know the notes on the fretboard well enough yet...so taking a lot of time to figure out the notes and fingering for each pattern. The supplementals could be better....I'd prefer a graphic showing the strings with circles placed on the right fret with the notes inside the circle. This sort of visual works better for me than tab. This lesson is much more difficult then a 2.....more like the ones that make you want to give up guitar.....am a long way from mastering what's here. (doing this on an acoustic)

megamaniamegamania replied

I'm all better now. Once I stopped whining and started practicing, things started coming together. BOTTOM-UP!

Jeffery Marshall

About Jeffery Marshall View Full Biography Jeffery has been a staple of the L.A. music scene for more than 20 years. Jeffery left his humble upbringings in Northern Michigan to attend Hollywood's own Musicians Institute in 1989. Upon graduating, he quickly immersed himself in the local music scene playing in a variety of bands, one of which included the band Hardware featuring Tod Howarth of Frehley's Comet, Ted Nugent, and Cheap Trick fame. In 1994 Jeff relocated to Dallas, Texas where he teamed up with alt rockers The Judas Engine and recorded guitars on their self-titled debut Rainmaker Records release. In the late 90's Jeffery relocated to Southern Ohio playing in various local acts where he further honed his craft as a reputable Blues/Rock guitarist. In the early 2000's Jeffery returned to the Los Angeles area and toured with a variety of national acts, which included Lisa Hayes and the Violets, and Pop/Country artist Ashley Jay. About this time is when he met Paul Vallis, the founder of UK's very own Bleeding Harp. Jeffery co-authored and produced Bleeding Harp's debut CD "Gotta Have", released in 2004. Bleeding Harp quickly rose through the ranks of the L.A. Blues scene, regularly playing venues such as Harvelle's, The Blue Cafe, The Coach House and the Catalina Island Blues Festival.

In and about 2004 is when Jeffery met Country artist Rick Monroe. The two quickly hit it off as writing partners and Monroe's "Against the Grain" is a result of this pairing. Jeffery moved to Nashville and toured with Rick for a number of years, both in the U.S. and abroad. Rick's video of his Allman Brother's remake "Midnight Rider", which featured Jeffery on guitar and background vocals, was on regular rotation on country music's CMT. The group opened for a number of well-established acts including Dwight Yokum, Montgomery Gentry, and Kenny Wayne Shephard, to name a few.

In 2006 Jeffery returned to L.A. and began teaching at the world-renowned Musicians Institute, Guitar Institute of Technology where he currently resides as a full-time instructor. Jeffery teaches a variety of core classes including Single String Improv, Rhythm Guitar, Guitar Studio Skills, Rhythm Section Workshop, as well as private lessons. He has also written articles and created instructional YouTube videos for Guitar World Magazine. Jeff can be seen playing with guitar phenom Jeff Kollman in his solo group The Jeff Kollman Band and jazz/metal fusion band Cosmosquad at the world famous Baked Potato.

"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
