Hello Andy, I only found 1-5 scene. Did you had 6-11 scenes posted as well? Because it said it was listed but not found through the internet. Christiane

I just checked and everything appears to be there. Are you still having trouble? Can you tell me which scenes and which quality aren't working for you?

I can't play a song like this yet, but fantastic to hear all the little tips throughout the video and really interesting learning about how you built the solo, why you string skip instead of sweep, really useful, thanks

iammusicmaniammusicman replied on January 24th, 2013

this looks ridiculously hard haha, sounds fantastic though

imaheroimahero replied on January 23rd, 2013

This guy is quite talented. He's also done a lot of stuff for Lick Library, which I didn't like the Dimebag examples from, but that's beside the point. His reputation is that equal to his skill level, which is obviously quite high.. Great video.

"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
