A Look Inside the JamPlay Members Area
The lessons are made up of a series of high definition videos. The videos are professionally shot and include several camera angles so that you can see what the instructor is playing on the fretboard. There are also additional resources included below the lessons showing the music and the tab for each song/exercise being taught. The video player has a feature that allows you to replay the specific part of the video that you are working on in a loop so that you can practice it until you get it down. I have included a sample series of lessons below from the JamPlay website. There are also plenty of free sample lessons to be found on the site.
What They Teach
So, just like a lot of the other programs and sites out there, JamPlay makes several bonus features available to their subscribers to assist them while learning the guitar.
Probably the most beneficial of these features are the Jamchat live webcam sessions with their instructors every day. They almost always have a session going and they post a schedule so you know when your favorite instructor will be online. They usually take questions and have a general discussion. When I’ve been online I usually notice about 15 to 20 people in the chat room so the instructor should have plenty of time to get to most questions.
The site has many social features such as searching for other guitarists and messaging them, chat, and JamPlay forums.
The Bottom Line
JamPlay is an excellent resource for beginner and advanced guitarists alike. They offer lessons from many different instructors that teach every style or genre imaginable. They even have live online learning sessions for those who would like to ask questions. Pairing this with the great user interface and teaching tools makes this one a no-brainer. If you are ready to play the songs you have always dreamed of playing then this is a great place to start!
