JamPlay Video Guitar Lessons Review
One of the best video guitar sites we've seen! 5th Oct '09
|Value for Money|
JamPlay is one of the best video guitar lesson sites that we have come across - it has in depth videos to suit the needs of guitarists of any level. At the time of writing they have a whopping 19,750 minutes worth of video lessons taught by 24 instructors. Needless to say there's a huge amount of material on here so there's a video to cover nearly everything whether it be something very generic as how to play the electric guitar, or something more specific as how to play "The Trooper" by Iron Maiden (See Demo Above).
The videos themselves are very detailed and even provide multiple camera angles when needed. It actually feels as if you have a personal instructor (or should I say "instructors" as you have access to all 24 instructors!) right in front of you. The visual quality of the video is great and the size itself is big enough so that you won't miss anything. We think that the video demos that are shown above really speaks for itself. And to make sure that you don't run out of stuff to do, new video lessons are added on a weekly basis.
One thing we really loved about this website is that the tutors do a live video feed where they play guitar while answering any questions members may have via the chat system. In fact we've been listening in on a feed by Jim Deeming while we've been writing this review. This is a great feature as it gives members a chance to ask questions that weren't answered by the videos. It also gives members a chance to get to know the tutors on a more personal level.
You're probably asking yourself "So how much is all this?". Well currently it's an investment of $19.95 a month, which works out at just $0.67 a day. We personally feel that this is great value for money considering the quality of the content, the frequency at which it is updated, and comparing it to other options that are available. Just take a look at the comparison table below:
This is one of the best sites we've seen in a long time, may be even the best. It provides a huge amount of in depth video lessons for a very reasonable price. The thing which really won us over is the live feed by the instructors as it really helps build up the community spirit.
We say, check it out!
