jamorama lessons to learn guitar

When I stumbled upon Jamorama one day, I was beginning to feel really frustrated, and quickly decided that I should spend some money to see if this program would get me anywhere. In the end, I was surprised that I felt rather impressed with everything. The price was really damn reasonable. It even came with an ear-training game!

After you made the purchase, you’ll be given immediate access to the Jamorama site, where you can download all their software, articles, tabs, and videos. As of now, membership is permanent, and any upgrades and new offers are provided free-of-charge to existing Jamorama members.

Who Will Benefit From Jamorama?

I started with Jamorama as an intermediate guitar player, but from the lessons, anyone who’s an absolute beginner to intermediate students will benefit. Because of the nature of the lessons, Jamorama will apply to, and help, both electric guitar learners and acoustic guitar learners (many of the videos and illustrations in Jamorama will show pictures of both types of guitars too). In fact, I have a visitor who emailed me saying that his 8 year old son who learned the electric guitar through Jamorama.

What’s In The Package

The main learning package consists of a few separate downloads. There are different installers (current supports Windows and Mac) for the eBooks, audio, and video. There are 3 books to read, namely: Beginner (95 pages), Intermediate (51 pages), and Advanced (29 pages).

For each lesson, there are audio and video files too. To check out the video for the pictured lesson, click here:

WMV (2.61 MB)
or
MOV (2.00 MB).

There are large, medium, and small videos for every lesson, in both Windows Media and Quicktime (the sample videos linked here are small). Fun random bits are also included in the pages, such as tips, encouragements, and trivia.

The pictures in the Jamorama eBooks are very clear and easy to understand. The Beginner lessons start with an explanation on the different types of guitars, how to hold them in different positions, and how to position your hands. Again, clear pictures are included to illustrate each of these topics.

Everything necessary for you to start learning how to play the guitar is included. The Beginner book has 15 lessons. Each lesson has audio and video files to help you along, and the lessons are very comprehensive. The book moves into chords and playing basic songs quite quickly, and give you enough instruction so that you are assured to do it well. The lessons are progressive and very well structured, so by the end of the Beginner lessons, you can be sure that you are well-prepared to take on the Intermediate lessons.

Unlike several other guitar courses, the video lessons that are found in Jamorama are all done in a very clear and easy-to-understand manner. The guitar lessons are also sequenced in a comfortable structure, and you can learn as fast as you want. If you’re very determined, it’s possible to finish 4 or 5 guitar lessons in a day. At that rate, you would probably be a pretty good guitar player after a month.

Ideally though, I found that the more time you spend on a specific lesson, the better. You should fully grasp and master whatever the lesson teaches, and make sure you burn it into muscle memory before you progress to the next lesson. I recommend going through a lesson and practicing what it teaches, for at least 2 days. When you become an experienced guitar player, you’ll be thankful for the solid foundation that you’ve built, because it’ll allow you to master the more advanced guitar techniques easier.

I started on this program as an intermediate player, so I had to skip through quite a bit of the beginner lessons, but otherwise I think this is a comprehensive and thorough guitar lesson package that gives you a lot of value for the money.

Jamorama also comes with “Jam Tracks”, which are sound files in MP3 format that help you learn to adjust to rhythms and play along. There are very clean beats in the background of each track, to make it easy to follow along with, and almost any style imaginable is available. They’re in the eBooks as part of the lessons, so you can read to follow along while you listen to them.

My Verdict

If you’re looking for the best way to learn the guitar, Jamorama is it. It’s a fast and easy way to learn how to play guitar. There are hundreds of other guitar lesson packages claiming to be the “Ultimate Guitar Lesson” package, but this is the best deal around because in terms of value, and getting you up to speed with the guitar, Jamorama is the best of the best.

Jamorama is professionally put together, and I was really impressed by how helpful the instructions were. I used to go to the search engines and try to find scattered bits of guitar lessons and guides, but ever since I tried out Jamorama, it saved me a load of time and effort. In addition to the excellent lessons, the Jamorama package also gives you access to bonus games, software, articles, and tablature.

Jamorama is perfect for you if you don’t want to spend $200 for an all-video guitar lesson course. Jamorama instead gives you an excellent ebook + video + mp3 training course that’s comprehensive, complete, and done in a very professional way. Essentially, it’s a full, but low-cost way to get started with learning how to play the guitar. For these reasons, I highly recommend the Jamorama guitar lesson package. Still hesitating? Don’t – Jamorama comes with an 8-week money-back guarantee (that’s 60 days!), so I’ll recommend you to just get the package, go through the lessons, and personally experience for yourself how fast you’ll be progressing with the guitar.

  3. Hi Ben! I’d like to thank you so much for your recommendation — Jamorama really helped me learn the guitar in an easy and structured manner! I’m already playing my first song, “Love Me”, and my friends and family are very impressed with how far I’ve come!

  4. Hi Ben, I am an absolute beginner. i havent played the guitar before, and i have no clue or anything about guitars and notes or whatsoever. Do u think Jamorama can help me? pls, im so desperate. :(

  5. Definitely – I think one thing Jamorama does very well is to explain the basics of the guitar. From there, you can absolutely start learniing – for instance, Dust in the Wind is a song that I'm learning right now, and it's only a picking pattern and a few chords. What you do need to know is how to hold the guitar properly, and a good guide to the various chords, and how to pick/strum. I'd say give Jamorama a try. They've put everything in a very convenient, very useful package, and best of all, there's a guarantee, so you can always get a refund if you're unsatisfied.

  6. Thanks ben
