Ultimate Guitar Lesson

Jamorama

Ultimate 'Start Here' Guitar Lesson Package.

jamorama.org I'm currently recommending Jamorama. I've checked out the package and find it to be an excellent start up guitar lesson program. (I'm not recommending the other Jamorama products- Jamorama Lead, or the Acoustic Guitar program at this time.) The lessons are clear and the information is packaged very well as far as internet download products go. In a very short time you can go from 0 to playing songs.

The package comes with an assortment of 'bonuses' designed to make learning easier, including Jam Tracks, Guitar Tuning software, and a software Metronome. There's an ear training program as well called GuitEarIt, which is useful and kind of fun. There's also a sight reading 'game' called Jayde Musica which is interesting although I think it would be more useful in conjunction with sight reading lessons from a pro teacher. (That is, if you have an interest in learning how to read musical notation). However the bulk of the instruction is in the form of two pdf books and a LOT of audio and video files.

When you purchase Jamorama you're given a Registration Code. You then log into the Jamorama User site and download the program. Once It's installed (simple placement of the program and folders etc) and you launch it, you're prompted for your Reg. code. On the inside you have access to all the information Jamorama provides, except that much of it resides online and has to be retreived. For that purpose you use the jamorama.org Download Manager to tell Jamorama which lessons you want to download. Once downloaded the lesson lives on your drive so you needn't be online to access it. I just went ahead and downloaded the entire collection. (Told the Manager which lessons to download and went for a bike ride!).

If you have any doubts at all about Jamorama, I would suggest you pop by the page and sign up for their free 6 guitar lesson eCourse. Yes you have to give them your email address (I used a discreet email address and can confirm that it wasn't shared with anyone) but the free lessons are great and actually I remain subscribed to Ben's weekly newsletter to this day. Ben turns out to be a real guitar lover and his newsletters are full of important and interesting info. While there, check out the system requirements (towards the bottom of the page- there is an OS X version as well!)

So really, if you're new to the guitar, this really is the Ultimate 'Start Here' Guitar Lesson Package. Excellent product at a great price. Stop over to Jamorama and grab yourself a copy.
